Situated in the southeastern corner of Botswana, alongside the borders of South Africa and Zimbabwe, lies the Tuli Block. It consists of a conservancy of privately-owned game farms. It is fondly known as the 'Land of Giants', where huge trees line the banks of the Limpopo and the Shashe rivers, massive herds of elephant wander the river basin, and the large apex predators are prolific. The Tuli gets incredibly dry during the dry winter months, and game species are drawn to the rivers and to the remaining pools. The Tuli is a unique safari destination and offers a wide array of activities, from traditional game drive-based safaris to horseback and cycle safaris. It is easily accessible from Johannesburg and Francistown, and the border is relatively quiet.

Why we like it

Grand, majestic landscape; Excellent predator and elephant populations; Unique safari experiences such as horseback and cycling
