Tuli Block is known for its unique geographical features such as Solomon's Wall with astonishing basalt cliffs towered 40 meters in height. The Tswapong and Lepokle hills with views of rocky outcrops scattered with sesame trees. Once known as the Tuli enclave, you can still see traces of rock paintings left from Ancestors of San people. Tuli Block is a long, thin stretch of land on the Southern Eastern border or Botswana. It integrates the Mashatu Game Reserve, Tuli Nature Reserve and other smaller reserves.
Redsheild and the surrounding land is the Northern Tuli Game Reserve. This area has fabulous wild terrain where animals thrive. You find Wildebeest, impala, kudu, eland and waterbuck in the area. Following closely behind the game are the predators. Lion, leopard and cheetah hide in the bushes near unsuspecting prey. See elephants wander through the grass and woodland in their families, on their journey to a waterhole. Bird species are abundant and diverse with over 350 species recorded in the reserve. These include cormorants, boulder chat, shrikes, kingfishers and rock thrushes.
In the Motloutse River, the high sands previously concealed diamonds. This was the first real indication of the wealth that was soon to arrive for this country. Nearby the red sand and yellow barked fever trees growing along the banks of the Limpopo River border savannah plains, open marshlands and rocky outcrops.
Depart on a game drive into the bush either in open top 4x4 vehicles or by taking a guided walk. Delve into the African bush to track animals with the footprints of elephants left just minutes before. Go on an evening drive to witness the more shy nocturnal animals such as leopard, caracal, aardwolf and aardvark. If you fancy doing something a little bit more adventurous - take a mountain bike ride on organised tracks to get a real feel for your surroundings.
Game viewing is at its best during the winter months between June and November. This is because the foliage isn't providing the coverage for the game as it might do in other months of the year. The days are warm whilst the evenings may drop to temperatures below 10 degrees Celsius. The wet summer months begin in December, following through to April and amazing birdlife comes with it. This is a time you can watch newborn antelopes learn to take their first tentative steps on the lush green grass.
