Mashatu’s international airport positioned within the reserve

May 27, 2024

Effortless access for an unparalleled adventure

Touching down at Mashatu Game Reserve’s private international airport, Limpopo Valley Airfield, is an experience unlike any other in Southern Africa. Surrounded by 42,000 hectares of untamed and untouched wilderness, this exclusive facility within the reserve offers a rare blend of convenience and luxury for travellers wanting to experience the beauty of this hidden gem within Botswana.

Whilst there are only a handful of game reserves in Southern Africa that have airports nearby, having an international airport within the actual boundaries of a reserve, as Mashatu Game Reserve has, is a rare find.

An unmatched safari experience, from start to finish

Highly efficient and accessible for guests flying directly into the reserve, avoiding the hassle of landing elsewhere and having to clear customs into Botswana.

As you descend above Mashatu, a mesmerizing sight unfolds beneath you. From the comfort of your aircraft, spot iconic African wildlife including giraffes, zebras and elephants, all roaming freely across the vast landscape. This aerial preview sets the tone for the extraordinary adventures that await on the ground.

Once passports are stamped, you’ll be met by your friendly guide, who will drive you through the reserve directly to your accommodation. We like to say that this is when your first game drive truly begins.

Tailored for luxury and designed for comfort

Limpopo Valley Airfield accommodates a range of aircraft sizes, ensuring a seamless transition from sky to safari. Whether travelling in a small or large group, every aspect of your arrival is meticulously planned to cater to your desires for privacy and efficiency, with aircrafts accommodating two passengers, through to 32-seater aircrafts.
