Night 6 & 7: Two Mashatus Camp

Two Mashatus Camp

Nestled in the shade of a Mashatu tree with two traditionally built Lala palm rondavel dining and lounge areas. Accommodation is in big A-frame walk-in tents pitched on teak platforms with en-suite bathrooms. Each tent is private and positioned in the shade of a tree with a small deck area in front on which to relax during the afternoons. There is also a pool onsite.

Tree Camp
This is a very unique camp. Nestled in the bough of a giant Mashatu tree and two ancient Leadwood trees, this Seligna deck, 4 meters off the ground, will be your retreat for the night. Two guests each share an airy and cool sleeping pod. Along a short walkway, shared showers and toilets are under the Leadwood trees.
The spacious dining and lounge area flow from the sleeping pods and overlook the Majale River.

The Kgotla
The Kgotla is an old tribal court from a nearby community, which was relocated to the banks of the Motloutse River on the western periphery of Mashatu. The boma is an open-air traditional African enclosure made up of a circle of Leadwood logs. The camp has hot running water, beautiful open-air showers and flushing toilets (shared): the perfect combination for comfort and an authentic bush experience. Guests sleep on single beds around a large log fire in the center of the enclosure.

Room Occupancy
Triple occupancy is possible, however it may be a bit of a squeeze.
If you are willing to share, the single supplement fee does not apply.


Meals
All meals are included in this trip and 2 highly trained experienced bush chefs will look after your every need.

Breakfast is buffet of cereals, toast, fruit yoghurt and an egg or other dish (omelets or pancakes or muffins or porridge). 
Lunch is a buffet eg quiches, salads, and home made breads. 
Dinner is a 3 course meal served to you at the table, often under the canopy of stars! Vegetarians and other special diets are catered for; please inform us of any special dietary requirements. 

All water in the camp is filtered to the highest standards and is guaranteed perfectly safe for drinking.
