ABOUT THIS WEEK

This once in a life photographic trip will leave even the most experienced traveller breathless!

Combining two completely different areas of South Africa, from the semidesert environment of unique Tswalu Kalahari Private Reserve to the world famous Londolozi, in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve this photographic safari will show you what you have always been dreaming.

We picked up two of the most stunning and luxury accommodations (the Tarkuni Villa at Tswalu and the Pioneer Camp at Londolozi) as our base for a journey that will be as unique and diverse as much as spectacular!

You will be accompanied by two professional wildlife photographers (Andrea and Linda), they will help you with your camera settings and Lightroom editing, they will take care of the best vehicle positioning, with regards to composition and lights.

Flexibility will be the main dish both in Tswalu and in Londolozi, with a plethora of activities you will decide from day to day.

The trip starts with a flight from Johannesburg to Tswalu Kalahari, where you will spend 4 nights at the private Tarkuni Villa (part of the National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World). You will experience the dramatic beauty of this semidesert area and its inhabitants. You will discover how predators got adapted to this hard environment as well as the magic of the little and extremely rare creatures such as pangolins, meerkats and aardvarks! You will set your days as you prefer, in accordance to the guides suggestions, you can choose to have as many game drives as you want and when you want, during the day or at night ( and we mean the real night! ). You can have a horse-back safari experience or just relax indulging in a massage in the luxury of your spectacular suite.

After 4 nights you will experience a world class private charter flight which will connect directly Tswalu and Londolozi.

The Pioneer Camp is a Relais & Chateaux small, luxury lodge, and it will be your base for the following 3 nights.

Go on stunning Big 5 game drives in open safari vehicles, with a special focus on leopards, elephants and lions!

Leopards are the flagship of this Reserve, you will never find a better place where to go so up and personal with this elusive cats. Thrilling night game drives will leave you astonished and will allow you to discover the life of the bush creatures after the sun goes down. Enjoy delicious meals and relax under the majestic African sky in this incredible Camp, with only 3 spectacular suites, for your own exclusive use!

On the last day a flight transfer will bring you back to Johannesburg, for the end of this incredible journey.

THE TWO AREAS

Tswalu Kalahari is South Africa’s largest private game reserve, now protecting over 110,000 hectares of spectacular grasslands and mountains.

This part of the Kalahari is a “green” desert, semi-arid grassland with open savannahs, rich in a remarkable range of habitats.

Within its boundaries, Tswalu uniquely combines the classic rolling Kalahari dunes with the Korannaberg, the southern Kalahari’s only range of mountains. These massive hills provide a sheltering influence which increases the biodiversity of the area enormously as well as creating a stunning visual backdrop.

Londolozi’s powerful combination of geography and wildlife creates the famous atmosphere that returning guests call the ‘Londolozi feeling’.

Londolozi is situated on the Sand River in the very heart of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. This reserve forms part of the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park, a vast and growing area that currently covers six million acres and incorporates the famous Kruger National Park. Wild animals move freely across this vast space, offering spectacular game viewing and a true wilderness experience.
