Everything you want to know

Can I bring my family to Tutwa?  

The nature and layout of Tutwa does not lend itself to relaxing holidays with children under the age of 10. Our sister property, Dundi Lodge welcomes children  – we will gladly assist you with details and to make a reservation.

Is the Northern Cape a malaria-free region?  

Yes it is,  and no specific precautionary measures are necessary.  We do provide insect repellant for your comfort during your stay.

What clothing will I need on my safari to Tutwa?  

We suggest light and comfortable clothing which can be worn in layers.  Good walking shoes, a bathing costume, hat and sunglasses are a must. Tutwa provides  sun protection cream in your suites; however we recommend bringing your own facial sun cream. In winter the nights can be really cold and you will need a jacket;  blankets and ponchos are provided on game drives

Does Tutwa have  the spectacular flowers seen elsewhere in the Northern Cape?  

Although less prolific, what does bloom in the Green Kalahari when there are good spring rains, is highly unusual, unique and worth the trip.

What time is Check-in? And Check-out?  

Check-in is from 14:00 and check-out by 11:00
