Tuludi is Natural Selection’s most luxurious safari camp to date, with its seven tree house-styled tents nestled on the edge of an immense flood plain, providing breathtaking views of the untouched wilderness of the Khwai Private Reserve in the northern extent of Botswana’s Okavango Delta. The camp overlooks a lagoon, home to a resident pod of hippo. The Khwai is known for its exceptionally prolific wildlife!
Beneath the cool, dappled shade of leafy leadwood trees, the tents are marvelously spacious, each including their own lounge and dressing room. The six double-room tents and one exceptionally roomy family tent all have their own en-suite bathroom with a bath, indoor and outdoor shower, as well as a private plunge pool. In a dreamy mirroring of the Okavango, the décor comes alive with Ardmore’s gorgeously wild-inspired textiles, playfully adorned with monkeys, crocodiles, leopards, and boldly detailed flora. Chandeliers of dip-dyed rings of high thorn and jacaranda branches hang from the ceilings, and walls are lovingly adorned with bespoke artwork by Tuludi artist, Sarah Kelly.
Award-winning mosaic artist, Sarah Pryke, celebrates the Delta’s iconic wildlife across the main area’s bar in shimmering shards of artfully placed glass. As the golden hour sets the mosaic ablaze, choose your favorite sundowner from an expertly curated selection of South Africa’s finest wines, a robust range of craft beers and artisanal botanical gins.
Overlooking the unique natural wetland, incorporating both the wet floodplain and dryer savanna, the landscape and wildlife from the tents and main area are a sight to behold, with a constant flow of animals coming to quench their thirst at the water elephant, zebra, giraffe, buffalo, plains game – and their predators, like lions, cheetahs, leopards, and wild dogs.
Besides the camp’s resident pod of hippos, the area is also home to a special leopard family which is carefully monitored under the partnership of the Khwai Private Reserve and Botswana Predator Conservation Trust.
Deliciously, Tuludi’s food is hearty, home-cooked and served a la carte, allowing for versatile variety to suit every taste. Alfresco brunches are served after an early morning game drive, in the shade of the bush, and dinner is a starlit feast.
