Tarkuni was first in South Africa, and second in Africa, after the winner Chongwe River House in Zambia.
The Good Safari Guide 2013 is the definitive collection of the best safari lodges, camps and mobile operations in Africa, and The Safari Awards are decided by a judging panel of independent safari expert tour operators.
Nominations were made by over a thousand luxury travel professionals, as well as hundreds of readers of Condé Nast Traveller, Tatler, Brides and Travel Africa Magazine.
The Good Safari Guide says this about Tswalu: “We love the flexibility of Tswalu: guests choose when to go on game drives, when and where to eat (dining options include dune picnics, champagne breakfasts and boma dinners), and children are so well looked after too.”
Recently redesigned to uncompromising standards of comfort and elegance, Tarkuni is ideal for families or groups of up to 10 friends, and has five luxurious suites, each with an en-suite bathroom.
The villa 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.
