Each booking is allocated a Private Safari vehicle with Ranger and Tracker.

We freshen up in the Thatch Boma and are offered warm towels and local delicacies.

We then board our Landrover and make our way to the Motse Lodge , a 50 minute drive.

Tswalu is a vast, magical land of infinite possibility, with sweeping vistas and a liberating sense of space. The green Kalahari is nature at its most diverse and surprising, and to spend time here is to be touched by exuberant, soulful beauty. Considered important for thousands of years, we’re now striving to conserve this breath-taking landscape for future generations.

Overnight:  Tswalu Motse Lodge – Fully inclusive of all meals  & activities 

Day 6 – 8 :  Tswalu Kahalari Reserve

An early morning visit to Tswalu’s habituated meerkats to see them in their natural habitat is an unforgettable encounter.

Guests have the opportunity to get within a few metres of one of three habituated family groups to watch them pop in and out of their burrows, stand sentry, groom and play with each other, soak up the sunshine, and forage in the sand for tasty morsels. The families are referred to as the Mokala, Gosa and Rockstar groups.

Each drive or activity, such as a starlit dune dinner or Naledi sleep-out experience, becomes part of your exclusive, personalised Tswalu safari. Just like the sands of the Kalahari, we understand that your priorities may shift during your time at Tswalu. That’s why we’ll never try and shoehorn your experience into a fixed schedule.

Unlike most private reserves in South Africa, there are no other lodges on the property and the land is not shared with guests from other concessions or properties. This means that there are no areas of the reserve that are off-limits to guests. Heading off in a new direction every day, it literally feels as if you have the entire southern Kalahari to yourself.

Scenic helicopter flights, nature walks, rock art excursions, time in the field with one of the scientists from Dedeben Research Centre, or a session in the photographic studio, editing and printing your best wildlife images, are a few of the other specialised activities on offer. Tswalu is malaria free, making it an ideal safari destination for families. Children are actively encouraged to participate fully in the safari experience

No two Tswalu experiences are the same.

That’s because the way you see and touch this magical place will be shaped by your particular interests and will happen at your own pace. Tswalu is a generous landscape and as the sun rises above the Korannaberg mountains each morning, new opportunities to learn, play and explore come to life.

A private vehicle allows for unlimited time at sightings, which may include some of the elusive species that find sanctuary here, such as aardvark, pangolin, bat-eared fox, brown hyena, and aardwolf. Other iconic Kalahari species include the black-maned Kalahari lion, the desert black rhino, wild dog, oryx and cheetah. At any time of the year, there are special sightings and transformations to the landscape influenced by seasonal changes and the absence or abundance of water.

Overnight:  Tswalu Motse Lodge – Fully inclusive of all meals  & activities 

Day 9:  Kruger National Park Safari

Last morning Game Drive and breakfast is served !

We check out and get ready for our next adventure .

We say out goodbyes to our Ranger and staff and board the luxurious Pilatus Aircraft for our direct flight to Johannesburg.

We are met at Johannesburg and assisted to the Fedair flight to the Legendary Kruger National Park.

After a short one hour flight we land at the Leopard Hills runway .

Occasionally there are lions on the strip in which case  the aircraft will circle until they are chased off

We arrive in time for the Afternoon/Evening Game Drive.

Overnight: Leopard Hills Private Game Reserve  – Fully inclusive of all meals and game activities

Day 10 & 11:   Kruger National Park Safari

An Exclusive Five-Star Luxury Experience in the World Renowned Sabi Sand Game Reserve

Award-winning Leopard Hills is located in the western sector of the renowned Sabi Sand Game Reserve, bordering the world famous Kruger National Park. This Sabi Sand lodge is perfectly set on a rocky outcrop, offering magnificent views over the bush and an active waterhole on the plains below.

The Reserve comprises over 10,000 hectares of incredibly diverse ecosystems making Leopard Hills the ideal destination to view plentiful game in its natural habitat. Here the ‘Big 5’ (elephant, lion, rhino, buffalo and leopard) abound and viewing them at close proximity is our specialty.

Within the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, the ‘Big 5’, (elephant, lion, rhino, buffalo and leopard), abound and viewing them at close proximity is our speciality. Traversing over 10,000 hectares of incredibly diverse ecosystems makes Leopard Hills the ideal destination to view plentiful game in its natural habitat.

Each day brings something different, as you explore the bush in an open game viewing vehicle. Whether it is a leopard on the hunt, lions roaring at twilight, hippo wallowing in the river, or a crocodile basking on a sandy bank; each viewing will enthrall.

Your knowledgeable and professional ranger conducts early morning and late afternoon/evening game drives,

in search of Africa’s big game. The latest state-of-the-art open game drive vehicles, specifically designed for Leopard Hills, have individual bucket seats and centre consoles, ensuring your optimum safety and comfort.

Leopard Hills prides itself with the best rangers in the business, and they offer a safari experience like no other, from sightings of big game in their natural surroundings, to the smaller flora and fauna, which make this piece of paradise a place we are privileged to call home.

Overnight: Leopard Hills Private Game Reserve  – Fully inclusive of all meals and game activities

Day 12:  Walking Safari

Exploring the African wilderness on foot provides us with a real sense of place and we become a part of the environment, absorbing every detail, leaving nothing but our tracks behind.

Your senses will become tuned in to the many facets of nature that are often overlooked from a vehicle as you see, smell, hear, touch and even taste the true soul of Africa.

Coming across an attractively marked leopard tortoise, watching a fascinating rhino beetle or a stunningly plumed lilac breasted roller, are just a few of the amazing encounters awaiting you!

Trails are flexible depending on each guest’s requirements. Shorter walks are conducted after the morning game drive and are usually for 1 or 2 hours. Longer walking trails can be arranged anytime and can even be in place of morning game drives.

Our walking safaris are lead by an experienced fully qualified Trails Guide who will tailor your experience based on your specific interests. After an introductory briefing on the all important “do’s and don’ts” of bush walking safaris, the trail will be structured around the fitness levels of the group. In keeping with safety regulations on guided walks, no children under 16 are permitted.

Overnight: Leopard Hills Private Game Reserve  – Fully inclusive of all meals and game activities

Day 13:   Your adventure ends

Last morning Game drive followed by breakfast

We check out and after a memorable time we are taken to the airstrip by our ranger.

Mauritius & Cape Town Honeymoon

Mauritius & Cape Town Honeymoon Delights

Spend your Honeymoon in the ” Mother City ” of Cape Town which hosts beautiful Cape Dutch homesteads, elegant Georgian townhouses, traditional dancers and minstrels performing in the city streets, the smell of spicy Malay cooking, the taste of a well made wine, and the sound of the Snoek horn advertising the wares of fish vendors, this city will fill your senses. The bells of St George’s Cathedral alternate with the plaintive tones of the muezzin calling the faithful to prayer. Visitors give a startled jump, and Capetonians calmly glance at their watches, when the noon gun booms above the city – a relic from the days of sail when sea captains had to check their chronometers.  End the trip of a lifetime, lazing around on pristine white beaches in Mauritius, sipping cocktails and watching the sunset over the Indian Ocean.

Day 1:  Arrival in Cape Town

On arrival at Cape Town, you will be met by your private tour guide and transfer to the gorgeous 12 Apostles Hotel, where you will be spending the following 5 nights

The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa stands at the edge of the world.

And all around, you can walk the wilderness trails of the Table Mountain National Park. We’ll even pack you a picnic.

Day 2:  Private Half Day City Tour & Table Mountain

On a clear day, the distinctive shape of Table Mountain can be seen from up to 200km out to sea, while its summit provides spectacular views of the city, its Waterfront and Harbour below, the majestic Hottentots Holland mountains to the East and Cape Point to the south.

The Table Mountain cableway underwent a R90 million upgrade in 1997 and the new system – a combination of Swiss and South African Engineering – boasts revolving floors in the new cable cars, giving passengers a 360 degree panoramic view on their way up the mountain.

The five-minute ascent to the top of Table Mountain offers a 360° view of Cape Town, the ocean and the neighbouring peaks.

Once at the top visitors enjoy spectacular views and the peaceful feeling of being over one thousand metres above the city below. The area at the top of the mountain is surprisingly large so leave enough time to stroll along the paths, enjoy the viewing platforms and soak up the vistas.
