EXPERIENCE TSWALU

SAFARI WITH PURPOSE

EXPERIENCE TSWALU

No two Tswalu experiences are the same. That’s because the way you see and touch this magical place will be shaped by your particular interests and will happen at your own pace. Tswalu is a generous landscape and as the sun rises above the Korannaberg mountains each morning, new opportunities to learn, play and explore come to life.

Every Tswalu safari is a true journey to the heart of an inspired conservation vision, and a landscape that’s dreamlike in its intensity and scale.

ALWAYS PRIVATE GAME VEHICLES

With your own dedicated guide and vehicle, you can experience Tswalu exactly the way you want to. There are no fixed schedules or time limits at special sightings – during your stay, the dunes and grasslands are yours to explore the way you want to, and each wildlife encounter can unfold at its own pace.

HELICOPTER SAFARIS

Viewing Tswalu from the air is the best way to appreciate the sheer scale of the southern Kalahari. The folds in the land reveal themselves as you look down on mountain peaks where quite possibly no-one has ever walked and trace intertwined game paths that wind through the grasslands.

HORSE RIDING

Bond with Tswalu and our specially trained horses and gain a different perspective as you follow game trails on horseback. A Tswalu horse riding experience is not about speed, but about gently exploring dry savannah and seasonal riverbeds and seeing the land anew from within a herd.

WALKING SAFARIS

Much of Tswalu’s beauty can be found in the smaller details: the ripples left by the wind on the crest a sand dune, a yellow flower opening to face the sun, or the tracks of a porcupine digging for roots. Walking at Tswalu gives you the opportunity to see these and other signs of the abundance of the southern Kalahari, as well as following the tracks of larger species.

THE MALORI

Watching thousands of stars slowly spin through a black velvet sky as you fall asleep makes a night spent on our Malori sleep-out deck an unforgettable experience. Enjoy a glowing Kalahari sunset as you eat dinner, then see the world anew as birdsong and the strengthening light awaken you at dawn.

THE MEERKAT EXPERIENCE

Join a group of habituated meerkats as they emerge from their burrows and warm themselves in the rising sun or meet up with them as they return home at the end of the day and groom and play at dusk.

SAN PETROGLYPHS

Join your guide in trying to puzzle out the hidden meanings in millennia-old rock engravings of animals, birds and abstract shapes. Today, no one knows whether they were created as memories, prayers or maps, but their beauty and mystery endure.

RESEARCH AND CONSERVATION

Spending time with one of the many researchers whose studies are supported by the Tswalu Foundation provides additional insights into the finely balanced Kalahari ecosystem, and lets you see cutting-edge conservation at work.

TSWALU GUIDING TEAM

Tswalu’s team of experienced field guides and trackers all took different routes to reach the Kalahari. Despite that, they are united in their passion for conserving Tswalu and their eagerness to unravel its mysteries and share them with you. Their enthusiasm is infectious, and they are true ambassadors for the restoration of the grasslands and dunes of Tswalu.

AFRICAN ITINERARIES

ROAR AFRICA

We have always valued the power of travel to incite change and aid in the conservation of wildlife and wild spaces.  2020 will mark the year that travel changed forever. The current devastating humanitarian and economic impact of Covid-19 and its subsequent ‘global quarantine on consumption’ have forced us to reimagine travel anew, with smaller footprints, lower contact, and the kind of transformative experiences that foster empathy, open-mindedness and a connectedness between those who travel and the communities who benefit from it.
