Overview

Experience two very different wildlife destinations on this 10-day safari – you begin at Thornybush Game Reserve in the Kruger National Park before heading off to the Kalahari’s Tswalu Private Game Reserve. Escape to the peaceful Saseka Tented Camp in a private reserve bordering the Kruger National Park. it is here that you will enjoy five days exploring this beautiful landscape, encountering the Big 5 while staying in a luxurious safari camp.

After your Kruger safari, spend a comfortable night in Johannesburg before journeying to the edge of the Kalahari and the superb Tswalu Private Game Reserve – the largest privately owned reserve in South Africa. Enjoy game drives, guided dune walks and excursions to view San rock art; you can also simply relax at the spa or by the pool. For the perfect end to your adventure, spend an evening stargazing, or even arrange for a sleep-out under the clear African night sky.

 

Why Is This a Trip with a Purpose?

  • At Saseka in Kruger, join a community tour at Nourish Eco Village – an immersion into Shangaan culture that includes mat weaving, trying traditional food and beer, visiting projects that support education in the area, as well as meeting a traditional healer (Sangoma).
  • At Tswalu in the Kalahari, visit the community clinic, local pre-school and be introduced to the Tswalu Foundation research projects. The Tswalu Foundation has grown into a world leader in the field of environmental research within the southern Kalahari, and attracts research teams from across the globe. You will also experience guided dune walks and excursions to view San rock art.

Itinerary

Day to day

Your journey begins in the Thornybush Game Reserve, 14,000 hectares of untouched wilderness, at Saseka Tented Camp. This is a superior safari lodge in the private reserve and offers a spectacular bird-watching and game-viewing experience. Saseka is the Tsonga word for ‘beautiful’ and if you’re lucky, you might get to witness the majestic female leopard that resides in the surrounding area and goes by the same name.

Situated in an elevated position, this Thornybush tented camp flaunts sweeping views over a riverbed. Take up a seat at the bar, by the pool or perch on your private deck – you’ll be spoilt for choice in picking an area to relax and soak in the surroundings of the African bush.
