Occupying the Northern Tuli Game Reserve, which shares unfenced boundaries with both South African and Zimbabwean national Parks, Botswana’s Mashatu Lodge is a fantastic choice for an African wildlife safari. Aside from a dazzling array of species, the property offers a wide variety of activities ranging from photographic hides, safaris by vehicle, bicycle, horseback or on foot.
The 14 air-conditioned suites at Mashatu Lodge are tastefully decorated with black-and-white images of Africa’s wild icons. They also contain day beds and generously sized ensuite bathrooms. All lie along the camp’s perimeter for privacy and for sweeping views of the surrounding bushveld.
Meals are enjoyed in the main lodge, which contains a large swimming pool, dining area including a traditional ‘boma’ as well as a ‘Discovery Room’ where visitors can inspect archaeological artefacts, check out an aquarium containing local fish species and review the results of predator and elephant research conducted at Mashatu.
