Tuludi: Our full report
Tuludi opened in July 2019, and stands in the 200,000 hectare Khwai Private Reserve, bordering Botswana's ...... Moremi Game Reserve to the south, and Chobe National Park to the east. Floodplains dotted with riverine forests stretch as far as the eye can see: the camp is set to have the most spectacular views.
We visited Tuludi in Mach 2019 when it was just a building site, with hard work in progress.
The location is breathtaking. Picture wide-open seasonal floodplains, with a permanent waterhole out front, and tall riverine forests in the background. We understand the owners wanted to "capture the magic of being enfolded in nature and the serenity and space that comes with it".
Tuludi has seven spacious tree-house style suites, 60 square metres in size, with high, pitched canvas roofs, shaded by giant leadwood trees. We believe the interiors are a sophisticated mix of contemporary design with traditional décor, lots of airy spaces, dotted with maps, botanicals and treasures from around the area. Each suite has a separate dressing and sleeping area, an en-suite bathroom, indoor and outdoor showers, a bathtub, an outdoor sunken seating area and a private plunge pool.
Wooden boardwalks wind through the leadwood trees to connect the suites to the main area. There are lots of quite corners to relax, including a spacious lounge, indoor dining room leading outside to an expansive deck, a bar (which from what we saw during the building stages, has a very creative mosaic design), a swimming pool and a treehouse library, elevated four metres high - and with a slide!? Watch this space.
New for 2021 is Tuludi’s adventurous and romantic Sky Suite - set on a raised platform, amongst the trees, overlooking a hippo pool. Enjoy a sundowner on your private deck and then a gourmet picnic dinner beside the campfire. Spend the night under a canopy of stars, sleeping in a comfortable king-size bed whilst listening to the sounds and smells of nature.
Activities on offer will include game drives, walking safaris and water-based game viewing in mokoros - water levels are permitting.
When we visited the building site in March 2019 we absolutely loved what we saw. Tuludi is going to be beautiful, offering stunning Okavango Delta scenery and luxury accommodation, and if it's anything like its sister camps Sable Alley and Hyena Pan, the staff will be friendly and attentive, and guides and camp management will be very good too.
We have high hopes for it doing well in the future - so watch this space.
