The Mashatu Tent Camp is almost one with the environment; blink and you might miss it! This tented camp is the leisure choice for the guest who seeks the ultimate one-on-one bush experience and who prefers a more intimate environment.
Located in the remote far eastern corner of Botswana in Mashatu Game Reserve, Mashatu Tented Camp is an oasis amongst the undulating and seemingly endless plains of the wild. Being located on the fringes of the desert, water is a precious resource. As the camp is close to water and in thick vegetation, it is an oasis for birds and animals ensuring the most incredible sightings in an otherwise endless wilderness.
Just 30 minutes by road from the main camp, Mashatu Lodge, Mashatu Tented Camp offers an immersive intimate bush experience for honeymooners, photographers and solo travellers. This lodge is unsuitable for children under the age of 12.
Meandering pathways lead you to eight completely private tents, carefully nestled under the branches of enormous trees. Each tent is spacious and comfortable with private outdoor ensuite bathrooms. This unique camp invites socialisation. Camaraderie abounds at shared meal times either in the open air thatched gazebo or the bomb overlooking the floodlit waterhole where animals come in abundance. The camp’s plunge pool is a welcome relief where guests can cool off and escape the relentless heat typical of the summer months.
Activities at Mashatu Tented Camp
There are several game viewing activities available at Mashatu Tented Camp. Accompanied by an experienced game ranger and tracker, vehicle game drives are taken early in the morning and in the evening when guests can stop at sunset for a sundowner in the African bush.
Engage with wildlife in other ways by taking a walking safari or taking to the bush on a mountain bike or on horseback.
An exclusive hide is a dream for photographers and wildlife enthusiasts alike. Overlooking the waterhole, the shaded hide is a highlight of any stay here and an ideal photographers location. Sit here and watch the animals going about their day in their natural environment, completely oblivious to the fact they are being watched.
Instant camaraderie is the norm at this unique camp. Meal times are shared without pomp and ceremony, either in the open-air thatched gazebo, or in the boma (enclosure) overlooking the floodlit, well-populated waterhole.
Eight completely private tents are tucked under the branches of enormous trees, accessible via meandering pathways. The tents themselves are spacious and comfortable – large enough that adults need not duck to move around. Each is mounted on a concrete platform and has its own private outdoor en-suite facilities, including W.C. and shower. Imagine showering under the stars!
