Mashatu sits within the Tuli Block in a nature reserve at the remote eastern corner of Botswana bordering South Africa, where the Limpopo and Shashe rivers meet. The diverse range of habitats in this area include savannah, riverine forests, marshlands, open plains and sandstone outcrops. Resident wildlife includes huge herds of elephant, lions, giraffes, eland, cheetah amongst many others and over 350 species of birds.

Game viewing is by traditional open 4x4 vehicles in the early morning and late afternoon. There are special photographic hides by a waterhole where you can sit and watch as elephant, impala, lion and a variety of birds come to drink, and take your time to capture some superb images. Additional activities offered include walking safaris, horse back riding (for experienced riders) and mountain bike trips. The scenery is stunning and there are many historical and archaeological sites in the area too, most notably the Motloutse Ruins and the Pitsani Koppie sites.
