Tswalu Kalahari aims to make a contribution to conservation through three main conservation goals, i.e. the restoration of the natural environment to a pristine condition, the re-establishment and protection of biological diversity and the maintenance of the natural ecological processes characteristics of the Kalahari environment. This entails the management of the entire ecological system, including the vegetation and the available water resources to restore vital ecological processes which have disappeared in other parts of the Kalahari, thereby maximizing the diversity of life found in the region.
The name means ‘thirsty land’, and this arid desert stretches for some 350,000 square miles. It is famous for its landscape of savannas, and in fact the Kalahari supports more animal and plant life than other large deserts. You can see some exotic wildlife gather at the watering holes along the dry riverbeds.
