Overview

Tswalu lets you reconnect with the richness of the earth. It offers an escape to a place that’s governed by the ancient rhythms of the seasons, rather than the clock and the calendar. The cool breeze carries both myths and promises - by making good on them we can fulfil our founding family’s vision of restoring the natural environment and empowering people. Tswalu offers a vision of hope that brings together conservation, research, and an unrivalled safari experience. Everything we do is centred around our creed: To leave our world better than how we found it. No two Tswalu experiences are the same. That’s because the way you see and touch this magical place will be shaped by your 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. With your own dedicated guide and vehicle, you can experience Tswalu exactly the way you want to. There are no fixed schedules or time limits at special sightings – during your stay, the dunes and grasslands are yours to explore the way you want to, and each wildlife encounter can unfold at its own pace.
