Tswalu Kalahari lies at the foot of the Korannaberg mountain range, facing westwards across the grasslands of the Kalahari. This 115,000-hectare private reserve has grown over the past 30 years, rewilding an area that was once farmland. Now, it is home to just two lodges, as well as a host of rare and endangered species. These include desert-adapted black rhinos, black-maned Kalahari lions, cheetahs and African wild dogs.
