Review For Mashatu Lodge
Mashatu is one of my favorite places I have visited in Africa. Our three nights at Mashatu Main Camp were a bit more pampering than we are personally used to, but the air-conditioned room was actually a welcomed luxury item given the heat wave we had experienced that week. Our guide Fish, was one of the best I've ever had, and I looked forward to every single game drive. Driving through the dry river beds is an adventure in itself, and the wildlife was fantastic. There is such a diverse mix of terrain at Mashatu, that it feels like you cover a lot of ground every day. We were a little bummed that we were unable to fit in a bike or horse safari. We did check out the "Discovery Room" which was a nice way to cool down and relax after a fantastic brunch. The food is very good and served family style - the boma overlooks a watering hole. This camp is highly recommended, worth the effort to get there. The Main Camp is definitely a departure from more rustic camps, so if luxury isn't desired - I'd recommend checking out Mashatu Tented Camp.
