The Oppenheimer family’s private game reserve is South Africa’s largest. Spread over 100,000 hectares, it is imbued with the ancient magic of the San people as well as the rare wildlife of the Kalahari, including the black-maned lion, the aardvark and two families of meerkats, habituated to humans after many years of interaction.

Catch a glimpse of an endangered pangolin, sleep on a deck under the stars, and enjoy locally sourced, delectable meals.

We love Tswalu Kalahari for families thanks to homey, villa-style accommodations and a range of activities sure to keep everyone in the family engaged and happy. We’ll often place this experience at the end of a safari itinerary, as it’s a wonderful location to wind down your adventure in South Africa.
