Tswalu Kalahari is South Africa's largest privately owned game reserve (100,000 hectares), and is situated in the heart of the Northern Cape Province. Game-viewing opportunities are unparalleled, with desert-adapted animal species such as desert black rhino, black-maned kalahari lion and loveable meercat encounters, and the reserve's child-friendly approach and malaria-free location make activities and an appreciation of the Kalahari wilderness accessible to individuals and families alike.
Guided walks, private vehicles, horse-back safaris and hot air ballooning are all available as are nights sleeping out under Africa's biggest skies, simply to experience the sunsets, the stars and the silence.
There are only 2 lodges on the entire reserve - the Motse and Tarkuni - meaning only a total of 30 guests can be accommodated at any one time, and therefore privacy and exclusivity are paramount to your experience.
Tarkuni is a private villa set amid rolling hills, offering the ultimate in luxury and personalised service for families and small groups of up to 10 guests. The accommodation offers 5 luxury bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and outdoor heated showers, open plan lounge and dining room, a library, a covered patio and swimming pool. Children are welcome at Tarkuni and families can feel perfectly at home. Tarkuni offers the luxury of absolute flexibility with a private game viewing vehicle, as well as a dedicated host and chef.
The Motse - a Tswana word for village - consists of 8 individual stone walled and thatched-roofed legae (small houses/suites). Six legaes sleep 2 guests each, while 2 legaes have been designed with families in mind, each accommodating 4 people.
Each suite comprises a spacious bedroom, an en-suite bathroom with both indoor and outdoor walk-in shower, a large dressing area, an open fireplace and a private sun deck overlooking a waterhole, often leading to unique, unplanned game viewing opportunities.
