Mashatu Tented Camp

Tuli Block

Rating: Deluxe    

Mashatu Tented Camp overview

Mashatu Game Reserve is in the Tuli Block in the remote eastern corner of Botswana bordering South Africa, It's a region of diverse habitats that shelters a wide range of wildlife including herds of elephant, giraffes, eland, lion, leopard and cheetah amongst many others as well as more than 350 species of birds.

You are offered morning, afternoon and night game drives in open 4x4 vehicles. There are also be opportunities mountain biking, horse riding (experienced riders only),  guided walks and to watch wildlife at close quarters from viewing hides and get some memorable photographs. 

The camp has eight en-suite comfortable tents with outdoor bucket showers, hand basins and flush toilets, all discreetly screened for privacy. Bedrooms are cooled by freestanding fans and have gauze windows which admit natural daylight and keep out unwanted guests. With a wardrobe, chest of drawers and bedside tables there's ample storage space.   

Communal areas include an open sided thatched lounge deck with armchairs, sofas and coffee tables, and a boma with a camp fire for outdoor dining by the waterhole. The plunge pool is a great asset, too. 


Open: Mashatu Tented Camp is open all year.  

Location: Mashatu Tented Camp is in northern part of Mashatu Private Game Reserve in the Tuli Block in eastern Botswana, near the borders with South Africa and Zimbabwe. It is a 30-minute drive from Mashatu Main Camp. There are regular flights from Maun and Johannesburg.

Rooms: There are eight walk-in, insect proof guest tents, a mix of twins and doubles, with a wardrobe, dressing table and bedside tables. They are set on concrete platforms. Each is equipped with fans to keep them cool, battery charging points and a supply of drinking water. The en-suite hot water shower is suspended from a tree, open to the sky but screened for privacy and there is a porcelain hand basin and a flush toilet. At the front of the tent the shaded veranda has two chairs. 

Activities: 4x4 morning, afternoon and night game drives with a guide and spotter, guided nature walks and bird watching are supplemented by horse (experienced riders only) and mountain bike riding and wildlife watching and photography from hides.  

Facilities: There is a thatched lounge and dining tent plus an atmospheric boma by the floodlit waterhole, often used for dinner by the light of the camp fire. A hide is positioned nearby and gives you great views of wildlife by the waterhole. The plunge pool is a great way to cool off in hot weather.

Dining: Most meals are eaten together in the dining tent or the boma. 

Children aged 12 years and over are welcome. 

This is a malaria area. 

Communication: There is free Wi-Fi in some communal areas.
