      Mashatu

      The Private Reserve with Unlimited Safari Options

      There are some mainstream destinations in Africa that you should explore such as the Masai Mara in Kenya and the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, willing to be with many other travelers to see such incredible sights. Then there is Mashatu in Southern Botswana. It is a private reserve, with controls on the number of visitors. It’s a spectacular place to see big game such as elephant, lion, and leopard. It also has a wonderfully traditional African safari lodge to stay at. Mashatu is an absolute gem that should be a priority on every Africa traveler's list. There are more than just game drives here. Explore with elephant or lion researchers on board your vehicle. Hop aboard a night drive where you can search for leopard, hyena, and other nocturnal species. You can be a part of stalking safaris, walking up dry riverbeds and “stalking” animals. Get up close in strategically placed photographic hides manned by a professional photographer. You can mountain bike among the animals on easy, half-day rides from the lodge or on longer, more challenging rides that overnight at a fly camp. And for those who love horses, Mashatu offers some of the best wildlife rides in the world.
