The Tuli Block is situated in the eastern corner of Botswana, bordering Zimbabwe to the north and South Africa to the south.
Although not as well-known as Botswana's Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park, the area comprises a diverse wilderness of savannah,
riverine forests, marshland, open plains and rocky outrops.
There is abundant wildlife and the area is known for its large herds of elephants. Predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah, and hyena are attracted by large numbers of migrating wildebeest, kudu, eland, and impala.
More than 350 species of birds have been recorded in the Tuli region.
