2022 Rates & Promotions

A private 4×4 safari vehicle with a dedicated guide and tracker is guaranteed with each booking, allowing all our guests to explore Tswalu Kalahari private reserve at their own pace. Our rates include the complete Tswalu experience, from full-board luxury accommodation to complimentary safari activities – these include day and night game drives, habituated meerkat encounters, visiting rock engraving sites, nature walks, animal tracking, horse riding, birdwatching, and stargazing. In addition to season-specific outdoor dining experiences, from dune dinners to bush picnics, one complimentary dinner at Restaurant Klein JAN is also included. While Tswalu Kalahari is accessible by road, most of our guests fly directly into the reserve on private charter flights or with Fireblade Aviation’s scheduled charter service from Johannesburg or Cape Town. On arrival, guests are met and welcomed by their guide at the private tarred airstrip for the short road transfer into camp.

“Our five-day stay at the Motse was perfect. From Klein Jan to the rooms to the regular meals to the game drives, all was managed with attention to our preferences and a commitment to a good experience. We are planning our next visit and will stay longer - it was a struggle to leave”
