Tswalu Kalahari Game Reserve

DESCRIPTION

Surrounding the rugged Koranneberg Mountains in the Northern Cape, Tswalu Kalahari Game Reserve covers 1000km2 (100,000 hectares) of land on the edge of the desert wilderness that is the Kalahari.

Tswalu is the historical home of the San, whose storytelling and dream imagery can be seen at the many archaeological sites found in this unique private game reserve.

There is a perception that the Kalahari is a sparse and desolate desert. In reality it is a semi-arid grassland with wide open savannahs and a diversity of habitats. Tswalu is unique because it combines the typical Kalahari savannahs and sand dunes with the Korannaberg Mountains.

The diversity of habitat (and climate) has resulted in an extremely diverse animal population. There are about 80 species of mammals and approximately 240 species of birds. The open habitat makes game viewing excellent and the animals can be appreciated within their natural habitat.
