Extension Mashatu

From Mopane Bush lodge you will be taken to Pont Drift, the border crossing into Botswana. There you will be met by friendly Mashatu Game Reserve staff who will transfer you by road to the Mashatu Tent Camp.
In the remote eastern corner of Botswana, at the confluence of the Limpopo and Shashe rivers, lies a diverse wilderness of savannah, riverine forests, marshland, open plains and sandstone outcrops.. Mashatu is the home of no less than seven of Africa’s giants: the African elephant, the lion, the giraffe, the baobab tree, the eland, the ostrich, and the kori bustard..

Mashatu Game Reserve, an area of history and legend, is a place of exceptional beauty where one can explore the rugged, un-spoiled African landscapes in the comfort of open 4-wheel drive vehicles, guided by expert rangers and experienced trackers. Along the river courses, huge mashatu trees provide shade for eland, impala, wildebeest, giraffe and zebra, whilst at night, the bat eared fox, African wild cat and the magnificent leopard search for prey. Some 350 species of birds may be seen. Mashatu Game Reserve proudly provides a refuge for the largest, single population of elephant on privately-owned land in Africa. Today, the population on Mashatu Game Reserve alone, is estimated to number in excess of 700.

The wildlife experience at Mashatu is personalised. Dedicated, experienced Tswana rangers and trackers are keen to show you their world. Radio-linked 4-wheel drive vehicles set out at dawn and again at dusk in search of the diverse variety of fauna and flora which abound throughout the reserve.

Whether you visit Mashatu for the relaxation of un-spoiled Africa, for the adrenalin of adventure in the wild, or the quiet luxury of the camps, you will not be disappointed.
