Where lux­ury meets the wilder­ness

Tucked away in the south-eastern corner of Botswana, Tuli Game Re­serve of­fers ex­cel­lent game view­ing and lux­u­ri­ous value-for-money ac­com­mo­da­tion. Gaut­eng is only a four-hour drive away, which makes Tuli a good des­ti­na­tion for a long week­end.

Home to sa­vanna, river­ine for­est, marsh­land, open plains and sand­stone cliffs, it’s a unique wilder­ness area with an abun­dance of wildlife and a rich ar­chae­o­log­i­cal his­tory. The re­gion has ev­i­dence of hu­man oc­cu­pa­tion go­ing back to the Stone Age – the fore­run­ner to a se­ries of set­tle­ments in­clud­ing Ma­pun­gubwe and Great Zim­babwe.

Many early ex­plor­ers and hun­ters passed through and wrote about the Lim­popo and its trib­u­taries. Tuli also played host to a se­ries of skir­mishes dur­ing the An­glo-Boer War, in­clud­ing the Bat­tle of Bryce’s Store on 2 Novem­ber 1899.

Tuli Game Re­serve is a land of big skies, trees, ele­phants, big cats, herds of an­te­lope and more than 350 species of birds.

The five lodges in the re­serve have fa­cil­i­ties for small or big groups, bush wed­dings, ro­man­tic get­aways, mile­stone birth­days and busi­ness ind­abas, and the Tuli team will pro­vide you with the high­est stan­dards of ser­vice and com­fort.

Com­pe­ti­tion win­ners will stay at Pride Rock, built in a river­ine for­est on cliffs over­look­ing the Lim­popo. Ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude moun­tain bik­ing, bird­watch­ing, rock art tours and game drives.

Pho­tog­ra­phers, na­ture lovers, ama­teur ar­chae­ol­o­gists: Ev­ery­one will love Pride Rock!

It is sur­pris­ingly af­ford­able to stay over at Tuli Game Re­serve. Have a look at the range of un­be­liev­able spe­cials for go! read­ers.
