Kuruman and Tswalu
is located in the Northwest of South Africa.

Kuruman is a modest town on the N14 between Johannesburg and Upington, which owes its existence in this otherwise arid landscape to the presence of a spring known as The Eye. Apart from the green lily pond around the spring itself, the town has little of interest and is rather scruffy.

To the south lies the Wonderwerk Cave, an interesting archaeological site with a very low key visitor centre.

To the north lies Tswalu, at 1000 square kilometres the largest private nature reserve in the country, with a full range of desert wildlife including lions, cheetahs and wild-dogs. The two lodges here offer almost certainly the best non-malarial safari on the continent ...


Tswalu Motse ... is a lovely small lodge with six gorgeous guest suites.

Tswalu Tarkuni ... is another lovely small lodge, which can only be booked out in its entirety for private groups of up to ten people in five suite rooms.
