The Kalahari Desert is one of the world’s most challenging environments and few people are ever lucky, or brave, enough to experience it. Thought to be the ancestral home of the San people (Bushmen), one of Africa’s oldest indigenous tribes, the Kalahari has great spiritual significance across the continent. With seemingly endless space and an unforgiving climate, the Kalahari is a fascinating frontier that is totally unmatched anywhere else in the world, and with Elegant Resorts you can explore the northernmost point of South Africa, the Kalahari Desertland, home to the country’s largest game reserve, Tswalu Kalahari, which is completely malaria-free and hosts some of the most exceptional safari experiences available, including horseback-safaris and traditional game-drives.
Established by noted conservationists, the Oppenheimer family, Tswalu Kalahari showcases the family’s affluent approach to ecological travel and dedication to preserving this ancient land for future generation. As one would expect, conservation is very much at the heart of Tswalu Kalahari’s excellent safari experiences, and the resort as a whole, making it one of the most respected and sought-after safari locations in Africa. Furthermore, the resort’s authentic African spa, spacious lodge-style accommodation and gourmet-inspired dining ensure guests can experience the best of luxury travel, together with unsurpassed safari and wildlife experiences.
