Mashatu Game Reserve’s portfolio of camps is expanding with the introduction of Mashatu Euphorbia. Mashatu Euphorbia is the new 5-star camp, situated in this privately owned, baobab-studded reserve in Botswana. This “green” camp combines luxury with conservation and sustainability, where solar energy and state of the art water processing systems ensure a harmonious blend with the African bush. Mashatu Euphorbia is set high up on a cliff face amongst a forest of euphorbia succulents which open up to reveal exquisite vistas of the Majale River and endless plains below. With a maximum of 16 guests, an intimate ambiance is created, where warm and engaging Batswana staff are on hand. The dramatic dining experience of sitting in a boma of up lit euphorbias, makes dinner a magical affair. Expert Motswana guides (who have an average of 12 years of experience on Mashatu alone) will host a maximum of 4 guests per safari vehicle, showcasing the daily sightings of lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, hyena and a vast diversity of Africa’s plains game.
Guests are welcomed into their own private villas with heated plunge pools overlooking the ravine below. Built with brick and mortar, the villas are inspired by the curves and shape of the local Mopane tree, which is the lifeblood and main food source for many of the general game at Mashatu during the predominantly dry months of the year. The 8 secluded villas exude an earthy glamour, boasting both inside and outside showers, an inside W.C and second “loo with a view” and are spacious with numerous relaxation and ‘unplug’ areas. This camp is the perfect place to live out adventure on a mountain bike, walking, horseback riding or in an underground photographic hide, while returning each evening to an aura of natural elegance and comfort.
Mashatu Euphorbia will begin welcoming guests from June 2020, but reservations are now open.
