Accommodations for African Explorer Horse Safari


Accommodations
This is a wilderness ride, so nights will be spent in different locations.

Description
You will be staying at Camp Davidson for 4 nights and Mashatu for 3 nights in deluxe bush camps. Both locations offer 5 spacious and comfortable A-frame tents all built on raised decks equipped with beds, sheets, and duvets, making for very comfortable camping. Each tent has an ensuite bathroom area with hot water showers (water heated on the fire and placed in a 15 lt camp shower when you are ready) and jug and basin hand wash facilities. There are flushing toilets at Camp Davidson in South Africa, whereas in Botswana toilets are long drop eco toilets.  Solar lights and lanterns are used at both locations as there is no electricity. Laundry services are available at both sites (air dry). There is a limited WiFi and cell service in both locations. If you want to buy a local sim on arrival the one to buy would be MTN. Unwind relaxing by the pool after a long day's ride.


Night 1 - 4: Camp Davidson

A re-creation of the original Camp Davidson has recently been built high in the bushveld above the Matlapeng valley by our long time partners at Triple B Ranch. It offers the opportunity to explore on horseback from a secure base camp nestled in the heart of the wooded mountains and commands a wonderful panoramic view of the central highlands of the Waterberg range, while overlooking the picturesque Sunset Lake at the eastern boundary of the ranch property. Stay in decked canvas tents nestled amongst the sandstone ridges overlooking grassy valleys. Each tent is appointed as it would have been in Ted’s day with classic items that would have been essential to the traveler accustomed to regular nights in the bush.


Night 5 - 7: Two Mashatus Camp

The Two Mashatus camps are nestled in the shade of a centurion Mashatu tree, two traditionally built Lala palm rondavels serve as dining area and lounge. Accommodation is in big A-frame walk-in tents pitched on teak platforms, with en-suite enviro drop toilet and hot water shower. Each tent is private and positioned in the shade of a tree with a small deck area on which to relax during the afternoons.

Room Occupancy
Triple occupancy is possible.
If you are willing to share, the single supplement fee does not apply.


Meals
All meals are included from lunch on Day 1 to brunch on your last day. Two highly trained experienced bush chefs will look after your every need.
