Stretching for 114,000 hectares across the southern Kalahari, Tswalu is South Africa’s largest private game reserve and a destination in its own right.
Dramatically scaled landscapes, breathtaking vistas, diverse habitat with fascinating fauna and flora, and a wide choice of privately guided safari experiences set the scene for a safari of unparalleled exclusivity and freedom. Game drives here are something entirely different. Space is what you feel. Horizons, vistas and timelessness. The unique wildlife adds its own flavour to the reserve, but for the most part you simply feel awed by the sheer expanse of this wilderness that most of the time feels like its all yours.
With the opening of Loapi Tented Camp’s six private tented safari homes, guests can now enjoy the best of Tswalu and explore the destination with an incredible 6-night itinerary that includes three nights at the Motse (first night free) followed by three nights at Loapi. With this first-ever dual camp offer from Tswalu, they are also including complimentary return flights to Tswalu from Johannesburg or Cape Town with Fireblade Aviation for two adults. Children pay 50% of published flight costs.
Pioneering and nomadic in spirit, Loapi Tented Camp’s individual safari homes are surrounded by open savannah grasslands and accommodate two or four guests for the ultimate private wilderness experience. The 4 one-bedroom homes and 2 two-bedroom homes, spanning over 300 square metres and over 400 square metres respectively, are for those who are after complete privacy whilst on safari. Sustainably designed and environmentally sensitive, each tented home is tucked into the contours of a valley set in the Korannaberg mountains. The six homes are at least 50 metres (165 feet) apart to ensure privacy and solitude. Personal service is provided by a dedicated house manager and all meals are prepared by a private chef in the interactive kitchen. As with all our camps, a private safari vehicle, guide and tracker is guaranteed.
Motse is the larger of the two luxury safari camps, and was designed with individual couples and families in mind, and accommodates a maximum of 18 adults in nine legae or suites.
Indigenous gardens throughout the camp are a haven for antelope and birds (many of which are endemic to the area), while a waterhole in front of the main guest area attracts a variety of wildlife, especially in the dry season. The main camp’s communal guest area comprises a series of generous spaces for relaxing and dining indoors and outdoors. Covered verandas lead to two swimming pools and a fire pit for sundowners. The main lounge has a feature stone fireplace, mezzanine library and walk-in wine cellar stocked with premium South African wines. An intimate boma is the setting for barbecue dinners under the stars. The Tswalu Spa is situated at the Motse, along with a Gym, Photographic Studio and the Gallery, a boutique stocked with art, jewellery, clothing and souvenirs.
Tswalu is an utterly unique safari experience. We cannot recommend it highly enough, especially for those who have previously enjoyed a safari in the traditional bushveld of the Kruger Park or surrounds. This is something else entirely.
