Dedicated field guides and butlers allow guests to choose how they would like to structure their days at Tswalu; from breakfast in bed to a leisurely spa treatment in the comfort of own rooms overlooking the magnificence of the Kalahari. Thereafter enjoy a leisurely game drive, and indulge in a private gourmet picnic savouring the essence of Africa. There are truly exceptional species thriving at Tswalu; such as the Desert black rhino (this population represents one third of South Africa's population), famous black-maned Kalahari lions, endearing families of characterful meerkats, cheetah, and rare antelope species (roan, tsessebe, sable). Tswalu has a diversity of over 70 species of mammals and 230 species of birds, making game watching an absolute treat. Rare creatures, such as, the pangolin, aardvardk, aardwolf and porcupine are sighted on Tswalu Reserve.
