Thanks for sharing this video with us. What an enjoyable experience that must have been.

I can vouch that, to this day, I would know nothing about Mashatu were it not for Safaritalk. I keep hearing great things about it. I believe they completely refurbished the tented camp in the last year or so?

The tented camp was re done because of severe flooding in Dec 2013 into 2014. In fact it was unusable until April 2014!

I have been there twice before this last visit and I noticed some differences but it is basically the same....WONDERFUL!
