South Africa's largest private game reserve, Tswalu Kalahari, owned by the Oppenheimer family, provides an intimate setting for getting up close to Africa's most impressive wildlife.

The best way to spot wildlife on safari is to blend in seamlessly with the landscape, which is just what you'll do at the gorgeously low-profile Tswalu Kalahari. Home to a diverse animal population, including the elusive black rhino and the black maned lion, the Kalahari is a nature lover's paradise. Set out on an early morning guided bushwalk, game drive, or horseback safari - or just relax by the pool with a great view of the active watering hole - and you'll surely spot some action worthy of National Geographic.

Choose to stay at either Tswalu Kalahari's main property, The Motse, or at the nearby personal home of the Oppenheimer family, Tarkuni. The Motse accommodates up to 20 guests in eight individually appointed suites, each of which offers an en-suite bathroom, open fireplace, private sun deck, and Wi-Fi access. For families and larger groups, Tarkuni is available for exclusive use. Accommodating up to 10 guests in five luxurious bedrooms, Tarkuni offers en-suite bathrooms, indoor and outdoor heated showers, two lounges with open fireplaces, a covered deck, and swimming pool.

At the end of the day, dine on seriously delicious food paired with the finest South African wines, while watching the sunset over the Kalahari. Tomorrow is sure to be another unforgettable day - you can explore ancient archaeological sites, take a hot-air balloon ride, fly to nearby Augrabie Falls, relax at the spa ... like the wildlife and landscapes here, the possibilities are endless.
