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 during the heat of the day. Justice, who was our Ranger, and his tracker are very competent and highly knowledgeable about the wildlife and the area. Justice blew me away with his skills at negotiating some extremely rough terrain. If you really hate rough roads, perhaps you'd want to reconsider your choice to go to Mashatu, but to me it was simply part of the whole experience. The wildlife sightings and photographic opportunities were worth every bump, dip, rock or steep, deep river bed we had to traverse to get there. With Justice's driving skills and experience I always felt we were safe and in good hands. As a photographer, the hide overlooking the water hole at eye-level is fantastic. Mashatu in general, and staying at the tented camp, stands out as the highlight of the 3 game reserves we visited during that trip. Given the opportunity, I would jump at a chance to stay there again. I loved every minute of it.

Room Tip: 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.

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 greenness of the park was change from the browns of Kruger. We still had great sightings and photo opportunities. Food was fresh, plentiful, and tasty. The staff was on hand to provide any service requested. I'd love to go again and can recommend it to friends.

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 waterhole. That gives you a very interesting perspective for your photography.
With the advice from Isak and Kyle you easily manage to get to own photos at par with the photos of major wildlife magazines.
Mashatu Tent Camp was just fantastic. Wildlife starts right at the steps of your tent, where we have been visited by Warthogs and a variety of antelopes.
The staff was super friendly and very, very helpful. It started right at the border post Pontdrift. They pick you up offering you a bottle of water and you feel immediately comfortable.
To cut a long story short - we would love to go there again some time.

Room Tip: We had tent no 1 close to the Lapa and still a nice view.

Mashatu tent camps rooms are very comfortable, well appointed outdoor shower, Fans, Jug of water which stayed ice cold all day. Only complaint would be that they don't have Australian three pin power in there power board. Meals from Breakfast to dinner are simply amazing. I had told the chef upon arrival that I didn't like chilli or spices, and some meals were specially cooked for me , minus the chilli etc. Thank you.
Well stocked bar and wi fi in lodge lounge was good, Spectacular wildlife sightings to be seen around Mashatu area with talented guides and drivers to get you to the right spot. Roads are very rough around lodge.

Stayed: September 2016

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 this lodge entered the top of our charts immediately. We will certainly go back.
