Mashatu Tented Camp

Immersed in the bush, the Mashatu Tented Camp lies at the heart of this private reserve. Eight private tents shelter beneath the branches of towering trees, linked by a network of winding pathways.

At night, the camp's boma is lit by firelight and looks out over a floodlit waterhole - frequented by a wide variety of game.

In spite of the bush locale, the tents are comfortable and well appointed. Sitting on raised platforms, they feature en-suite facilities and an outside shower. Behind the tents a beautiful, communal plunge pool offers the chance to cool off, whilst a thatched gazebo acts as a space for relaxation and socialising.

Game drives are included at the camp, but a number of other activities can be arranged. These include walking safaris, cycling excursions, horse riding, photographic tuition, cultural trips and cable car crossings of the Limpopo River.

Why we like it

With a resident wildlife photographer, a number of brilliantly constructed game photographic hides and an on-site wildlife photography course, the focus at Mashatu is obvious. Renowned for delivering an incredible wildlife photography experience, this camp is a wonderful choice for photographers of all abilities.
