Tswalu Kalahari


Tswalu Kalahari is South Africa’s largest private game reserve, covering an area of over 100,000 hectares. No other game reserve offers such flexibility. Dedicated guides and butlers allow to choose how you would like to spend your day – from breakfast in bed to a leisurely spa treatment in the comfort of your own deck overlooking the magnificence of the Kalahari. Thereafter enjoy a leisurely game drive, and indulge in a private gourmet picnic savouring the essence of Africa.

Owned by the Oppenheimer family, Tswalu takes conservation as its absolute priority; our vision is simply ‘to restore the Kalahari to itself’. No more than thirty guests at a time can discover the beauty of this landscape, its diverse wildlife, and the serenity of what may well be South Africa’s last great wilderness. Keen supporters of wildlife and conservation projects, Nicky and Strilli Oppenheimer have won awards for their generous commitment to preserving the habitat and encouraging education in the field of conservation.

Tswalu Kalahari can be easily accessed by both road and air. Private scheduled charters offered daily flights from Johannesburg or Cape Town International Airports directly onto Tswalu Kalahari’s’ own private tarred airstrip. Tswalu is “malaria free” and has superlative game and offers sightings of some of South Africa’s rarest and most extraordinary wildlife.
