Tuli Region & Northern Tuli Game Reserve
Interactive Map of the Tuli Region
the confluence of the Shashe and Limpopo rivers is a land of big
vistas, big skies, giant trees and great herds of game. Rich in history and mythology,
it is a place where the present echoes with footsteps of the past
and stirs the imagination, making it difficult to leave and impelling
one to return. The greater Tuli region, which encompasses the
Northern Tuli Game Reserve, is bounded by the Motloutse, the Shashe
and Limpopo rivers in the northeastern corner of Botswana and the
southwestern part of Zimbabwe.
The region has a variety
of landscapes, which fall into several broad categories... Beautiful
riverine forests along the river banks and watercourses, particularly
on the banks of the Limpopo, Motloutse and Shashe rivers, Karoo sandstone
outcrops forming picturesque hillocks and buttresses, dolerite dykes
- the most spectacular being Solomon's Wall - and Mopane savanna presenting
vast vistas with clean horizons, magnificent sunsets and no sign of
human habitation or excroachment.
Game viewing in the Tuli Reserve is excellent. There are around 600 elephants in the region, this being a high density for such a small area. The rocky terrain also provides superb habitat for leopards and other predators present here including lion, cheetah and wild dogs. Local specialties not often seen anywhere else in Botswana include the klipspringer antelope and the rock dassie.
The birdlife in Tuli is also good due to the diversity of habitats for such a small area.
Conservation and Tourism in Botswana
The National Parks and Reserves in Botswana are a haven for wildlife and photographic safaris. Outside of the sanctuary of the reserves, Botswana is divided into parcels of land commonly referred to as concessions. Those in the Ngamiland District, which inlcudes the Okavango Delta and Linyanti / Selinda reserves, are identified by codes beginning with 'NG' and numbered NG1 to NG51. Read more...
