Kalahari, South Africa

Featured Safari Destination by SAFARI GURU



Tswalu is a unique environment which falls within the arid savanna biome of southern Africa and has three main habitats – dunes, plains and Korannaberg mountains. The presence of these mountains form a huge basin which acts as a natural rainfall catchment. This provides a healthy water table and encourages a large, successful diversity of life - with about 80 species of mammals and 240 species of birds.

The main focus of the Tswalu Kalahari tourism experience is to expose guests to the wonders of the Kalahari ecosystem. The guides are encouraged to explore all aspects of this ecosystem including plant life, insects, birds, reptiles and the smaller mammals and to help guests to understand the importance of conservation with particular reference to Tswalu's vast and unique wilderness.

While Tswalu is home to most of the "charismatic" African big game species such as lion, cheetah, wild dog, desert black rhino and buffalo, Tswalu has developed into a vast area of unique biodiversity and natural beauty which offers safe haven to a number of rare and endangered species, including pangolin, aardvark and aardwolf.

Guests are encouraged to experience a variety of game-viewing opportunities over and above the regular game drives in a 4X4 vehicle - from guided bush walks, leisurely horseback safaris, to spending time with the habituated meerkats.

Tswalu inspires a new sustainable way of life with its long term vision of restoring the wilderness for future generations. It's an inspirational legacy which redefines wilderness conservation, the safari and guest experiences, community engagement, and research.
