In the remote eastern corner of Botswana, at the confluence of the Limpopo and Shashe rivers, lies an area known historically as the Tuli enclave - a diverse wilderness of savannah, riverine forests, marshland, open plains and sandstone outcrops. It is here that the largest of the Rattray Reserves is situated - Mashatu Game Reserve. The name is derived from the magnificent Mashatu trees, which occur throughout this immense tract of privately owned land. Mashatu is also the home of no less than seven of Africa's giants: the African elephant, the lion, giraffe, the baobab tree, the eland, the ostrich, and the kori bustard.

A Limpopo Horse Safari epitomizes the classic African mobile safari with the added joy of travelling on horseback. The Bush n Lodge Safari is a seven night mobile safari utilizing two or three very different accommodation types. Starting and ending at the Two Mashatus.
Two Mashatus is a permanent tented camp set in a grove of giant Nyala berry trees otherwise known as Mashatu's. just a stones throw from the mighty Limpopo River. In true African style the tents are raised on timber decks and boast hot showers and toilet facilities. We also use a mixture of wonderful private lodges, the lodges give the added benefit of relaxing gardens, cooling pools, luxurious bathrooms and wonderfully appointed bedrooms. When the weather allows two nights are spent at the Kgotla Boma.
Sleeping out under the stars in the wilderness of Africa is always a memorable experience. The constant sounds of the night, hyenas whooping, Lions growling and Elephants snapping branches are memories to treasure, and even in the safety of the wooden kraal there is always a sense of being tangibly close to nature.
