Welcome to Tolankwe
Tolankwe comes from the word “thlola” and “nkwe”, and changed slightly by spelling due to pronunciation to its current name. This name was given around 1950 due to the natural waterhole and then later first borehole for Twana people and their Cattle in this Area. Ox wagon transporters in this part of the Kalahari also frequented the waterhole. Thlola means to “Remain for a specified time” or “to express the frequency of an action e.g. always, visit lasting, spy, sojourn.” Leopard frequent this area due to the thick bush and trees, and the availability of food and water. “Rest place of the Leopard” as it translates today is still very apt and frequent visits and stays by both male and female leopards are confirmed by sightings. The Tolankwe Conservancy was borne out of love for nature. Relaxing and getting close to nature, with no outside interference is the essence of the conservancy. A piece of the African bush is yours exclusively, for your duration of stay, and your lifetime memories.
