Kalahari, South Africa

Set in the North West parts of South Africa the Limpopo province and the Kalahari offers a unique experience. We focus on the Waterberg area and the Madikwe Game Reserves in Limpopo where the scenery will keep you in deep awe. The Kalahari offers the safari goer the opportunity to see some of Africa’s secret and rare animals such as the elusive pangolin, aardvark and many more. Experience habituated meerkats on the red soils of this special biome. Meet South Africa’s indigenous people, the Bushmen. We highly recommend this area once you have been to see the bigger animals in other parts of South Africa.

Hotels in Kalahari, South Africa


The sheer, unadulterated wilderness of this place is breathtaking
Tucked away in the far north of South Africa is a 75000 hectare, malaria-free wilderness inhabited by a profusion of species from Vervet monkeys to Leopard and - of course - the odd very fortunate human.
Madikwe is widely acknowledged as being one of the finest conservation areas in Africa. This is this remarkable lodge - crafted from an exquisite palate of rich woods, raw stone and soft muted tones. Elegantly proportioned suites offer individual rim-flow pools, sweeping wooden decks and private outdoor showers. Guest facilities are of the highest quality whilst service is attentive and warm, never intrusive.


Tswalu falls within the arid savanna biome of southern Africa and has three main habitats – dunes, plains and Korannaberg mountains. The presence of these mountains form a huge basin which acts as a natural rainfall catchment. This provides a healthy water table and encourages a large, successful diversity of life - with about 80 species of mammals and 240 species of birds. The main focus of the Tswalu Kalahari tourism experience is to expose guests to the wonders of the Kalahari ecosystem. Our guides are encouraged to explore all aspects of this ecosystem including plant life, insects, birds, reptiles and the smaller mammals and to help our guests to understand the importance of conservation with particular reference to Tswalu’s vast and unique wilderness. Rare and endangered species. While Tswalu is home to most of the "charismatic" African big game species such as lion, cheetah, wild dog, desert black rhino and buffalo, Tswalu has developed into a vast area of unique biodiversity and natural beauty which offers safe haven to a number of rare and endangered species, including pangolin, aardvark, aardwolf, African wild dog, rare antelope such as roan, sable and tsessebe and endangered raptors.
