Motse Camp is Tswalu's main property and offers nine spacious suites, three of which are family suites, each with two bedrooms and two bathrooms separated by a lounge. All suites are equipped with large beds and mosquito nets, a modern bathroom with bathtub, indoor and outdoor showers, lounge, private terrace, open fireplace and air-conditioning (the weather is hot from October to April).
The main building has numerous lounge areas, a swimming pool, an outdoor restaurant with a terrace where guests can enjoy al-fresco meals if the weather is fine and warm, and an indoor dining area for cooler days. A boma is the setting for a traditional dinner or barbeque; meals may also be served in the privacy of guests' rooms upon request. The small, well-appointed spa offers a good choice of treatments. Our dedicated chefs cook up a mealtime selection that contains something to please all palates.
Tswalu Private Game Reserve also offers a private camp for groups and families:

Marvel at the world’s second largest canyon from the lodge’s terrace! Fish River Lodge is the only lodge situated on the very edge of the spectacular Fish River Canyon, offering guests unparalleled views from sunrise to sunset. The Fish River has nibbled away at the rock for millions of years to create a river valley 550 m deep and 90 km long - and you are sleeping just 8 m from the abyss ...!
The unique quiver trees that are found all around the lodge have had a great influence on the design of the lodge. The dark exterior colour of the main building and the rooms blends seamlessly with the harsh, stony surroundings. The interior decor is a mix of traditional and modern furniture, with many accessories created in the workshops of nearby San and Nama people.
The lodge offers 20 spacious chalets with large window façades allowing spectacular views of the canyon. The rooms have a veranda with deckchairs, a bedroom, dressing room and bathroom with indoor and outdoor shower. Due to the exposed location, strong thermal winds are likely to arise in the afternoon as the temperature rises, which can become a bit noisy. For this reason, on arrival guests are given a welcome pack with earplugs to ensure a good night's sleep.
Sandy paths connect the chalets with the main building. Here you will find the reception, the restaurant, the lounge and of course the large outdoor area with pool and deckchairs and direct access to the bar.
The access road is NOT from Seeheim, but further west, as the lodge is located on the western side of the canyon. The drive from Keetmanshoop towards Lüderitz to the D463 turn-off takes one hour, then another hour on the gravel road D463 to the next signpost 'Fish River Lodge', from where it is about another 30 minutes to the lodge.
The former farms 'Vergelee' and 'Soutkuil' have been merged into a private Canyon Nature Park. Guests of Fish River Lodge enjoy exclusive access to a 45,000 hectare area, which includes 74 km of the Fish River riverbed itself.
Little Kulala offers eleven climate-controlled rooms (it's very hot in the Namib region from November onwards!) with en-suite facilities, extra outdoor shower, private plunge pool, veranda with outdoor lounge, and a skybed where guests can spend a romantic night under the clear, starry sky.
The camp places great emphasis on natural materials, and the colours of the linen, cotton and mohair fabrics blend seamlessly into the natural surroundings. The Kulala Camps stand out for their fantastic location close to the Sossuvlei dunes and with exclusive access to the park.
Sossusvlei is the area most associated with Namibia: Red dunes as far as the eye can see (up to 380 m high, coloured red by the clay-rich sand) and dead trees in the Vleis or pans, decaying slowly at the will of the arid climate. The Vleis were created by the Tsauchab River, which probably once flowed to the Atlantic some 50 km away. The whole Sossusvlei region is quenched with water during those very rare years when a good amount of rain falls, prompting bushes and flowers to spring up everywhere.
Eight elegantly furnished, thatched Meru-style villas sit nestled in the green belt along the banks of the Kunene River. The main building houses a dining area with large outdoor terrace, a river bar, gift shop, lounge/library and a swimming pool.
The camp is stylishly and luxuriously furnished and each of the en-suite rooms is equipped with a lounge, outdoor shower and fantastic terrace, where guests can relax and read on the sofa or in the hammock. The views over the lush green vegetation along the riverbanks and the sweeping desert landscape are breathtaking.
Running a large distance parallel to the coast, Hartmann Valley acts as the gateway to Serra Cafema. The airfield where guests arrive was built on a plateau, from where the road leads steeply (and full of surprises) down to the river. The surrounding area is a spectacular combination of sand dunes, rugged rocky outcrops and the broad grass plains of Hartmann Valley, lined with rolling hills and sprinkled with so-called ‘fairy circles'.
The River Club, with its Edwardian-style house and manicured lawns on the banks of the swift-flowing Zambezi River where hippo and crocodile float, seems to straddle the continents of Africa and Europe. Its main area is a wellappointed residence, with a comfortable lounge, large dining room, impressive library and wide veranda on which breakfasts and teas are taken. Lush gardens (where midday meals are often served) spread out beneath the trees and a croquet court is an ideal venue for a Pimm‘s-soaked croquet game. The pool seems part of the river itself, while a secluded deck with hammocks and loungers provides respite.
Ten luxury chalets are spread out amongst the riverine vegetation (seven River Suites, two Luxury River Suites with plunge pool and one Luxury River Family Suite with two bathrooms and private plunge pool). Their originality stems from the fact that one side is completely open to the river, so that there is an uninterrupted vista of the Zambezi and its far bank from both bed and bathtub. Each room looks west into glorious African sunsets. If you would like to indulge in even more luxury, consider the Princess Mary Suite.
The rooms at Mombo (7 x twin + 1 x family room with two en-suite bedrooms) and Little Mombo (4 x twin) are generously equipped, each with a comfortable en-suite, living and sleeping area, indoor and outdoor shower, private bar, sala (outdoor lounger) and large veranda.
All rooms and main areas have large decks from where a huge variety of wildlife can be viewed at any time of day. The plain to the front of the camp fills with water during the floods, attracting a large number of water-loving red lechwe and buffalo.
Mombo and Little Mombo are linked by a long wooden walkway (approx. 5 minutes apart) with a swimming pool, gym and spa room as connecting elements. Both Mombo and Little Mombo have a stylish lounge, bar and dining area. A beautiful curio shop completes Mombo Camp's main building.
Mombo Camp is the flagship of Wilderness Safaris and unbeatable in its combination of luxury and pure wildlife action.
Mombo Camp is only accessible by light aircraft. The private airstrip is located just 15 minutes from the camp. Flight time to Maun in a Cessna Caravan is 30 minutes, and 1 hour 20 minutes to Kasane.
