Tuli Block is about 350 km long, stretching from the Northeast corner of Botswana where the Shashe and the Limpopo Rivers meet, right down to the Notwane River north of Olifants Drift in the South West. The Tuli Block consists mainly of privately owned farms, but the eastern section up to and including Redshield has been declared a game reserve, known as the Norther Tuli Game Reserve. Redshield is the westernmost farm included in this reserve. The entire conservancy area, including the adjacent safari area bordering the Tuli Circle, comprises about 80,000 hectares.
The Tuli Block is quite different from anywhere else in Botswana. It is generally referred to as the Hardveld because of the rocky outcrops and the abundance of rocks, stones and pebbles of all shapes and sizes. There is also a network of dry riverbeds and the larger rivers sport gigantic trees along their edges. The Tuli Block is occupied by private game farms, private game reserves and lodges. One of its main attractions is that it is only 5 1/2 hours drive from Johannesburg and the game is plentiful ...an ideal weekend getaway.
