Mashatu Tent Camp is safari rustic in character and reminds one of an authentic African experience. The large, canvas tents are raised, insect-proofed, have 2 comfortable beds and each has an en-suite shower and W.C. facility. Each tent has electricity and 2 standing fans. Meals are enjoyed on the open-sided thatch deck and the traditional boma welcomes guests for intimate campfire dinners. This camp also contains a very welcome plunge pool and hide from where guests can spend their time viewing animals between safaris.

When you visit Botswana, you immediately think of Savuti, Moremi, the Okavango. And yet there is a marvelous place somewhat forgotten by tourists, Tuli Block, in the far south-east of Botswana. The landscapes are magnificent, majestic trees, rocky ground. I stayed 3 nights at Mashatu Tent Camp and had a fantastic time. The guides are very professional, you are almost guaranteed to see leopards, lions. There is abundant wildlife. The staff are adorable. The tents are very nice and the food delicious. For sure, I would come back to this fabulous place!

I have to say that the wildlife viewing was just superb. I saw four different leopards in one day, as well as lions every day. I also managed to see two cheetahs. The elephant viewing was also excellent. I even saw bat-eared foxes, which are one of my favorite mammals.

The staff was friendly and so helpful. The food was just yummy. I was given a choice at every meal.

The tents were comfortable and roomy. However, they become a bit hot at midday. I will be returning to Mashatsu. I also wish that more travel agents will offer the Masatsu camp as an option.

Was in March 2022 in tented camp on a photograph trip. The camp was very nice, clean, good food, comfortable and very nice atmosphere. The reserve and drives were great. Being used to Sabi Sands with a lot of leopard sightings I can fairly say that the leopard density in this reserve is at least as good as in Sabi Sand. In one drive we spotted 3 different adult leopards in 200 meters...... They don't have rhino's and buffalo's but the lack of that is made up for by beautiful scenery and stunning landscape with many diverse eco systems so great photographic opportunities. The sight of the week was a cheetah mother with 5 subadult cubs. Unbelieveble that mother cheetah is bringing so many cubs hopefully to adulthood. The drives are not time bound so if you have a special sighting you can stay out longer. We also did the Mashatu hide, a sea container digged in, in front of a water hole. Being able to photograph herds of elephants drinking with a low angle at close range was also very very special. So I can recommend this game reserve and if you don't like tents they also have main camp and villas were you can book.

The tents are small and very basic, which does not match the self-description - and the prize. The staff limited its efforts to the minimum, the low food quality matches the basic accomodation. The experience of great predator viewings was ruined by the poor performance of the guides and the hazards to which we were exposed in this safari camp: It starts with the unroofed safari cars, which are not used anywhere else in Botswana. We suffered from a sunstroke being exposed to the direct sun during the whole safari tours. To make it worse, we had to drive 1 hour from the airstrip to this camp without protection in the sun; of course a hat is not sufficient. For our return to the airstrip we complained at our local travel agent, so she had to provide us with a roofed car that came from the South African side. The rangers do not respect the wildlife; several times they drove in high speed very close towards elephants; one even insisted on the sundowner stop about 200 m away from two lionesses. Of course, we refused to leave the car. Our stay at this place was very disappointing and scary.

Response from MashatuManagement, Owner at Mashatu Tent Camp
Responded 13 Nov 2014
We are very sorry to read this disappointing review on Tented Camp, some of which requires follow up and some which requires clarification: 1. Mashatu Tent Camp is situated on privately owned reserve in Botswana and open game drive vehicles are permitted on private land as we are not constrained by the limitations of national park concessions in Botswana. This is a unique selling point. Clients come to Mashatu for our open vehicle safaris. Any interrogation of Tent Camp on TripAdvisor or our website will highlight the fact that we only have open vehicles on safari. 2. We do not have canopies for a very good reason being the fact that they limit both manoeuvrability in our relatively dense riparian vegetation, where most of our leopard viewing takes place and also prevents guests in the vehicle to comfortably view and/or photograph leopard perched high in the branches of trees, which is a regular occurrence on Mashatu. 3. October/November of each year are the hottest months before the summer rains arrive. Our maximums are over 37C (99F) for both months. Our website does note this. It is also a hot and dry time of the year in this semi-desert landscape but the viewing is, as you alluded to, always excellent. 4. Mashatu Tent Camp is, by its very nature, rustic and we pride ourselves on the intimacy of this environment whilst staying in the camp. It is one of the attractions of staying close to nature and it is highlighted in our opening description on TripAdvisor for Mashatu Tent Camp. 5. The camp had a complete refurbishment this year and this was completed in April 2014. We upgraded all aspects of the camp but we intentionally did not change the ambience and atmosphere in order to retain the rustic charm. 6. We are following up on the comments about your guide and the food but as this is an incognito review, we are unable to address this with you so that we can remedy it. Notwithstanding this, three of the guides at Tent Camp have all been with us for over 12 years and are some of our most senior guides at Mashatu. They know the reserve, they know the wildlife and seldom does a day go by when these guides are not requested by returning guests. I am very disappointed with regards to this review and, as management, I would like to follow up with the reviewer concerned. I can be contacted via our website.

The musty military tents are very much run down, I guess about 20 years old; the pool was very dirty during our whole stay of three days. The staff is very lazy, gives no explanations during the drives; the sit together during the meals, apart from the guests; all requests - even like for herbal tea instead of black tea - are ignored. But the worst was the lack of suitable safari cars: The cars of the tented camp as well as the main camp completely don't have a roof! From the airstrip you have to drive for one hour in the heat of the day in the strong sun exposure to the camp. Nobody cares. All the tours are done in these old cars as well. We have been in about 25 safari lodges in Africa already, but we have never experienced such a catastrophe.

We stayed here from 21 July - 27 July (6 nights) and had a tremendous experience. We booked through Steppes Travel in England and they organised the pick-up at Jo'burg Airport, where we met the other couple who were going to be on the trip with us (the maximum number Steppes will take is 7, but this time there were just the 4 of us). We then had the 6 hour road journey to Botswana. Sounds bad but really it was fine! With our flight getting in at just after 7am and a stop for lunch, plus getting through customs at the Botswana border, where we were met by a ranger from Mashatu, we reached the camp around 3.30pm and after drinks and being shown our tent, we headed off on our first shorter-than-normal game drive. With there only being 4 of us on the trip, we always had the vehicle to ourselves, which was great. We saw giraffe, lilac breasted roller, Egyptian geese and plovers and stopped at a hyena den to watch the adults and pups - fascinating.

Back to camp for dinner, which was in the outside boma with a roaring fire. Before dinner we met in the lounge area, where there is a small bar and you could order whatever you wanted to drink. Then we were accompanied down to the boma. There was always a vegetarian option and dinner was served buffet style so you could choose what you wanted. I wouldn't say it was gourmet food, but good, wholesome cooking, with a lovely soup starter (different every night), main course, dessert and tea or coffee. You could buy wine or beer if you wished, or have the water provided (which is perfectly fine to drink).

Over the next week we saw an amazing number of elephant, herds of giraffe with babies, baboons, lions and cubs feeding on an eland, cheetah with cubs, impala, kudu, eland, steenbok, saddle billed storks, african fish eagle, beeaters, hammerkop, zebra, ostrich, vervet monkeys, wildebeest, warthog, jackal, eagle owl, parrot, gennet, kori bustard and much more - and, best of all, we saw SIX leopards! There are very few vehicles on the reserve - we only saw a couple from our camp and the maximum allowed to view anything such as lions feeding is 3 vehicles. Most times, it was just our vehicle. This makes it a much more intimate experience.

Morning game drives are up at 6am (they wake you up) and out at 6.30am in an open topped Toyota Land Cruiser, after coffee and cereal, and then back around 10.30 - 11am for brunch in the open-sided eating and relaxing area, where there is fruit, cooked breakfast, toast, jams etc, in a buffet for you to choose. You are then free to relax in your tent, at the pool or at the hide overlooking the waterhole. The afternoon drive is at 3.30pm and back around 7.30ish (it gets dark shortly after 6pm and the light drops quickly, so you have at least an hour of a night game drive thrown in). This holiday is a relaxing, close to nature experience - no TV or entertainment, no mobile phones or internet and no kids under 12! It's game drives, good food, lovely people! Our ranger, Dan, was fantastic. He has worked at Mashatu for many years and he knows so much. He's a great driver and tracker and very patient when you want just another photo! He has a great sense of humour and really helped to make this a fantastic trip. Our spotter, who sat in the back of the vehicle, was also great (his 'name' was Commander). Ask for Dan as your ranger before you go and you just might be lucky. Mind you, I'm sure all the rangers are great! I should also say that I have a problematic knee and was a little concerned about climbing up into the vehicle - I needn't have worried as there are 'aeroplane steps' wheeled over to allow you to easily climb up into even the back row of the land cruiser and the same for getting down. Of course, you don't have these when in the bush, but I was able to manage with the iron ladder which the vehicle carries with it. The rangers are very helpful and make sure you are OK.

In July and August (their winter) it is VERY cold at night and especially in the morning. You get a lovely hot water bottle in your bed (all tents have twin beds close together) and also on the morning game drive. You also have blankets on the game drives. You need to take a woolly or fleecy hat that won't blow off, gloves, scarf, warm coat, long trousers, study shoes and lots of layers that you can gradually take off as the morning progresses, or put on as the evening gets cooler, plus a bag to carry them in. You don't need any 'fancy' clothes - no-one dresses up for dinner. It's all about relaxing, being comfortable and seeing wildlife. The small pool is too cold in July/Aug to swim (dangling our feet in was as far as we got!). It is around 25C during the day, so you need shorts and tops for between game drives but long sleeves and trousers for the drives themselves (and best in muted colours) and for the boma. We did lie at the pool reading one day but many folk take the opportunity to have a nap after brunch. Bring a Kindle or some books, or your ipad to use between brunch and the afternoon game drive. We also brought a small laptop to transfer our photos on to after each game drive. We took thousands! To get really good photos, you need an SLR camera with up to 400mm lens and monopod (tripods aren't any use in the vehicle) although I often used my 24-105mm lens, but you will also gets lots of nice images with a compact camera with a zoom lens in it.

The tents are very well appointed (although hanging space is limited) with plenty of drawers, mirror and an outside bathroom, open to the stars, with a fantastic shower. You can't leave anything out there, except towels, as the squirrels or monkeys will pinch it! There are electric lights, hairdryer, torch, mosquito repellent, candles, toiletries and towels (plus towels at the pool) and there is also a hooter if you feel you are in danger - the camp is open and animals do pass through. You are accompanied to your tent each evening by a ranger, for your safety. There is an English electric socket, an African one and a two pin one. We took an adapter so that we could use two sockets to recharge camera batteries. The tents have proper lockable doors and you can put things in the safe at reception as you won't need any money while you're there - you get a bill at the end of your stay (you also need some dollars or S African Rand for end of stay tips - there is a box in reception for general staff and an envelope for your ranger and one for your tracker, in which you put the tip and give to them yourself). You don't ever need Botswana money. Outside your tent are two chairs and a table, on a patio. Ours overlooked the dry river bed and was a very pleasant place to read. We had very little bother with insects - we each got a couple of very minor bites (not half as bad as bites we have had at home in the garden!) - and we did take a course of malaria tablets (Malarone) just in case, which you start a couple of days before you leave and complete once you're back home.

You can ask your ranger to take you to the Main Camp to visit the Curio Shop - that will be your only opportunity to buy any souvenirs as there is no shop at tented camp. Dan took us up at the start of our Day 4 afternoon game drive and we all found things to buy and could pay in Rand, Dollars or by card. It was also nice to see Main Camp - more luxurious and with a computer and internet connection - but we all agreed that tented camp was the one for us. It's more rustic but lovely and closer to the wildlife - and cheaper, but with exactly the same game drives!!

The holiday we booked through Steppes Travel was called 'Botswana Elephant and Predator Research Safari' and this meant that we got the following itinerary (sent to us before the trip with lost of useful info and followed up with phone contact) - pm game drive on arrival day (Sun), am game drive and pm Predator drive on Mon, am Ivory Drive and pm Predator drive on Tue, am in the underground hide and pm game drive on Wed, am in the underground hide and pm game drive on Thu, am bush walk and pm game drive on Fri and am game drive after full breakfast and on the way to the border at Botswana on Sat am.

On the predator drives we were accompanied by Aliene Brassine, who is conducting Cheetah research at Mashatu. This was fascinating, as she told us all about her work (details on Mashatu website) and we tracked a cheetah, who has a collar on for the period of the research, and has 3 cubs. On the Ivory drive we were accompanied by Bruce Page, a renowned elephant researcher who told us so much, not just about elephants but also about the reserve in general. In the underground hide we were accompanied by Mike Dexter, the professional photographer who works for C4 Images and Safaris, who own the hide - this is a fabulous experience, not to be missed. The hide is sunk into the ground and the viewing window is at ground level - elephants are so close you can practically touch them! Finally, we were taken on the bush walk by Bellamy, a ranger from the Main Camp and we walked for around 3 miles through the bush, with him showing us tracks and stalking animals. Tremendous!

Just a word about comfort stops on the 4 hour drives or in the hide - these are no problem as there are breaks built in for coffee/tea (am) or sundowners (pm) where you can pop behind a bush and you can always ask the ranger to find a suitable stopping place at other times. They understand totally and there is no difficulty. We also did make sure that we nipped into the loo just before we left for each drive, and that we didn't drink too much before a drive!!

Sorry for the length of this review, but I wanted to get as much in as possible! This is a holiday not to be missed. We have been on safaris before and always had a great time - but this was something else. There are no hippo, rhino or buffalo, but that didn't matter. We had also only stayed 2 or 3 nights on previous trips and in more expensive safari lodges. This was definitely better - less expensive per night and a chance to really see the reserve and its wildlife properly. I want to go back.......

(NB We also stayed a couple of nights at Bambelela nr Bela Bela on the way back to Jo-burg - it's a vervet monkey rehab centre where they help injured and ex pet monkeys and other animals to recover and get back to the wild. They have 3 lovely chalets - great way to finish a 10 day holiday. They do transfers back to the airport so no car hire needed.)

We recently returned from a vacation in southern Africa. We spent four nights at Mashatu Tented Camp and it was fantastic. The staff is delightful - from the camp managers to the backroom staff to the guides (rangers). We see incredible amounts of game - leopards, lions, and elephants everyday. Cheetahs almost every day. Lots of giraffes, antelope, and zebras... and the staff all can identify birds by sight and call.

The camp itself was ideal for us. Comfortable but rustic. The camp is open - animals come and go. The food is delicious.

I recommend this place to anyone. If you are looking for a more luxurious (air conditioning, dressing up for dinner) experience, I would recommend the Mashatu Main Camp.

Hi Shirley. Forgive the delay in replying but I have been travelling. October is one of the driest months and the animals tent to congregate along the rivers. But it can also be hot as it is ahead of the arrival of the rains. The predator viewing at Mashatu is always excellent but because of the dry season, vegetation is really limited meaning great sightings.

Hi Shirley, there are flights on a Sunday and a Thursday from Lanseria Airport in Johannesburg to Mashatu. The Airline is a service called Angel Gabriel. Complimentary road transfers are offered from OR Tambo International to Lanseria. Please contact Mashatu directly if you need more detail.

Hi. Poor weather can impact on flights but seldom do we see this but it can happen. Similarly the occasional 20 year floods can impact on roads. In both of these instances, it is invariably in our wet months of January or February.
