Celebrate Winter with an Extended Stay at Tswalu Kalahari

Tswalu Kalahari Reserve is celebrating winter with an exclusive extended stay offer. A private 4×4 safari vehicle, guide, and tracker are guaranteed with every booking at no extra cost, along with all the other signature experiences guests have come to appreciate as part of a luxury safari in this off-the-beaten-track destination on the southernmost edge of the Kalahari.

Throughout the year, Tswalu offers an extraordinary, richly layered safari. Black-maned lion, cheetah, wild dog, rhino, buffalo, and rare antelope sightings add to the drama of private, unscripted days in this private wilderness. ‘As winter approaches and the reserve starts to fade from green to gold, our guides and trackers will begin actively searching for daytime sightings of the elusive species that find sanctuary here,’ explains Russel Binks, Tswalu’s head of Marketing and Public Relations. ‘The crisp, clear-skied days of winter are the best time to enjoy walks, horse riding, dune picnics, and time in the field with one of the scientific research teams supported by the Tswalu Foundation.’

‘It’s fantastic to see the growing demand for longer stays’, Binks adds. ‘With all the activities on offer, many unique to Tswalu, we always recommend at least four nights on the reserve. The Stay 4 Nights, Pay for 3 Exclusive Offer is valid for all new bookings between now and 15 December 2024 and you get the first night on us when booking any four-night stay. Choose from the Motse, Tarkuni or Loapi or combine two camps, for example, two nights at the Motse followed by two nights at Loapi.’

Recognition by the world’s most desirable travel media attests to Tswalu’s enduring appeal and ongoing excellence. Loapi Tented Camp is one of Afar’s Best New Hotels 2024, one of only 31 properties worldwide chosen for its outstanding location, design, service, and commitment to community and sustainability. This award follows Loapi’s star moment on the cover of Conde Nast Traveller in March with an iconic sunrise shot, plus being chosen as one of Town & Country’s Best New Hotels on the Planet 2024. Most recently, the light footprint Loapi won ‘Best Sustainable Project’ at the Hospitality Design Awards 2024.

By choosing Tswalu, guests become part of a bold regenerative conservation vision to restore biodiversity to the fragile Kalahari ecosystem while positively impacting those who call it home.
