The breathtaking Tswalu Kalahari Reserve in South Africa

By Adrian Prisca


Updated on

Deep in the South African environment we found this gorgeous game reserve ready to welcome everyone who fancies safaris, wild life and scorching heat. The Tswalu Kalahari Reserve is easily accessible via flying or driving. Just make a reservation for a charter from Cape Town or Johannesburg and you’ll be nicely welcomed upon arrival on Tswalu’s private tarred runway.

The whole reserve is owned by the fabled Oppenheimer family, providing a perfect environment for the typical African wildlife and a spot on setting for those that enjoy watching the game. The overall low-profile aspect of the reserve blends tourists in such a way that they don’t get to disturb the animals, possibly may even go unnoticed.

Some of the species found within the park are black-mane lions and black rhinos, creatures that have become extremely rare in Africa today. Guests can choose to start the safaris during mornings via guided bushwalks, horse-riding or game drive. If in need of simple relaxation, just hang around at the pool and view an active watering hole. Thus you may both lounge and watch the game.

Furthermore, if guests feel the need to get away from the main property and look for other residences, they may choose to visit Tarkuni, home of the Oppenheimers or the Motse, which can accommodate around 20 people in 8 individual suites. Each of these features an open fireplace, Wi-Fi access, private sun-decks and en-suite bathrooms.

The Tarkuni on the other hand is aimed towards families or large groups, being able to accommodate 10 guests in 5 luxurious bedrooms. This one provides anything tourists may need, from the covered-deck to the swimming pool, two lounges, indoor/outdoor heated showers, open fireplaces and en-suite bathrooms.

Although the main point of coming here is the wildlife, every tourist will surely feel the need to try new foods. The culinary domain is ensured as well, so the guests can enjoy the finest South African wines and delicious diverse dishes while watching the gorgeous Kalahari sunset.

The reserve has something else in store as well: you may visit archaeological sites, fly to the Augrabie Falls, relax at the spa, ride a hot-air balloon and a lot more. Starting at $1,254, book a reservation at this superb location and behold some of the beauties our world still has to share to us – until it is too late, sadly.
