Tswalu’s remote location in the southern Kalahari has the perfect off-the-beaten-track get away. From the landmark Korannaberg mountains to the grassy, red sand dunes rippling away to the horizon, this big land of privately owned wilderness in the Northern Cape is the front line of sustainable ecotourism in South Africa. Tswalu pride themselves on offering guests the ultimate privacy, flexibility and freedom to explore the green Kalahari’s diverse, game-rich habitats... at their own pace. They also pride themselves on having the lowest guest footprint in South Africa. Their low-impact, high-value approach to sustainable ecotourism helps generate money to conservation contributions that are key to their aim to conserve the southern Kalahari for future generations.

It is hard to even begin to do Tswalu justice with my words. Without a doubt, Tswalu is a magical experience on every level: Scenery, animals, accommodations, cuisine, service and, last but so not least, the people. I have never met more gracious, lovely and kind people in all of my travels. Nothing short of once-in-a-lifetime and unforgettable.
It was the most luxurious and relaxing experience but we also learned so much about the Kalahari and about the area and it was truly just the most special experience.
Thanks for the amazing stay
Tswalu was fabulous, we enjoyed every minute. It is only thanks to Conservio that we were able to go, we are so appreciative of all their efforts to make this happen and ensuring that our stay was a great one. We would definitely do it over and over again!
