Mashatu Game Reserve, Botswana
Mashatu Tent Camp blends in so perfectly with its natural surroundings that you might miss it if you blink. It is the perfect choice for those who seek an intimate and authentic safari experience close to animals and far from crowds. Eight comfortable and spacious tents are privately tucked beneath the branches of enormous trees. Each tent includes an outdoor, yet very private, bathroom with shower. Guests love Mashatu for its casual, low-key atmosphere, which is conducive to camaraderie and relaxation. Meals are served in the open-air thatched gazebo, or in the outdoor boma overlooking a floodlit waterhole, where a variety of different species is spotted on a regular basis. A refreshing plunge pool provides welcome relief from the midday heat, especially during the summer months. An afternoon spent in the hide near the waterhole, enjoying some truly close encounters with the local wildlife, is an experience not to be missed.
