Tuli

In stark contrast to the Okavango, Northern Tuli Game Reserve lies in the north-east of the country and offers exquisite landscapes, a host of historical, cultural and natural history as well as rich and varied wildlife.  Situated 850 kms south east of the Okavango, this privately-owned reserve is flanked by the Shashe and Limpopo Rivers, which serve as natural boundaries with Zimbabwe and South Africa. 700 square kilometres of remarkable and diverse habitat incorporate verdant riverine forest and marshland punctuated by towering sandstone cliffs and unusually shaped rocky outcrops. This supremely beautiful habitat is home to an impressive 48 species of mammals and over 350 species of birds. 

The area is a treasure chest of bushman’s painting reputed to go back many thousands of years and holds the remains of ancient settlements relating to the Mapungubwe era – hence it being recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Tuli is also often referred to as the ‘Land of Giants’ due to its endless skies, huge vistas and the enormous Nyala berry and Baobab trees. In a nutshell, a super destination for those looking for a tantalising mix of history, culture and wildlife and unique scenery.

Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
