US$ 8,977

Experience two of Southern Africa's most exclusive game reserves as you explore diverse landscapes and wildlife. This 8 day, deluxe safari delivers comfort while keeping the focus on the wildlife in Botswana and South Africa.


Visit two of Southern Africa’s finest game reserves on this 8-day, deluxe African safari. Explore Mashatu Game Reserve in Northern Tuli, Botswana, before going on to Mala Mala Game Reserve, South Africa.

One of Botswana’s more exclusive reserves, Mashatu offers superb wildlife viewing. Elephants abound, alongside large populations of zebra, giraffe, and wildebeest. Big cats are a little rarer, but this is one of Southern Africa’s best reserves if you’re hoping to spot an elusive leopard. With game drives running twice a day, you’ll have ample opportunity for catching that dream sighting. If you’d prefer, swap one or more of them for mountain biking, horseback riding or a walking safari. With four nights here, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to try all the activities on offer.

Fly to Mala Mala Game Reserve, a part of Greater Kruger with a stunning array of wildlife. All the big 5 are present here, though you’ll have to look sharp to glimpse a rare black rhino. Don’t worry, you’re far more likely to see its white cousin! Cheetahs, leopards, and lions are all common sightings, so big cat lovers will not be disappointed. Enjoy scheduled morning and afternoon game drives plus guided nature walks before you depart.

    Mashatu Main Camp is an oasis among the undulating and seemingly endless plains of the wild. Burning torches at the camp's entrance lure safari-goers home, where they experience the embodiment of sublime hospitality.
    The 14 luxury suites lie along the camp's perimeter, and are designed to allow absolute privacy and a communion with the bush and its inhabitants. Watch elephants splashing at the waterhole, listen to the lyrical melody of the woodlands kingfisher on a branch overhead, smell the grassy scent of the bushveld, and touch the bark of an ancient tree and inhale a breath of air so pure, it's intoxicating.
    Each of the air-conditioned suites at Mashatu Main Camp is tastefully decorated, and includes impressive black and white prints of Africa’s most beautiful animals. A double bed and an extra-large single bed, together with ample en-suite bathroom with both bath and shower facilities and a separate W.C. complete the well-appointed suites.
