In this program for 2021 we are combining the best of both worlds. Our aim was to give you an authentic bush safari guided by the best in the industry in our opinion along with one of the most amazing close encounters you could wish for if you are a wildlife lover,nature lover birder or a photographer. If you fit any of those categories then this African Safari is for you.
Our journey will start in the Okavango Delta for 5 nights where you get to experience an authentic bush safari at its best.You’ll get to eat under the night African skies, sitting around the campfire that always does wonders for the soul.
There are two camp spots that we’ll be camping at and you never have to put your tent up and take it down. These tents are spacious and each tents comes with its own ensuite at the back. You have your own privacy when it comes to using the bathroom at the back of your tent.
If you go to the videos that we have done for you ,which you’ll find in the video section of this site, you will get a better picture of the tents and the general set up.We have been using our friends at Safari Life for a number of years and 95% of our guests state that this is a massive highlight of their trip with us. When you find an amazing company that does it right and you develop a great understanding that you are all on the same page, then why look elsewhere.
The second part of the trip takes us to an extraordinary part of Africa. It is located in a very remote part of Botswana . The area is known as the Land of the Gaints” Mashatu.
We’ll be spending 6 amazing Nights at Mashatu where you’ll experience nature viewing at another level. You’ll have time in an amazing hide that is sunken into the ground and you are at eye level to the water. It is here that you’ll see wildlife at another level and a level that is hard to achieve anywhere else.Seeing elephants drinking meters away from you, birds drinking and a arrangement of animals coming and going is breath taking.
Mixed with the hide sessions we also have the game drives which will expose you to animals outside the waterhole.
Africa Running Wild Safaris visited Mashatu this year to experience it our selves to see it is worth including in our future trips. A massive thumbs up and anything we include in our safaris has to meet a particular standard and both Safari Life and Mashatu exceed all expectations.
During the trip you get photography teaching sessions if you want them and the aim is to help you take better pictures.This will make a big difference with the pictures that you come home with.These sessions are not compulsory.If you wish to use this time to read a book, to relax, then you can.
This is the Tented Camp at Mashatu. It comes with two single beds. This has a double in it as it was also our Honeymoon. All tents have two single beds for twin share.
This is an example of images taken on out time with the Bush Safari. You have plenty of time and you also get the teaching from Africa Running Wild Safaris to help improve your photography skills as we are on the game drive.
Below is an example of what you get from the hide at Mashatu.
This is a cross section of images taken from the hide and these pictures show small section of the animals that visit the hide. You can’t guarantee what comes to the hide as wildlife is unpredictable but what you can guarantee is that you will see amazing wildife of Africa. If you love animals, nature and photography, you cannot get bored here. It’s simply inspiring and it will become highlight in your life over time.
We can’t go past the elephant. They dominate the waterhole when they are there and this hide gives you opportunities to take image that would otherwise either be impossible or very hard to achieve the end result.
Standing outside your tent at the Tented Mashatu site. Simply a stunning and inspiring place.
