I continue to visit this marvellous place where the welcome back is genuine and the service and game viewing is some of the best in Africa. I expect to return almost each year until I can no longer climb into the vehicles.

We loved every aspect Mashatu had to offer: location, facilities, atmosphere, staff, food, drink, guides, game viewing, boma-dining...everything about it. Anyone contemplating a safari in Botswana would be wise to look into this one-of-a-kind camp!

You can't drive on your own in Mashatu. When placing a reservation you will be picked up at the boarder to South Africa. Of course the reservation will include the accommodation, full board and game drives.
