The Foundation facilitates a broad range of research undertaken on Tswalu Kalahari Reserve. Its mission is to promote conservation, and strengthen an understanding of the semi-arid savanna biome within the southern Kalahari. As a repository for information and data collected, the Foundation aims to strengthen species and ecological research capacity within South Africa while promoting the education of people in the region. The Foundation also presents opportunities for guests to interact with researchers in the field, while providing Tswalu Kalahari Reserve with data for management purposes. The Foundation is a crucial component of the Oppenheimer Family’s vision to conserve the Kalahari by restoring the natural environment, re-establishing biological diversity and maintaining the natural ecological processes of the Kalahari.
