Tuli Wilderness offers a wonderful natural location to awaken the explorer in you and to enjoy an authentic wilderness experience reminiscent of Africa a century ago.

Situated on an exclusive concession in the vast Northern Tuli Game Reserve in eastern Botswana, Tuli Wilderness is owner-managed by Stuart Quinn who has a wealth of experience in the southern African wildlife tourism, hospitality and training industry.

One has a wide variety of choices in the activities and accommodation that we offer, from professionally-guided game drives and walks in our tented safari camp to tough wilderness experiences sleeping on the ground amongst the elements to self-catering camping to luxurious walking experiences.  Regardless as to what one is looking for, a memorable and exceptional personal experience will be found at Tuli Wilderness.

The Northern Tuli Game Reserve boasts the world’s largest elephant population on privately owned land and elephant viewing is unparalleled with some incredible sightings, providing fantastic photographic opportunities. Lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, spotted and brown hyaena are amongst the many carnivore species that occur on the reserve. Night drives provide sightings of the more elusive nocturnal creatures.  Large herds of free-roaming eland, zebra and wildebeest are seen regularly and many other plains game are also found in the area.

Birding at Tuli Wilderness is excellent with over 370 species identified in the area. Species range from Pel’s Fishing Owl, Secretarybird, African Hawk Eagle and Southern Ground-Hornbill to Three-banded Courser and Dusky Lark. We have a resident pair of breeding Verreaux’s (Black) Eagles at Eagle Rock.

Whilst the dominant cover is Mopane, the tall Apple-leaf and gigantic Mashatu trees are numerous and groves of Acacia occur in some areas of Tuli. The Sesame bush, with its swollen stems and angular stiff branches grows prolifically alongside the rocky ridges.

Tuli Wilderness borders on the Limpopo River in the south and on the Motloutse River in the east and many small tributaries of these rivers criss-cross the land in between. The landscapes are diverse ranging from riverine forests through alluvial floodplains to Mopane veld and interesting sandstone ridges.

The Tuli area is rich in archaeological heritage and beautiful San rock art sites have been discovered alongside numerous archaeological sites dating back from the Stone Age. Scattered artifacts are still being discovered over the concession.

We look forward to seeing you in one of our camps, on one of our experiences or have you join us on a trail or ‘African Walking Safari’.

Serolo Safari Camp

Serolo Safari Camp is located within the Northern Tuli Game Reserve along the shady floodplain of the Limpopo River, 600m from the river itself, under the many massive riverine trees including the magnificent Mashatu and tall Apple-leaf trees. Tuli Wilderness’ private and exclusive 24 000 acre concession of Botswana wilderness makes an ideal getaway or stop-over point for travellers between Botswana and South Africa.

Molema Bush Camp

Molema Bush Camp is situated on the banks of the Limpopo River in the Tuli Block, about 30 km downstream from Platjan Border in the eastern-most corner of Botswana. Molema is located on privately-owned land immediately to the west of the Northern Tuli Game Reserve, in an area soon to be incorporated into the Greater Mapungubwe Transfrontier Conservation Area (TFCA), and is very easily accessed from South Africa. Tuli Wilderness’ private and exclusive 24 000 acre unfenced concession of Botswana wilderness makes an ideal getaway or stop-over point for travellers between Botswana and South Africa.

Walking Trails

Two experienced professional rangers accompany you on the trail. A typical day is made up of two sessions: after a dawn wake-up and a cup of coffee or tea and rusks, we head off on a morning trail, which lasts around four hours. We take regular breaks and rest halfway through the morning walk at a pleasant spot to enjoy basic snacks, fruit juice and water. We then return to camp, have a shower and a hearty brunch, followed by a siesta. In the afternoon we go for another walk and return to camp just after sunset. The evening meal is served about an hour later around the camp fire.
