The Mashatu Green Season

Posted 2015/11/11 02:36:22 PM by Ruth

 

A very special transformation happens at Mashatu Game Reserve during the month of January. After the first big rains have fallen in November and December the open plains of the reserve become laden with a carpet of green flowers, Mopane’s sprout their new florescent green leaves and the once dry river beds transform into a playground for elephants and birds. All these create the most picturesque scenario’s for any wildlife photographer.

For this very reason C4 has opened up a brand new safari - ‘The Mashatu Green Season Photo Safari’ which will be running from 18-23 January 2016. On average Mashatu only experiences 4 days of rain in January, however those few days of rain are fleeting and bring dramatic skies that make for spectacular landscape photography. The trip will be hosted out of Main Camp where guests can enjoy the luxury of an air-conditioned room during the heat of the day. You will be hosted by our Mashatu resident photographers, Kyle de Nobrega and Ruth Nussbaum who are the expert and resident wildlife photographers in the area.

The safari will run over 5 nights, 4 being spent at Mashatu Main Camp and 1 night being spent under the stars at the Kogtla camp, from where you will have the unique opportunity to photograph Mmamagwa/Rhodes’s baobab at one of Africa’s most iconic landscape locations.

C4 is offering an exceptional price for this 5 night stay during the Mashatu Green season Photo Safari. The safari includes exclusive use of the photographic hides, photographic vehicle, and of course your two C4 Photo Safaris photographic guides. There is no reason to miss out on this exceptionally well priced safari. If you aren’t sold yet just take a look at some of the images you will get on this safari...
