Encounter the unique Green Kalahari at Tutwa; hauntingly beautiful, timeless as its ancient past and settled in its future between two of South Africa’s iconic regions: the harsh and unforgiving Richtersveldt, and the mighty Orange River. The unique combination of game-viewing and river activities, world-class Fly-Fishing and Leopard Protection Project make for an unforgettable experience.
