Mashatu Game Reserve – Elephant hide bigger & better


The well renowned Matebole Elephant Hide is now able to accommodate 8 guests per session. After much digging, dusting and painting, the newly refurbished photographic hide is officially welcoming guests. Where previously only four guests could be accommodated, there is now ample room for eight guests. Varnished wooden work benches provide the perfect platform to place camera equipment when taking award-winning photographs, while shelves and spare hanging space ensure all jackets and bags are neatly stored during the sessions. Enter the hide before day-break and sit, sipping on tea and coffee, whilst waiting for the first of the smallest mammals to emerge… mice, squirrels, birds, baboons, cats, antelope and finally the elephant. This is one activity which comes highly recommended for all who visit Mashatu, but please be sure to book prior to your arrival.  Many of the photos captured in this incredible photographic hide go on to win accolades around the world.
