Tuli Block (Includes Mashatu) in Botswana

This privately owned game reserve is located at the confluence of the Limpopo and Shashi rivers in the remote and rarely visited Northern Tuli region of Botswana and includes Mashatu Game Reserve, the largest private reserve in Botswana. Northern Tuli is a diverse and stunning wilderness of savannah, riverine forests, marshland, open plains and sandstone outcrops.

Many guests visiting this region arrive by road and air from South Africa as this reserve in the South East of Botswana does not have easy flight connections from Botswana’s other prime safari locations.

The area offers excellent value for money safari holidays as well offering some unusual alternatives to the traditional open safari vehicle game drives.

Animals found here include, lion, elephant, buffalo, eland, cheetah, giraffe and zebra and there is an excellent chance of leopard sightings.

DRY SEASON

The bush begins to dry out in June and game viewing is excellent, whilst flood waters in the Okovanga Delta continues to rise. This is the beginning of the peak season as the weather becomes progressively warmer, with sunny clear days and less vegetation improving sightings.

By August animal herds grow larger on land and are commonly found near water sources with outstanding game viewing.

September sees the Okovanga Delta water levels peak and the weather is now very hot and the land extremely dry. Predators can be seen dramatically chasing down plains game leaving an incredible cloud of dust in their path.

green SEASON

Rains become more frequent in December, days remain warm whilst the flood waters continue to dry out. The bush is turning green once more and animals begin calving.

January sees spectacular thunderstorms, warm days and the birthing season is at its peak. Great game viewing can be had in the green season with an abundance of life and activity.

By March the rain should be less frequent, with long periods of dry spells and the atmosphere less humid.

Trees start bearing fruit in April, the grass has grown tall and thick, guides are now working hard and relying more upon their expertise for your sightings.

SHOULDER SEASON

November is extremely hot and anticipating the happy arrival of the first rains, whilst the Okovanga flood waters begin to recede, still allowing for excellent game viewing.

May sees the start of the dry season with cool nights and warm days, the Okavango Delta begins to fill, seasonal pans dry out and game viewing is good.
