Mashatu Main Camp provides the perfect base camp for safari adventures in the Mashatu Game Reserve. Rustic luxury characterises Main Camp, with a comfortable wilderness feeling allowing you to really connect with the natural surroundings while maintaining your creature comforts.

14 luxury and spacious suites are furnished in a traditional safari lodge style and with a double bed, large single bed and separate seating area, the suites are ideal for families. Beautiful black and white photographic prints of Mashatu's wildlife adorn the walls reminding you of the centrality of your location to one of the best game viewing spots in the world. The wooden ceilings and stone floors create a homestead vibe, while the spacious showers and baths are very luxurious.

The bar and leisure area in the main lodge is on a raised platform overlooking a perennial waterhole; a key location for game in the typically dry Tuli Block. Meals are served here with fantastic bush views and the cuisine is typically Botswanan, featuring homemade breads, fresh fruit and veg, and lots of game meat.

Of course the major activity here is wildlife spotting on game drives and bush walks, and with Mashatu home to huge herds of elephant, lion, cheetah, wild dog and leopard (among more) guests will not be disappointed. For the more adventurous guests mountain bike or horse safaris are a really unique and exciting alternative. The camp also offers cultural excursions to Mmamagwa Rock & Cecil Rhode's Baobab, which both offer incredibly interesting history and amazing views. The amazing geological formations of Solomon's Wall and Leeu Kop also make great visits. For longer stays the Wilderness Trails are a fantastic and memorable activity. Over the course of a one to three night walking safari guests will stay in mobile tented bush camps and get a true wilderness experience.

For kids the 'Discovery Room' is a real highlight. This museum of all things Masahatu, past and present, features everything from fish aquaria, Boer artefacts, archaeological finds and lots of conservation research and also offers a specialised children's programme.

Why We Love It

There are ground level photographic hides at the waterhole which provide the perfect spots to capture some fantastic wildlife shots.
