Botswana's 'true wilderness' Northern Tuli Game Reserve is often missed off the Botswana itinerary because, in comparison to other national parks, it has been notoriously difficult to get to.
Close to the border with South Africa, Tuli has always combined well with the Pafuri region of the Kruger National Park, which is just 3 hours away by road. It wasn't until recently that the Limpopo Valley Air Taxi was introduced between Johannesburg and Tuli, reducing the journey time to Tuli to an hour.
As an extension to the Johannesburg route, in June 2017 further routes in and out of Limpopo Valley Airfield were introduced meaning that Tuli is now connected to Maun (2 hours) for the Okavango, Kasane (1hr 30) for Victoria Falls and Kruger via Polokwane (2 hours). To add to this, in 2018 an additional route will link Tuli to Vilanculos, Mozambique's renowned beach destination in just 2 hours.
