The Kalahari is the ancestral home of the San Bushmen and some of their ancient engravings can be seen at Tswalu; current research suggests these may be amongst the oldest art on Earth and you can learn a great deal about their culture and traditions before heading out into the bush to learn bush craft, spoor identification and tracking animals on foot.

Tswalu welcomes families and the ‘Junior Ranger’ programme ensures that children of all ages enjoy an exciting and diverse experience. One morning they may wake to find that the day will begin with an archery lesson, before heading out into the ‘bush’ for spoor identification and tracking animals on foot. More traditional game drives, sleep outs under the stars, a ride in the ‘Kalahari cart’, or perhaps just a splash in the swimming pool are some of the other activities available. Of course, ‘Junior Rangers’ cannot operate without equipment, and on arrival every child is given a backpack full of guides and tools to aid them on their adventures.
