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.
