The Tuli Block and eastern Botswana have a real feel of undiscovered Africa about them. The game becomes more plentiful the farther north you travel within the Tuli Block (about 220 mi/350 km northeast of Gaborone).
The Northern Tuli Game Reserve boasts the largest population of elephant on privately owned land anywhere in the world. The North East Tuli Game Reserve incorporates several privately owned reserves.
Although night game drives are not permitted in Botswana's national parks, they are one of the main attractions of the private game reserves in the Tuli Block. Such nocturnal animals as leopard, lynx, genet, spring hare, porcupine, aardwolf and aardvark can be seen on the after-dark drives.
Accommodations range from luxurious lodges to rustic, self-catering motels and are set in pristine woodlands or overlooking a river. Most lodges offer game and nature walks as well as horse trails and visits to little-known historical sites.
