A safari far off the beaten track

Visit one of Botswana's least visited regions and explore a wildlife-rich rugged landscape on a tailor made Tuli Block safari holiday

A tailor made Tuli Block safari holiday in Botswana's least visited region is great for those who want to get far off the beaten track. Hidden snugly away in the south east of the country, between Zimbabwe and South Africa, a trip here combines very well with Kruger National Park. Historically known as the ‘Tuli Enclave’ and named after the river just over the border in Zimbabwe, the ‘Tuli Block’ offers easy access to a genuine wilderness experience, with guaranteed sightings of abundant wildlife, a profusion of birds and fascinating topography. This is a largely rugged and dry landscape, famous for its rocky outcrops, kopjes and baobab-strewn plains. Small pockets of marshland and the flow of water from the Limpopo River ensure good game throughout the year.

Tuli also boasts numerous archaeological and historical sites, with visible evidence of early communities including pottery shards, beads, smelting relics and granaries. Its modern history dates to the time of Cecil John Rhodes and due to its strategic position along the South African border, Tuli was a focal point of the Boer War in the late 19th Century.

Apart from a portion of land in Ghanzi, around Gaborone and Lobatse, Tuli Block remains one of the few areas where freehold land in Botswana is available. It’s a series of game farms and private reserves where visitors can enjoy game drives, horseback safaris, bush walks and mountain biking amongst vast herds of elephant, kudu, impala, wildebeest, giraffe, zebra, waterbuck, eland, cheetah, lion - some black maned - and leopard. In addition, caracal, aardwolf, hyena and jackal can be seen at night. 350 recorded bird species include shrikes, the boulder chat, the short-toed rock thrush, raptors, woodpeckers, kori bustard and even ostriches. The aquatic species are especially interesting and include cormorants and the beautiful pygmy kingfisher.

Whilst you can fly in just one hour by light aircraft for your Tuli Block safari holiday, it's quite easy to arrive by vehicle from Johannesburg. The 500km trip will take about 5 hours and the border-post hours are 8am to 4pm daily.
