This Botswana adventure offers an intimate getaway to one of Botswana's best kept secrets, where ancient Africa still lives on. All your senses will be fully engaged as you take in the endless blue skies and spectacular scenery while on truly exciting game drives, horseback safari and cycling tours through the Botswana wilderness.
This pristine wilderness has an ecological diversity that is uncommon in other reserves. You'll see vast herds of Elephant, the largest on private land on the planet, Lion, Cheetah, Leopard, Eland and now Wild Dog amongst many other fascinating animals. Bird life is prolific and you could spot specialties such as the Lilac-breasted Roller and the Kori Bustard.
Relaxation is a key element at the bush camp which provides traditional creature comforts. Each suite enjoys a private bush setting and you can look forward to delicious meals packed with the flavours of Africa. Your extremely experienced ranger and tracker will see to it that you come away with unforgettable memories of your Botswana safari.
From Johannesburg take a flight to Polokwane where you will be met by a representative. A 2-3 hour road trip awaits you. Cross the border into Botswana, passing through customs and immigration and after a scenic drive end up at your destination - a hidden Botswana safari lodge in the northern section of Botswana - known as the Tuli Block.
After a warm welcome and check-in, you can freshen up in your room before meeting for snacks on the terrace overlooking the waterhole. In the late afternoon set off on your first game drive with an experienced game ranger and tracker. On the drive back to the bush camp a powerful spotlight will be used to search for nocturnal wildlife.
Saddle up on one of the many horses that have been individually selected and are of various breeds. Spend your next two days discovering the Botswana wilderness as you traverse the Mashatu Game Reserve in Botswana on horseback, bicycle and open safari vehicle.
The area has great diversity, magnificent views and dramatic rock formations bordered by the Limpopo River. You should be able to spot herds of elephant and a large variety of wildlife species during your Botswana safari adventure.
This Botswana safari adventure can easily be combined with other destinations in Botswana or South Africa. We recommend extending this trip with few days in the Kruger Park and/or Cape Town.
