Location: The Tuli Block is situated in the remote eastern corner of Botswana, with Zimbabwe to the north and South Africa, across the Limpopo River, to the south.
The area comprises a diverse wilderness of savannah, riverine forests, marshland, open plains and rocky outrops. Wildlife is abundant,
including large herds of elephant. Predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah, and hyena are attracted by the antelope that
migrate through the area, while for bird-watchers, more than 350 species of birds have been identified.
