Tswalu Tarkuni, Kalahari
|Set amidst two rolling mountain ranges, Tarkuni is the Oppenheimer family’s own personal home here at Tswalu and the ultimate private sanctuary.
Recently redesigned to uncompromising standards of comfort and elegance, Tarkuni is an exceptional choice for families or groups of great friends. Its five luxurious suites, each with a magnificent en-suite bathroom, accommodate a maximum of 10 guests.
This vast and magical malaria-free landscape takes conservation as its first priority, with Nicky Oppenheimer’s vision to “restore the Kalahari to itself”. With over 80 game species (including the Desert Black Rhino, black-maned Kalahari lions, cheetah, wild dogs and meercats), its unique landscape, and unparalleled service delivery, Tswalu is the ultimate game retreat - whether it be the idyllic honeymoon or a truly memorable family holiday.
With direct flight access in some style to both Cape Town and Johannesburg, Tswalu also provides the ideal partnership with both the intensity of the Kruger, or the glamour of Cape Town.
Tarkuni creates an oasis of serenity in the desert. The home has its own dedicated team including a host and private chef to ensure a completely personal service. A private vehicle, personal field guide and tracker ensure an equally bespoke safari experience.
Tarkuni’s quiet pool and shady salas offer calm and contemplation. Its own traditional boma has seen many celebrations. And its beguiling charm has led many guests to return to what becomes their home in the Kalahari.
