What to expect at Mashatu Game Reserve

Go further towards the wild country and be spellbound by the level of wildlife variety lying within Mashatu Game Reserve. Their huge presence and graceful movement through the wild habitat overshadow any other presence in the savannah—majestic elephants. From the giant of the savannah down, stunningly elegant antelope gracefully make their way across the open plains; their grace of movement, in itself, is a signal of adaptation to this harsh landscape. The wildlife, from the elusive leopard slinking in the shadows to the regal lion surveying his kingdom, fills Mashatu from one corner to the other, and brief insights are given into the systems supporting these great beasts. The luxurious lowland forests create a sanctuary for numerous species of birds, which by their bright radiant plumage are speckled dots of color over the green background. Each second that goes by is through the heartbeats of the wild felt throughout the air, pulsing onward and outward, inviting one in full engagement of the spectacle of nature's great beauty.

Best time to visit Mashatu Game Reserve

The other downside is that the dry season, which falls in the months of May to October, is the main time bracket in which tourists get the opportunity to enjoy the alluring attraction that is Mashatu Game Reserve at its maximum. One remarkable phenomenon takes place that one will not experience in any other park: the congregations around dwindling water sources turn the landscape into a mosaic of golden hues. The soil may be arid, but water is the blood running through it, bringing creatures small and large—from the gigantic herds of elephants to the most secretive of predators that slink through the savannah. Vegetation is poor, and visibility is high, making such iconic species as lions, leopards, and cheetahs readily visible. It is these moments of observation and photography that will never be forgotten. This is when the increase in animal numbers during the dry season sees things to be sighted in the wild at their highest, and the felt conditions are very much ideal for one to travel the open savannah of the reserve—be it out on the track during a game drive or on a quiet walk with the rangers. As the days merge into evenings under the warm, open African sky, the real adventure and discovery of the dry season at Mashatu, within the full splendor of nature, commence.
