Tuli Safari Lodge in Botswana: a timeless safari with style and soul.
The Northern Tuli Game Reserve is a hidden gem in the easternmost corner of Botswana. This is a unique, timeless corner of Africa with spectacular wildlife, breathtaking landscapes and fascinating history.
Between Tuli’s time-sculpted kopjes and the legendary Limpopo River lies another gem: Tuli Safari Lodge. A small, luxurious and relaxing retreat. A verdant oasis in a ruggedly beautiful wilderness. The yin to Tuli’s yang. Just 10 elegant suites nestle in peaceful, spacious gardens shaded by ancient trees.
Varied safari adventures include game drives, bush walks, night drives, hides, sleepouts, meaningful community visits and an excursion to the meeting point of Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe opposite Mapungubwe World Heritage Site.
There is also lots to do within the lodge itself, with a large swimming pool; small hide overlooking a waterhole; a lovely panoramic viewpoint which is called the star deck, and numerous other quiet places to spot the resident wildlife or with views over the reserve and the river; a walking trail and of course there’s always the option of just chilling, reading and sunbathing in the spacious, shady grounds …!
