Located in Mashatu Game Reserve, just 30 minutes from Mashatu Lodge, the rustic Mashatu Tent Camp offers guests an intimate bush experience. Boasting eight spacious, comfortable, and completely private tents that rest below enormous trees, each on their own platform with private outdoor en-suite facilities, this is a wonderous escape. Can you imagine showering under the stars?
The main area of Mashatu Tent Camp offers a plunge pool that invites guests to cool off and escape the summer heat. 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.
The sturdy and shaded photographic hide also overlooks the waterhole, and here bush enthusiasts can sit quietly and witness animals going about their day, completely unaware that they are being watched. It is humbling indeed to be an observer, to be part of the perfect, natural world.
Mashatu Game Reserve is situated at the confluence of the great Limpopo and Shashe Rivers in the remote eastern corner of Botswana. This area is known historically as the Tuli Enclave and it is here where the three countries; Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe converge. In addition to this large conservation area, Mashatu Game Reserve offers refuge to the largest elephant population on a private reserve on the African continent.
The most commonly used entry point for visitors to Mashatu Game Reserve is through the Pont Drift Border Post between South Africa and Botswana, and the Limpopo Valley Airfield on Mashatu.
Please note that officials at both the South African and Botswana customs and immigration offices strictly enforce the Pont Drift Border Post operating times which are to open at 8.00 am and to close at 4.00 pm. Road transfers from Polokwane to Mashatu Game Reserve take approximately 2 hours.
