Wildlife & Activities
Mashatu is famous for large herds of elephants and impressive populations of cheetah, which breed in good numbers, along with lion, leopard, zebra, giraffe, wild dog, bat eared fox, jackal, and many plains antelope including eland, which are often seen at close quarters. Wildlife drives are conducted with a guide and tracker, and a maximum of four guests on each vehicle. Additional activities which can be booked at an extra cost include bush walks, mountain biking, horse riding, photographic vehicle and drone hire. There is also the opportunity to visit the ‘elephant hide’ which is at ground level by a waterhole frequented by elephants and lots of other wildlife. Pre-booking this unforgettable, and possibly wet, experience is strongly advised, and the presence of a photographic guide in the hide enables guests to take truly astounding photos.
