Wildlife Action at Mashatu

Wildlife Action at Mashatu

Action, adrenaline, something constantly happening…that’s Mashatu Game Reserve.

And these adjectives have never been so well suited to Mashatu as they were during the first week of October. Mashatu is renowned for “the kill” being witnessed. This is due to the high predator populations, as well as the vast open plains and short grass. Although Mashatu never really gets more than 30 days of rain a year, October is the driest month and the predators seem to have turned the reserve into a buffet. With so many cubs around, it is not surprising that there are plenty of hungry bellies to feed.
