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.

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.

8 private tents tucked under branches of enormous trees which are accessed via dimly lit, meandering pathways. They are spacious and comfortable and large enough to stretch in. A person who is 6ft tall could stand in the tent very comfortably. Each tent has its own private outdoor en-suite facilities which are way way fancier than you'd expect, and include WC and a shower with hot/cold water. We were each also presented with a stainless steel, Mashatu Camp logoed, water bottle with our names labeled onto our very own bottle. During the day or night, you could expect any number of lively not-so-welcome visitors so guests are advised to keep tent doors closed at all times. We saw quite a few steenbucks and an entire family of vervet monkeys decided to picnic on our patio. The camp does not allow children below the age of 12 as guests in these camps unless the entire lodge is booked out by one group as they offer no childcaring facilities. Dinner is served under starlight in a mock-traditional open-air boma. I have to compliment the chef and the kitchen staff. As soon as the chef saw my husband & I, he knew we would need chillies and without question already presented a bowl of freshly crushed chillies on the buffet table. These small gestures were the most meaningful to me. The food was unlike any hotel restaurant food I've ever had before. We do not eat red meat so when we book our accommodations, we usually note that we prefer chicken & seafood. Again, the kitchen staff delivered and I can not fault a single crumb. We were all so well fed, I was never once given an opportunity to think I was hungry. This camp is notorious for their Lemon Meringue Tart and a Chicken Pot Pie. Now I can not attest for the tart but I can for the pie I had that morning and it was mouthwatering. Overall, the camp was beautiful even though I barely spent any time there as we were on game drives for about 8 hours of the day and the sleep I had out in the bush was the soundest and most restful I've ever experienced.

We visited the Mashatu Tent Camp in April 2019. It was our second visit to Mashatu (previous visit was at the Main Lodge, 2012). There is a reason we specifically chose to add Mashatu to our return trip to Botswana: this place is AMAZING. We come for the animals, but the people/staff make your stay truly extraordinary. Our guides (Jakes & Ephraim (sp?)) were both excellent, and we thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with them. They were professional, knowledgeable, and have a great sense for knowing what guests want to see, how to find it, and also importantly - knowing how to position the vehicle so you can get amazing photographs. The game was plentiful, and we were fortunate to be able to see everything we had hoped to see. All of the staff was wonderful, and the food was fantastic. For me personally, I found the tent camp to be a bit more "rustic" than I would prefer. It was quite warm at night during our stay, and there is no AC in the tents. I would probably choose the Main Lodge for a future visit, only for the simple reason that it has some extra amenities, like the AC and an indoor shower/toiler, that the tent camp does not have. Those are outside at the tent camps, and you are truly one with nature when using the facilities! But that is just a personal preference. This place is amazing, and we would highly recommend it to anyone looking to enjoy a safari experience.

Dear Sir/Ma’am Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so happy that you decided to return to Mashatu and visit us again. Agreed, Mashatu really does have spectacular game viewing and the in-camp experience is just the cherry on the top. We are glad you’ve experienced both camps and have decided which one you will return to one day. The Tent Camp is a bit more of an authentic safari experience and it’s just a matter of preference for guests. But with the new Mashatu Euphorbia Villas opening in 2020, you are now spoilt for choice. Thank you again for your review and we hope to welcome you back to Mashatu soon. Best wishes The Mashatu Team

We spent 4 fantastic days in the Bush. It was incredibly hot, which was unusual for the season. Thus most of the animals were found at the waterholes. And here the hides of Mashatu were THE experience. Seeing the animals so close up, was amazing. And then seeing their leopards and cheetahs in action, made the stay a fantastic experience. Knowledgeable game rangers and lovely staff, make it just wonderful. We will be back.
