The essence of a Photo Mashatu experience
Capture spectacular wildlife sightings on a specialised, dedicated photographic safari. Photo Mashatu provides the ideal opportunity to snap the perfect image with a qualified resident photographer. Your guide will be on hand to assist and guide with lighting, perspective, technical and practical advice, and tips on the art of wildlife photography. Work at your pace for careful preparation and ideal positioning. Your photographic sessions take place either in the underground photographic hide, at the lodge, or on the dedicated Photo Mashatu photographic vehicle.
Two large shipping containers sunk into the ground make up the Matebole elephant hide. Perfectly submerged, they provide ground level views of a popular waterhole. World-renowned, this hide is the ideal spot to set up equipment for wildlife photography, with a plethora of wildlife making their way to the water to quench their thirst during the dry season. Observe predators, herds of elephants, and kaleidoscopic bird life, mere meters from the camera lens. Go to the heart of the wild and be captivated by the wealth of photographic opportunities.
