Review For Tswalu Kalahari

My family has been on several African Safari's so we've seen some pretty nice camps. But even a couple of years later, Tswalu is still talked about as a legendary place and experience. It starts with being met at the Joberg gate when you disembark from your 16-hour flight from the US and are whisked to the charter terminal for your private flight. The accommodations here are over-the-top outrageous ... a massive door opens up into a HUGE room that makes you feel like royalty. Common areas were similar and the wading pool providing a cool dip. There is an infinite pool that birds perch on which provides outstanding photographic opportunities. Food was absolutely incredible - my kids and wife still talk about it. They have a very large private reserve and we never saw another vehicle except coming to/from camp. Wildlife was strong and varied ... including some incredibly cute Meerkats. The guides and tracker did an exceptional job tracking a pair of lions that had bedded down in the brush. We went out on horseback one day and it was incredible to be trotting right up to the game. Watching the sun set over thousands of acres of land (with not another human in sight) while drinking a Gin & Tonic was surreal. Tswalu is not cheap ... but it delivers - highly recommended.
