For travelers seeking a more intimate and one-on-one bush experience, Mashatu Tented Camp in the Mashatu Game Reserve provides the perfect safari escape.
The tented camp is located forty-five minutes from the main camp. Accommodations consist of eight exclusive tents placed on concrete bases and tucked under the shade of ancient trees. Each tent includes a spacious sleeping area. The tents also feature an en suite bathroom with a private outdoor shower and toilet. A shaded outdoor veranda is the ideal spot to relax and watch the beauties of the bush or enjoy a good book before dinner.
The camp is situated in the Mashatu Game Reserve and comprises some 72,000 acres in the Northern Tuli Game Reserve of Botswana. The reserve lies in the east of Botswana where the great Limpopo and Shashe Rivers converge. This exceptionally diverse landscape includes wide open plains, grassland, riverine forests, rocky hills, marshland, and majestic sandstone ridges. The reserve is home to no less than seven of Africa’s “giants” – the African elephant, the lion, giraffe, the baobab tree, the eland, ostrich, and the kori bustard. There are over 350 species of birds. Nearby, archeologists have discovered evidence of middle and late stone age tools as well as the dinosaur footprints of Vhembe and Sentinel which are estimated to be 50-100 million years old.
