Commando Drift to Tsolwana

Tsolwana Nature Reserve, a superb holiday destination for groups, hikers and campers. It features luxury lodges created from the homes of the farmers who used to live here. They are spacious and well equipped for self catering, while you can also have a chef and a charlady in attendance if you so wish.

You bring the food and ingredients and Tsolwana's staff will prepare it for you while you enjoy the diversity of activities that are offered at Tsolwana. We can wholeheartedly recommend Tsolwana's facilities and outstanding friendliness and service.

Tsolwana Nature Reserve is situated approximately 60 kilometers west of Queenstown and 30 kilometers south east of Tarkastad, nestled on the edge of the Winterberg range.

Accommodation Otterford Lodge and Thibet Park Lodge are both graded three star establishments, and they can each accommodate 10 persons, while Indwe Lodge, a restored farmhouse, has its own braai boma and can accommodate 8 people.

Activities at Tsolwana include game drives, hiking, horse riding, birdwatching and 4x4 game drives to the top of the mountain offered by the friendly staff. On these game drives you can see large herds of Oryx, Springbuck, Ostriches, Wildebeest and lesser groups of Kudu, Rhino, Eland, Zebra and many others.

Our next stop will be at Fort Fordyce Nature reserve.
