Location: Mashatu is a private reserve in the Tuli Block area of Botswana. With Zimbabwe to the north and South Africa to the south, this remote area offers visitors a diverse wilderness of savannah, riverine forests, marshland, plains and rocky outrops. There are a number of safari options for wildlife watchers and photography enthusiasts, including horse-trails and mountain biking.

Animals are abundant, including large herds of elephant. Predators including lions, leopards, hyenas and wild dogs are attracted by the wildebeest, kudu, eland, and impala that move through the area.
