Oooh Yum Yum, a Truffle Safari in South Africa!

“GOD’S OWN FOOD – THE KALAHARI TRUFFLE” – W.E.G. LOUW (AUTHOR AND POET)


Come be a truffle pig with us!  Search for the elusive desert gold – the Kalahari Truffle.  Dig up, cook and eat your own truffles, or as the San call them, !nahas.  !nahas are distantly related to French truffles.  They are specific to the Kalahari, and this year, because the area has had excellent rainfall, we’re expecting a bumper season, starting in April.


Spend a minimum of 4 days on a unique truffle safari enjoying all the luxury of award-winning Tswalu Kalahari, with its vast expanse of malaria-free wilderness, superlative game and sightings of some of South Africa’s rarest and most extraordinary wildlife, including the desert black rhino, black-maned Kalahari lions, meerkats, cheetah and rare antelope.


At Tswalu Kalahari they cater for just 30 guests in two luxury lodges, and the emphasis is on privacy, flexibility and exclusivity.  We will tailor your experience to suit you.


Design your own itinerary through Road Travel with game drives, bush walks and horseback safaris, animal encounters, star-gazing and sleep-outs.  Indulge in spa treatments in the Indigenous Spa Garden.  Dine in the bush, the Boma, or on your own private deck.  Enjoy sundowners in the dunes.


Families are welcome and children will revel in the special children’s program which includes bush walks, picnics and tracking lessons.


This is Africa’s most unique safari package… We don’t guarantee that you’ll find truffles, but we guarantee you an unforgettable experience.  Get there before the bat-eared foxes and meerkats do….


The Kalahari Truffle Safari Package includes Free flights from Johannesburg or Cape Town, Full board luxury accommodation, Private vehicle, personal guide & tracker for the duration of your stay, All beverages & selected wines, Walking & horseback safaris, Laundry & valet.
