Land of giants
The Tuli block forms a long, thin fringe of land on Botswana's south-eastern frontier. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty with majestic rock formations, strange vegetation, abundant wildlife including some 350 bird species, a profusion of birds and a rich archaeological heritage.
The Northern Tuli Game Reserve, on the confluence of the Limpopo and the Shashe rivers is the collective name for several privately-owned game reserves including the Mashatu, Ntani and Tuli Game Reserves, covering all the land north of the Limpopo River.
You can expect to spot Africa's giants - elephants, lions, leopards, giraffes, cheetahs and spotted hyenas plus bat eared foxes, aardwolves, kudu, zebras, bushbuck and baboons. Spotlight-assisted night drives may reveal porcupines, aardvarks, spotted genets and civets, in addition to the larger carnivores. Other antelopes are eland, impala and steenbok. One of the area's attractions is the game viewing walks and night drives on offer.
Mountain biking within the reserve has become a popular adventure sport to combine game viewing with the excitement of approaching wild animals in the natural habitat. Armed game rangers accompany you for safety and share their extensive knowledge of the bush with you to guarantee an unforgettable Botswana safari.
