In the heart of the barren Green Kalahari lies an oasis of tranquil luxury. Tutwa Lodge is a serene sanctuary on an unblemished tract between the Green Kalahari and the mighty Orange River. As a Tutwa guest you enjoy the pleasure of a unique private wilderness safari over 160 square kilometers of land. Boasting 24km of Orange River frontage, Tutwa is a source of life and bounty in a wild, ancient desert. This rewarding wilderness encounter features safari drives, nature paddles, birding and interactive conservation experiences.

Luxurious suites at Tutwa Lodge are spacious, air-conditioned and dressed in fine linens, with full bathrooms, personal bathrobes and indulgent amenities. All suites have their own verandas and balconies offering landscape and mountain views of the beautiful Green Kalahari.
