Northern Tuli Game Reserve Botswana
Private house for your exclusive use
The Northern Tuli Game Reserve (Notugre) forms the core component of Botswana’s section of the multinational cross border protected areas that make up the Greater Mapungubwe Transfrontier Conservation Area (TFCA).
For any nature and wildlife enthusiast this presents a very unique offering:
- Your own private house, situated on a well-established private freehold property.
- You have the freedom to traverse over some 5,000 hectares of land, where you can immerse yourself in the sense of raw wilderness that this part of the Tuli Block is so well known for.
- An established property that is a member of Notugre and in turn a part of the TFCA, provides you with multiple layers of sound conservation structures.
- Additionally, Botswana is rated as one of the most stable countries in Africa, so you can take real comfort in the security of your investment.
The Northern Tuli Game Reserve (Notugre) covers some 70,000 Hectares and is renowned for its Tuli elephants, the largest elephant population on private land in Africa. The region is aptly named “The Land of Giants.”
This large expanse of unfenced and untouched wilderness, together with its clean air and dazzling night skies are food for the soul.

The Private house on offer
The property is held by way of a long established and formally registered corporate structure. Shareholding ownership is scarce and highly valued; Since formation of the private company in 1981, one original founder is still involved and over 80% of the shareholders have held their respective ownership for 20 years or longer.
The company has only 15 shareholders. The share that is now on offer is unique in that it is only one of only two shares that enjoy the exclusivity of use of their own private dwelling on the property. The other shareholders may only use the shared lodge facility, see next section.

The shared lodge / shareholders
All shareholders may use the shared lodge facility on the property. It is for shareholder use only and is not open to commercial bookings.
The lodge comprises 7 separate chalets with central kitchen, dining and entertainment areas. There is also a large swimming pool that offers essential relief from the summer heat.
The shareholders are mainly internationally based, most of whom only visit for an annual vacation, so the lodge occupancies are low. Subject to the 90 day limit Botswana applies to non residents, there is no limit on your usage.
Via the strong shareholders agreement, sensible rules apply to all shareholders. The operations and maintenance of the lodge is funded by way of an annual levy, currently approximately $10,500 per year.
The shareholders have a major focus on conservation and being as sustainable as possible, this includes a significant involvement in supporting the local neighbouring communities.

By Air – Within Notugre lies the Limpopo Valley Airfield, an international airport offering customs and immigration facilities.
