On the eastern fringes of the Kalahari Desert, Mashatu Lodge is a literal oasis among the undulating and seemingly endless plains of the wild, a draw to wildlife from miles around. Watch elephants splashing at the waterhole, listen to the lyrical melody of the woodlands kingfisher on a branch overhead, smell the grassy scent of the bushveld.

14 luxury suites lie along the camp’s perimeter and are designed to allow absolute privacy and a connection with the bush and its inhabitants. Each is tastefully decorated and feature a en suite bathrooms, a double bed and an extra-large single bed, together with a seating area that includes a single day bed, comfortably accommodating families with younger children.

A large swimming pool is a focal point where guests cool down and relax between game activities. Meals are a sumptuous celebration of traditional African cuisine, with fresh fruits, vegetables, home-made breads and pies, succulent meat dishes and delicious desserts that are home cooking at its best.

Being a private reserve, activities are extremely varied, including vehicle safari, walking safari, hiking, mountain biking, horse-back safari and night vehicle safari.
