Meanwhile, Molema Bush Camp sits on privately owned land, adjacent to the Northern Tuli Game Reserve.

In the Heart of Botswana's Tuli Block Within the enchanting Tuli block of Botswana, unique sandstone outcrops dominate the landscape. Amidst these geological wonders rests the opulent Tuli Safari Lodge, nestled along the banks of the Limpopo River. Our discerning guests enjoy accommodations in eight lavish suites. These suites are categorized into "5 ele" and "4 ele" tiers, both boasting top-tier amenities such as double/twin beds, en suite bathrooms, inviting indoor and outdoor seating areas, and convenient tea/coffee-making facilities. Notably, the "5 ele" suites offer an even more secluded and spacious experience.

At the distinguished Tuli Safari Lodge, hospitality is etched into unforgettable memories. Mealtime harmonizes with our guests' activities, aligning with early morning and evening guided game drives. In between, guests can bask in the refreshing embrace of the swimming pool or observe the avian and wildlife wonders in close proximity to the lodge. Expanding horizons, the Tuli Safari Lodge orchestrates supplementary activities (some possibly incurring an additional charge), encompassing guided walks, tranquil hours at game hides within the Nature Reserve (overnight stays included), exhilarating horseback rides, and insightful visits to the community projects within the villages of Motlabaneng or Lentswe-le-Moriti.
