After a month of extensive refurbishments we are delighted to announce the reopening of Tswalu. All interiors have been beautifully redesigned by Cecile and Boyd and
offer guests absolute luxury in the Kalahari. Guests can expect the softest Polish linen, awesome extended raised decks overlooking the endless plains. Soft, organic interiors reflecting the light, colours and textures of the Kalahari and the same Relais & Chateaux luxury, magnificent sunsets, stars and horizons that Tswalu is all about.

A House for Hippo's ?

Ulusaba, Richard Branson's luxury camp in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve adjoining the Kruger National Park has a brand new tree house styled suite at Safari Lodge called Mpfuvu House!

The Mpfuvu House suite (pronounced ‘mp-foo-vu’ which is the Shangaan word for Hippopotamus) is perfect for those looking for a little more privacy and seclusion. Located just 15 minutes walk along a raised canopy walkway from Safari Lodge, the new suite offers excellent views of Xikwenga Dam, where hippos and elephants come to bathe.

This stunning suite features a King Size bed cocooned in a luxurious mosquito net, spacious lounge including a sofa bed, dining area for up to 4 guests and a private viewing deck. The lavish en-suite bathroom, complete with oversized bath, separate shower and his- and hers- vanities, has floor to ceiling windows for panoramic views over the bush.

Inside there are all the usual creature comforts, including a full in-room bar, tea and coffee making facilities, plus torches and ponchos to keep guests warm when walking to and from the Lodge.

Beyond the entrance to the suite is another small bridge to the ‘Mpfuvu Lounge’. This beautiful open air viewing deck is the perfect place for sundowners complete with lounges, viewing stools and a large dining area for up 20 guests. Binoculars are available as well as a self-service bar.

The Mpfuvu House will open for bookings on Monday 2nd June 2008, with arrivals from the 1st July 2008 priced at R7800 per person per night.
