Immerse yourself in the bush on exciting game drives that are never the same, and consistently surprise, amaze and astonish. Offering unique ecological biodiversity, you will come across a plethora of iconic wildlife including the Big Five, and observe cheetah roaming the expansive plains. Enormous herds of elephant meander through lush riverine forests and opportunistic jackal and hyena follow the stealthy predators in the hope of a tasty feast. Mashatu promises a diverse safari experience, so keep your binoculars on hand for prolific sightings of giraffe, zebra, eland, warthog, baboons, bat-eared foxes, kudu and honey badgers to mention but a few. Home to more than 350 bird species including the exquisite lilac breasted roller, and Botswana’s national bird, the kori bustard, the largest flying bird native to Africa, Mashatu is a veritable birder’s paradise.
As this is a privately owned game reserve there are limited vehicles at each sighting, creating a more intimate setting, away from the crowds. Your experienced guide will make sure you are strategically positioned to ensure you are able to capture the perfect photograph.
