Land of the Giants - Mashatu Deluxe Safari
Mashatu Botswana

Arouse the explorer within you and allow the spirit of a horse to carry you in rhythm with the African beat!
This deluxe horse safari is in the remote South Eastern corner of Botswana. Home to Mashatu Game Reserve, the “Land of the Giants” is an area of great diversity, magnificent vistas, land formations, history and legend as ancient as time itself. This pristine game viewing landscape lends itself to horse safaris. It is 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. Along the river courses, huge Mashatu trees provide shade for impala, wildebeest and zebra. Ride on horseback surrounded by a multitude of Africa’s flora and fauna and explore this breathtaking terrain.

This luxurious trail ride takes you between three different lodges and camps giving you the opportunity to explore the different aspects of the Mashatu and neighbouring reserves. You ride out early in the mornings and in the afternoons game drives and bush walks are organized. The accommodation is in a safari lodge (with a swimming pool), a comfortable farmhouse and the semi-permanent camp at Two Mashatus.

This horse safari is certainly the experience of a lifetime! Surrounded by a multitude of Africa’s flora and fauna, this breathtaking terrain
is explored from horse back guided by expert rangers and run by experienced horse men and horse women. The skilled equestrian has the chance to become one with the African bush, where the mighty baobab stands tall and where lions and hyena serenade you under the starry African night sky!
