is a great landscape of mopane woodland, centuries-old
Baobab, meandering rivers and savannah acacia, inhabited
by wildlife of great profusion and diversity.
Mashatu is also home to no less than seven of Africa's
giants: the African Elephant, the Baobab Tree, the
Eland, the Ostrich, the Kori Bustard, Kiplings mighty
Limpopo River and the endless African sky.
is fitting therefore, that some 90 000 acres of pristine game
land, be set aside for these unique, prodigious features of this
exhilarating continent. It is still home to large herds of Elephant,
prides of Lion and Cheetah. Along the river courses, huge Mashatu
trees shade for Eland, Impala, Wildebeest and Zebra, whilst at
night, the Bat Eared Fox, African Wild Cat and the magnificent
Leopard search for prey. Mashatu Game Reserve proudly provides
a refuge for the largest, single population of Elephants on privately-owned
land in Africa. Known as the relic herds of Shashe, these Elephants
are the last living testament to the great herds that once populated
the meandering Limpopo valley.
