Tuli Safari Lodge Mashatu is an exciting new addition to the Mashatu portfolio, set on the bank of the mighty Limpopo River, with beautiful rolling lawns surrounded by sandstone outcrops. This 4-star camp has a swimming pool tucked away against the giant rocks, a star gazing deck, a hide and walking trail within the lodge grounds, as well as its own vegetable garden which supplies the kitchen.
Eight luxury tented suites are spacious, airy and elevated. They present themselves as draped canvas walls and roofs over timber frames. Large wrap-around decks provide a relaxing outdoor space with views over the Tuli and surrounding bush. The interiors are a modern interpretation of the classic ‘out of Africa’ décor, with a flowing open plan design. All suites feature an island bed, lounge area, freestanding bath, large separate shower, double basin vanity area, separate W.C. and ample storage space.
Two classic suites are furnished and designed to the same high standard, with similar internal layouts and features to the luxury tented suites. Outdoor showers in a private courtyard area are unique to the classic suites. These suites are thatched rooms with traditional brick walls, air conditioning and a shaded patio area.
A highlight at Tuli Safari Lodge Mashatu is the experience of the “moving tables” – dinner and brunch in a different location for each meal. On a 2-night stay guests would experience a bush brunch or dinner, as well as private dining set up in surprise spots around the camp, or on their own patios (private dining on request). The extensive lodge gardens and grounds include a large swimming pool, waterhole, hide and walking trail. Additional activities offered exclusively at Tuli Safari Lodge Mashatu are after dinner night drives, and cultural experiences / village tours (a full day’s activity).
