Tswalu Kalahari is South Africa’s largest private game reserve, protecting over 110,000 hectares of scenic grasslands and mountains. Conservation is taken seriously here with the reserves motto being to ‘restore the Kalahari to itself.’ No more than 30 guests at a time can visit so this is a tranquil and exclusive choice to explore this savannah paradise.
Accommodation choices are scattered throughout the reserve; The Motse is a nine-suite collection of ‘legaes’ or huts built of desert sand, local stone, rich red clay and traditional Kalahari thatch. Each comprises a large bedroom with open fireplace, en-suite bathroom with both an indoor and outdoor shower and a large study area. The main house has a sanctuary-like spa & gym and a fantastic wine cellar.
The fabulously-decorated villa, Tarkuni is the private residence of the Oppenheimer family and offers a complete oasis. Its five suites (with heavenly bathrooms) accommodate a maximum of 10 guests in total.
A truly once-in-a-lifetime experience awaits at Malori (meaning ‘dreamer’ in Tswana), a sleeping deck which offers guests the unparalleled experience of sleeping in the wilderness, under the fabled ‘diamond skies.’
