Mashatu Tented Camp

Marvellous Mashatu Tented Camp in Tuli Game Reserve

The northern Tuli Game Reserve is an undiscovered region in Botswana where hides the marvellous Mashatu Tented Camp and its luxury accommodation and where you can experience stimulating, memorable game viewing experience on bicycles in a wildlife concession. Get up close to wild mammals and birds on two wheels, the silent way, when you book our package tour to the best game viewing country in Africa. 

Great rates for just eight completely private tents tucked under the branches of enormous trees, linked via meandering pathways. Find the private Mashatu Game Reserve in the Northern Tuli Game Reserve of Botswana bordering South Africa where the ethereal tented camp is just 30 minutes from its sister safari venue, the well-known Mashatu Lodge. 

Welcome to the ultimate, intimate bush experience in these gorgeous canvas suites resting below enormous trees, each on their own platform with private outdoor en-suite facilities. Imagine showering under the stars! Meals are served either in the open-air thatched gazebo or in the boma (enclosure) overlooking the floodlit, well-populated waterhole where bush enthusiasts can witness animals going about their day. The camp’s plunge pool invites guests to cool off and escape the relentless heat typical of the summer months.

Mashatu Game Reserve is the embodiment of all that defines Africa – space so open and vast, it can be overwhelming and an array of wildlife from the gigantic to the minuscule. Majestic skies open to the universe and unfettered by smog; a silence so loud it thrums with life; and unexpected adventure beyond the game drive with horse-back safaris, cycling safaris and walks in the wild.

Mashatu Tented Camp is a refuge that is very different from the usual bush lodges in Botswana and beyond – almost one with the environment, this glamping setup is the leisure choice for the guest who seeks the ultimate one-on-one bush experience and who prefers a more intimate environment (and no children under the age of 12).

Safari vehicles meander into the bush twice a day, bringing visitors into close contact with an Africa that is largely known only in wildlife documentaries and glossy books. But this Africa is real, and distinctly tangible through all six senses. Mashatu Game Reserve is a place to connect you to the essence of what life is meant to be. Uncomplicated, bold, and beautiful.

Overview

Mashatu Tent Camp offers guests the ultimate, intimate bush experience from its prime position in the little known Mashatu Game Reserve in northern Botswana’s Tuli Game Reserve. Discover a tented haven where only 8 spacious personalised tents nestle in a grove of mature bushveld trees, their fabulous decks and outside showers a huge magnet for nature lovers. Imagine showering under the stars and dining around the roaring fire in the boma? Make sure you find a special spot on the open deck to watch animals come and go at the active waterhole all day and well into the night too. It’s floodlit and reveals much we don’t know about nocturnal wildlife!

Cool off in the dazzling plunge pool when the going gets hot and make new friends who also come to merge into this superior wilderness set apart from the mass tourism game reserves in Africa. Mashatu Tented Camp offers a rustic safari experience with all the special touches thrown in – camping in nature, yes, but camping in style with hot showers, large beds with waterhole views, fans, stunning seating areas and meandering pathways to the central lounge and dining area under thatch. 

The eco camp promotes zero waste policies so enjoy the stainless steel Mashatu Camp water bottles labelled with your own names!  Keep a look out for curious vervet monkeys in the trees around your tent and shy steenboks creeping by. 

Dinner is served under starlight in a mock-traditional open-air boma, meals created by talented chefs and kitchen staff who answer every need with grace. These small gestures mean the world to guests who then book again and again. Voyage2Africa sends our guests straight to Mashatu Tented Camp for their first game viewing experience and from there, Caprivi, Okavango Delta and Chobe.
