Escape the winter blues: Discover why Mashatu is a must-visit safari destination

June 21, 2024

Imagine trading the chill of the southern hemisphere winter for the warmth of the African sun. At Mashatu Game Reserve, our Heritage Campaign offers more than just a trip – it promises an adventure into Botswana’s wild beauty, perfect for a safari escape this August and September.

A Journey into the Heart of Africa

As August and September soon arrive, Mashatu transforms into a mesmerizing painting of golden hues. Picture yourself on a morning game drive, the air crisp and the landscape bathed in soft dawn light. Elephants gather to dig for water, lions stretch lazily in the sun, and the bush comes alive with the sounds of Africa’s birds awakening.

During these months, the dry season brings wildlife into view, congregating around water sources. Imagine witnessing a herd of elephants passing close by, or a cheetah on the hunt. Bird lovers will be in awe of the diverse species, from colourful finches to majestic eagles – surpassing an impressive 350 species found on the reserve.

Perfect Safari Weather

August offers days that are comfortably warm, ranging from 13°C (55°F) to 31°C (88°F), and nights that are cool, ideal for stargazing. By September, temperatures rise from 16°C (61°F) to 36°C (97°F), ensuring dry, clear days perfect for wildlife viewing and capturing breathtaking sunsets.
