Tswalu Motse Camp Setting

Situated at the foot of the Korannaberg Mountains, Motse Camp offers sweeping views of the Kalahari, providing the perfect backdrop for a truly immersive safari experience. The Kalahari Desert, stretching across Southern Africa, envelopes a substantial portion of Botswana and Namibia, with the Northern Cape Province showcasing a segment of this vast arid to semi-arid sandy expanse known as the Kalahari Basin.

The Motse Camp not only serves as a gateway to the breathtaking Kalahari Basin but also offers a range of safari activities and wildlife experiences. From private game drives to guided bush walks, meerkat encounters, horseback safaris, and stargazing, guests can immerse themselves in the unique flora and fauna of the Kalahari. The commitment to sustainable tourism is embodied in the Tswalu Kalahari Reserve's mission to provide guests with an inspiring and memorable safari experience while working towards the restoration of the unique and endemic fauna and flora of the Kalahari.

  • Exceeded expections

    Tswalu Motse is an exceptional safari located in the Kalahari desert. Our expectations were high, but they were exceeded. It is important to note that Tswalu is a unique experience. The guide was instructed to provide us with a customized experience based on our background, and he delivered. We witnessed a leopard devouring a fresh springbok kill in a tree, stalking cheetahs, amusing meerkats at dawn, and even discovering the incredible pangolin. It was an amazing adventure.
