The most exclusive property to date, under Natural Selection, will debut July 2019 in the Okavango Delta in Botswana. The new Tuludi will be located in the Kwai Private Reserve in the northern area of the Okavango.
With only seven tents set in 494,210 acres of wilderness, animal sightings are plentiful as the Okavango Delta is home to leopard, lion and wild dog. Tuludi Camp is set on the Kwai Private Reserve, which is dotted with verdant forest, deadwood trees, open savannah, and in the middle of it is the Kwai River, which is the source of water that attracts herds of wildlife in their droves.
The seven tree-house styled luxury tent rooms offer uninterrupted views of the floodplains and roaming wildlife. The tents and their outdoor living space are over 1,000-sq.-ft. and feature a separate dressing and sleeping area, en-suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers, and al fresco bathtubs. Outside each tent has a sunken seating area, a hanging chair, and a private plunge pool, all which overlook the floodplains. The camp is entirely solar powered to ensure carbon emissions are kept to a minimum; and is also single use plastic free.
In addition, the property features a treehouse library that is set high up in the canopy and the perfect place for guests to curl up with a book or listen to the sounds of nature that surrounds them. During their stay, guests can explore the Delta landscape, but not just on usual game drives, here the waterways are the best way to experience the Delta from a mokoro—Botswana’s equivalent of Venice’s gondolas. On their cruise guests will learn about the small things that are easily missed from the 4×4 land cruiser. In addition, boating safaris are also available, and the ideal way to see pods of hippo and elephant in an unobstrusive way. Or, a walking safari might be just what those clients who are up for a little more adventure seek.
Rates stat at $1,020 pp per night based on two guests sharing. Rate is inclusive of full board accommodation, house drinks, and all safari activities.
