Mashatu is very much the dream destination if you haven’t visited Africa before. Elephants, buffalo, lions, hippos, giraffe – they are all here, among dozens of other species. It’s remarkable how much you can see in a single game drive.
Raw animal encounters are complemented by exceptional luxury. Picture a swimming pool overlooking the herds and five-star-hotel-style suites. You do two to three safari activities per day, short activities that bring you close up encounters with the full range of animals.
And then you relax in decadent surroundings. Other destinations are bigger and wilder. Mashatu is perfect if it’s your first time, especially if you demand contemporary luxury, or are traveling as a family.
