Located in the Northern Cape, Tswalu Kalahari is South Africa’s largest private game reserve. This stark yet beautiful desert region is a textured terrain of vast open savannah, sandy dunes and diverse habitats. Meaning ‘great thirst’ or ‘waterless place’, it is home to an incredible wildlife population including zebra, giraffe, oryx, eland, as well as white rhino and the desert black rhino. The reserve is also inhabited by smaller mammals such as the pangolin, aardvark and African wild cats.
Offering exceptional opportunities for viewing cheetah, the massive lions of the Kalahari are well known for their stunning black manes. With a vision to ‘restore the Kalahari to itself,’ protection and conservation of this magnificent copper and gold landscape, and its endemic wildlife, is paramount. The Kalahari offers unique safari experiences set against broad expanses of pristine semi-arid grassland, rugged dunes, and towering Korannaberg Mountains.
