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'll be offered morning, afternoon and night game drives in open 4x4 vehicles. There will also be opportunities mountain biking, horse riding (experienced riders only) and guided walks. There are many historical and archaeological sites in the area which you can visit during your stay.

Mashatu Tented Camp is in the remote northern part of the reserve and has 8 en-suite comfortable tents with outdoor showers and flush toilets. There is an open sided thatched deck with eating and sitting areas and a boma with a camp fire for outdoor dining. The plunge pool is a great asset, too. A viewing hide overlooks the waterhole, where you should get excellent animals and bird sightings and stunning photographs.


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. 

Rooms: There are 8 walk-in, insect proof guest tents, large enough for 2 twin beds and a dressing table. 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’s a porcelain hand basin and a flush toilet. At the front of the tent there are 2 chairs and a small table. 

Activities: 4x4 morning, afternoon and night game drives with a guide and spotter, guided nature walks and bird watching are supplemented by horse and mountain bike riding and wildlife watching and photography from hides. You can visit archaeological sites and a local school. 

Facilities: There’s 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 no internet access.
