Mashatu was truly outstanding. The best part was the time in the photographic hides and the game drives. The high lights on the game drives were a leopard in a tree with its kill, a cheetah with 4 cubs on a kill, a baby hyena with its baby sitter, and lions on kills twice. On the game drives we saw...

What an amazing place-we loved the tented sight, The staff were the best, the food was plentiful and the game drives were always seeing an amazing array of different animals. Our guide Daniel was superb,very knowledgeable! Top notch operation and really friendly people. The small yellow flowers were blooming everywhere we went--it was so beautiful! The animals loved them!

Where do I begin to review a place like Mashatu? I'm not sure I can do it justice which is quite ironic as you will find out later if you continue to read on......... My husband booked directly as he is working in Botswana for a few months. The response was fast, easy and with all the information we needed....

We stayed in the tented camp, and it was a truly wonderful wildlife/wilderness experience. The staff are tops - always courteous and helpful. If you enjoy being away from commercialised camps with all their bells and whistles, this is definitely the place to stay. Accommodation is very comfortable, and the meals are amazing. There's a small pool for cooling off...

I visited Mashatu in December with a friend. We could not have enjoyed our stay more. From the cable car crossing to great animal sighting, our trip was full of unique adventures. The staff provided first class service, excellent food, answers to all our questions about what we were seeing and doing. Yes, it is hot in December, but the...

We booked Mashatu tented camp through C4 for a wildlife photography workshop.Our photography trainers have been Isak Pretorius and Kyle de Nobrega. Both of them fantastic photographers and excellent guides. The highlight has been the hide at the waterhole. This hide is basically a container dug into the ground so you are basically at level with the surface of the...

My wife, our daughter and I stayed at Mashatu Tent Camp for 3 nights. And there is nothing we could wish for. This is simply top-notch: beautiful and luxurious tents, good food, great sightings and above all lovely personnel. And all that embedded in a nice late colonial style. We have safari experience so we aren't easily impressed anymore. But...

We had an exceptional safari experience at Mashatu over a period of 10 days (6d at the tented camp, 2d at main camp, 2d on a walking safari in the Southern Tuli Game Reserve). Both the tented camp and main camp traverse the same areas for game viewing, and the choice comes down to whether you prefer a tented or...

“The rooms farthest from the camp are the most remote. Nice pool area to cool off, it can get very hot this time of year.”

“Since all the tents have a view, I'd probably suggest perhaps getting a tent closer to the bar so it's not so far to walk in the heat.”
