Photographic hides, like the Bird Bath Hides and the Lagoon Hide, offer front-row seats to capture avian wonders up close. Transitioning to Mashatu Game Reserve, affectionately known as the “land of Giants,” you’ll step into an ancient wilderness spanning 90,000 acres. Nestled at the crossroads of Botswana, South Africa, and Zimbabwe, Mashatu’s diverse habitats support a rich tapestry of wildlife. Witness the largest elephant population on private property in Botswana, as well as leopards, lions, cheetahs, and hyenas. Your lens will capture the vivid landscapes, from Woodland Savanna to sweeping plains and sacred Sandstone outcrops. Mashatu’s sunken photographic hide, a hidden gem, brings wildlife to you.
