This is Mashatu Tent Camp, a place of surety and peace.
A 30 minute vehicle transfer from Mashatu Main Camp is a refuge that is very different. 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 (and no children under the age of 12).

Eight completely private tents at Mashatu Tent Camp are tucked under the branches of enormous trees, accessible via meandering pathways. The tents themselves are spacious and comfortable and large enough that adults need not duck to move around in. 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!
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 camp’s plunge pool invites guests to cool off and escape the relentless heat typical of the summer months.
The sturdy and shaded 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.

Safari vehicles meander into the bush twice a day from Mashatu Tent Camp, bringing visitors into close contact with an Africa that is largely known only in wildlife documentaries and glossy books. But this Africa is real, and distinctly tangible through all six senses.
Mashatu Walking Safaris
There are a wide variety of landscapes, vegetation types and eco-systems on Mashatu which should be all experienced first-hand. Walking Mashatu offers the wilderness lover, the bird watcher, the keen botanist, the intrepid hiker and the nature enthusiast the ultimate experience whilst walking in the Land of Giants. Tailor-made walking safaris suit the disposition of the clients on safari. Distances covered per day depend on the ability and preference of the guests. There is no limit on the number of nights spent on the walking safari. It is however suggested that at least three nights are booked. Guests camp out in one of three camps specifically designed for comfort in the bush. Luggage is transported by vehicle between camps to give guest the opportunity to have full enjoyment of the walk, without having to carry any luggage.
Mashatu Cultural/Village Excursion
The rugged landscapes of Mashatu, ‘Land of Giants’, offer a sensational view of the sub-continent, unchanged since the days of Kipling, Selous and artist/explorer Sir Thomas Baines. But strewn and scattered throughout the reserve lie the ghosts of Africa’s early legacy – ancient ruins that yield even more lucid insights into the forefathers who shaped the continent’s history.
Mashatu Cycle Safaris
Bring your mountain bike and ride amongst the wildlife of the vast Northern Tuli Game Reserve. You owe yourself the opportunity at least once in your life!
Cycle Mashatu operates the cycling concession on Mashatu Game Reserve. Cycling is offered to guests from both Main Camp and Tent Camp as an experience to be enjoyed during their stay on a more traditional vehicle safari. Guests can also book a ‘camp wild’ cycling experience comprising up to three days on a cycling safari. These safaris depart Fridays and Tuesdays in the winter months where Cycle Mashatu offers a 3 night guided mountain biking adventure, catering for up to 8 cyclists. Enjoy riding elephant manicured game paths, sleeping under the starlit skies and exploring the ancient Land of the Giants. Cycle Mashatu tailors the tours to suit the group’s fitness and strength and provides vehicle support, meals, and camp amenities. Many would argue that you have not lived until you have cycled in the Land of Giants – a thrilling experience indeed.
Mashatu Tent Camp Boma
Meals are a sumptuous celebration of traditional African Cuisine – flavorsome and homely. Fresh fruits, vegetables, home-made breads and pies, succulent meat dishes and delicious desserts will appeal to a guest who appreciates informal cuisine at its best.
Morning pre-game drive snacks, brunch and high tea are served on the shaded terrace.
Dinners are served around a blazing fire in the reed-enclosed boma here at Mashatu Tent Camp (African structure), exposing diners to the glorious night sky above.
Mashatu Tent Camp Reviews
“We stayed here for 4 nights on our most recent safari. First time at this camp (3rd trip to Botswana in over 30 years of African safaris). The camp is beautiful, staff are great and the food was amazing. My wife is gluten intolerant and they catered for her wonderfully well.” – Tangawizi_Sandan
“We recently spent 4 nights here and loved every minute. The facilities are more than comfortable – large tents raised on cement pads with big comfy beds, an awesome outdoor ensuite – including a shower – fans to keep you cool and a big front porch to relax on.” – Tracey B
“We stayed here 4 nights and enjoyed every minute. We were in a group of six tourists with a guide and a spotter and had prearranged activities such as a safari walk, an all day cultural tour, and a half day in the photographic hide with an expert photographer. In between we went on game drives in the reserve.” – Kurt_in_CLE
