Host to some of the finest predator viewing on the continent, this new eco-camp in #Botswana is set to leave a lasting impression. Mashatu Euphorbia Villas is the new 5-star environmentally conscious flagship camp of the Northern Tuli Game Reserve and is situated in the privately owned, baobab-studded, Mashatu Game Reserve. Mashatu Euphorbia Villas combines luxury with conservation and sustainability, where solar energy and state of the art water processing systems ensure a harmonious blend with the African bush. It is set high up on a cliff face amongst a forest of euphorbia succulents which open up to reveal exquisite vistas of the Majale River and endless plains below.

Experience the famously warm ‘Mashatu welcome’ to your personal villa, echoing the breath-taking natural beauty of the reserve. The curves and shape of the villas draw inspiration from the local Mopane tree’s pod, its significance evident as the main food source for many animals, predominantly during the dry months of the year. The villas exude an earthy glamour, boasting solar-heated, private plunge pools, indoor and outdoor showers, a primary WC and second ‘loo with a view,’ all while giving guests that feeling of the ultimate escape. Savour the essence of exclusivity with only 4 guests per safari vehicle, exploring the 31000-hectare (76000 Acre) Land of the Giants, returning to camp to enjoy a beverage on the cliff edge, taking in the astounding beauty below.

A dramatic dining experience is created, as guests sit in boma of up-lit euphorbias beneath the stary skies. With a maximum of 16 guests, an intimate ambiance is created, where engaging and attentive staff are on hand to ensure this a safari of a lifetime. BOOK or ENQUIRE NOW
