The detail

Tswalu Kalahari is known as South Africa's largest private game reserve with over 110 000 hectares of traversing land. Tswalu offers extraordinary privacy in which to explore a rare and vast wilderness and is the perfect combination with other South African destinations like Cape Town and the Kruger National Park. Safari.com boasts an incredible tour that combines these three destinations perfectly - 11 Day Cape Town, Tswalu & Kruger

Tswalu Motse - The Motse is a luxury camp with 9 private guest legae (Tswala for ‘home’) set at the foot of the Korannaberg Mountains with sweeping views of the Kalahari. Three of the legae have been designed specifically for families, with 2 separate bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom, connecting to a luxurious separate living room.

The main house features elevated decks, elegant lounges, an infinity pool, a secluded spa, mezzanine library, satellite TV and an endless view over the savannahs.

Tswalu Tarkuni - Set amid two rolling mountain ranges, Tarkuni is an oasis of serenity with beguiling views on every side. The private homestead offers five luxurious en-suite bedrooms for the exclusive use of a multigenerational family of a party of friends, each with its own private deck and star bed and boasts a vast open-plan lounge and dining room, an intimate mezzanine library, and a spa therapy suite. A covered deck leads to a private tsala and swimming pool.

The homestead has its own dedicated team including a host and private chef to ensure meticulous and completely personal service. A private vehicle, personal field guide, and tracker complete this bespoke safari experience.

Resting lightly on the land are six tented safari homes (four x 1 bedroom and two x 2 bedrooms), each a private,contemporary micro camp inviting deep engagement with the southern Kalahari in all its unfettered, changeable beauty.

So far, great service
This review is for the booking only as we have not taken our trip yet. Safari expert Sara Van Coille has been great to work with. We booked later than we planned and she was able to come up with an itinerary that was perfect for our group. Sara has responded to all our questions and was very quick to get back to me. From our experience so far, we would definitely recommend Safari.com

Botswana Experience
Anja, our agent, was very kind and helpful all the time to organize the perfect trip. She did it quickly and efficiently. The amount of days we spent in every place was perfect to really enjoy the hotels and the different activities they proposed (in general the hotels are very nice but we don’t have the time to really experience the place but here we did). Also the selections of hotels was very very nice. Nice infrastructure, excellent service (very professional) and outstanding places to visit (all the parks were great). We had a wonderful experience with the company in Botswana.
