Children at Tswalu

Unlike most luxury African reserves, Tswalu welcomes children. This can be the most brilliant and stimulating place for families. An important part of our mission is to excite the next generation about our conservation vision.

Learning about nature at first hand

There is no malaria in this part of the Kalahari to concern you. Both properties create an ideal open environment for play; our pools are centrally located. At the Motse, two specially designed family suites easily accommodate larger or older families at attractive rates.

Tswalu’s Junior Ranger programme has been carefully designed to meet the enthusiasms of a broad age range. Activities include archery (where you will make your own bow and arrow), spoor identification and casting, as well as tracking on foot. Children’s bush walks are hugely educational without ever feeling like it (adults can come too). Every child is welcomed with a backpack full of guides and tools, as well as their own opportunity to chat with our hospitality staff about what they would like to do.

Our children’s menu caters for any individual likes. And our special children’s boma allows them to cook their own bush dinner. Free babysitting is also available around the clock.

Above all, unlike most, we are happy to include younger children on private game drives. This is their Kalahari too.
