TESTIMONIALS

Sally Hinton

My other favourite part of the workshop was watching the elephants from the hide - the babies were just so cute slipping and sliding in the mud around the waterhole and watching the interaction between the babies and the older elephants was very special!

RATES

PRICING (USD)
PHOTO VEHICLE

 

(per day - maximum 4 pax, but ideally suited to 2 pax. This includes 1 optional tutor session per day & 1 x hide session subject to availability upon booking. For dates 1 December - 1 June each year "book 3 days, pay 2" and "book 4 days, pay 3" special on photo vehicle.)

CONDITIONS OF USE

 

Exclusive use is for groups or single photographers who would like the hides for their own private use. The rate is a per day cost and gives clients access to the booked hide during that day ($760 for 2018 and $960 for 2019). If you are a group of 8 photographers or more it is usually more cost effective to use the exclusive use rate than the per person rate. Exclusive use of the photographic hides is only applicable to the Matebole hide, subject to availability.

  • All guests using the hide have to be accompanied by a PhotoMashatu wildlife photographer.

  • Should the PhotoMashatu wildlife photographer be unavailable, guests of Mashatu can utilize the hides, at the normal rate in the company of a Mashatu guide.

  • We recommend that photographic hides are pre-booked prior to guests arrival.

  • No children under the age of 12 permitted in the hides.

  • The hides will be closed for maintenance at year end. Please contact our reservations team to inquire about availability and hide closure dates.
