Unique to Telfair is the interaction between the diners and the chef allowing guest to contribute ideas while he is creating dishes, in full view of everyone in a spectacular open kitchen.

Annabella's

In tribute to Annabella, the wife of Charles Telfair, this restaurant has been designed in the style typical of plantation owners homes. Run as a 'Chic' brasserie, with half-moon shaped banquettes, rattan chairs and traditional open kitchen which allows customers to watch the food being prepared, these are all elements that give this place the special atmosphere of a journey backwards through time.Divided into four distinct areas, Annabella's can choose a different setting for itself every day, such as for example, the terrace along the Citronniers River.

Every day the chef presents a creative menu which is constantly renewed, offering European cuisine with Mauritian influences.

Gin'ja

Built on the white sand at the lagoon's edge, the Gin'ja restaurant's décor is fashionable but the atmosphere is relaxed. This restaurant invites you to experience Japanese and Asian cuisine, both traditional and contemporary and is headed by our Japanese chef Hiroyuki Tamagawa. The Chef creates an inspired cuisine where creativity respects the original flavours of the products used. Around the Robota Yaki, fish, shellfish and seafood are prepared on skewers and grilled or served to you as sashimi or sushi, in the Japanese fashion.

At lunchtime you can enjoy the beautiful different views from the quiet banks of the Citronniers River and the vastness of the ocean whose horizon stretches to infinity. In the evening, the restaurant adopts a more sophisticated atmosphere, tables are set on our "deck" decorated with candles, ideal for a dinner for two.

Soon, the guests of Heritage Le Telfair will be able to enjoy our "Sushi Bar" and taste one of the many Sakés during or after their meal.

Punctuated by large old trees overlooking a captivating French style garden, which spreads out as far as the eye can see (with the Bel Ombre golf course below it), this historic house dating from the nineteenth century has been tastefully restored and has brought bygone days back to life again.Old-fashioned charm emanates from its antique furniture, beautiful panelling, high ceilings, majestic steps and veranda.

Print Email

Mashatu Game Reserve in the Tuli nature reserve, Botswana, is a veritable treasure chest, offering something for everyone! Choose between luxurious and elegant accommodation within the Main Camp, or the more rustic experience of the Tent Camp. Mountain bike, horse and walking safaris add depth to the traditional African safari experience. Game viewing at Mashatu is abundant with daily sightings of Africa’s finest – The Land Of The Giants!

MASHATU GAME RESERVE - Botswana MASHATU GAME RESERVE - Botswana MASHATU GAME RESERVE - Botswana

MASHATU MAIN CAMP

In the remote eastern corner of Botswana, at the confluence of the Limpopo and Shashe rivers, lies an area known historically as the Tuli enclave - a diverse wilderness of savannah, riverine forests, marshland, open plains and sandstone outcrops. It is here that the largest of the Rattray Reserves is situated - Mashatu Game Reserve. The name is derived from the magnificent Mashatu trees, which occur throughout this immense tract of privately owned land. Mashatu is also the home of no less than seven of Africa's giants: the African elephant, the lion, giraffe, the baobab tree, the eland, the ostrich, and the kori bustard. It is fitting therefore, that some 75,000 acres / 30,000 hectares of pristine game land, be set aside for these unique, prodigious features of this exhilarating continent.

Mashatu Game Reserve, an area of history and legend, offers some of the most exciting game viewing in Africa. It is a place of exceptional beauty where one can explore the rugged, unspoilt African landscapes either in the comfort of open 4-wheel drive vehicles, on a walking safaris, on mountain bicycles, or horse back, guided by expert rangers and experienced trackers. In addition to the game experience, Mashatu offers a view of Africa, unchanged since the days of early visitors such as Kipling, Selous and artist/explorer Sir Thomas Baines. Historic and archaeological sites abound; notable are the Motloutse Ruins and the Pitsani Koppie sites.

The excitement of Mashatu has not changed over time. It is still home to large herds of elephant, prides of lion and cheetah. Along the river courses, huge Mashatu trees provide shade for eland, impala, wildebeest, giraffe and zebra, whilst at night, the bat-eared fox, African Wildcat and the magnificent leopard search for prey.Some 366 species of birds may be seen. Mashatu Game Reserve proudly provides a refuge for the largest, single population of elephant on privately owned land in Africa. Known as the relic herds of Shashe, these elephants are the last living testament to the great herds that once populated the meandering Limpopo valley. Today, the population on Mashatu Game Reserve alone, is estimated to number in excess of 500.

The wildlife experience at Mashatu is personalised. Dedicated, experienced Tswana rangers and trackers are keen to show you their world. Radio-linked 4-wheel drive vehicles, groups of mountain bicycles or horses set out at dawn and again at dusk in search of the diverse variety of fauna and flora which abound throughout the reserve. Whether you visit Mashatu for the excitement of the big game viewing, the relaxation of unspoilt Africa or the quiet luxury of the camps, you will not be disappointed.

ELEPHANT VALLEY LODGE - Chobe

Print Email

Open guest area, a secluded hide, refreshing swimming pool and 20 ‘meru styled’ tents comple the lodge which lies beneath a forest of sturdy knob thorns.

It is within these tree tops that the largest colony of white back vultures occurs.

The lodge is unique for several reasons and amongst these is the fact that it is situated within a game rich reserve affording the guests wonderful sightings between our open landrover safaris into the Chobe and boat cruises along the Chobe River.

ELEPHANT VALLEY LODGE - Chobe Botswana

ELEPHANT VALLEY LODGE - Chobe Botswana

THE CAMP

The camp perimeter is fenced to keep the elephant from moving through the camp, instead now they move around the camp boundary, along their well worn paths to and from the Chobe River. Your tent also ensures that you are able to hear the multitude of night sounds as you drift away with vivid thoughts of the experiences of your day on safari.

Each of the tents features twin beds, ensuite shower and toilet, mini safe and fan.

ACTIVITIES

At Elephant Valley we have found that a morning cruise along the Chobe River provides a couple of distinct advantages they include the following; During the morning the river is distinctly less busy with fewer boats. This also permits a longer experience, assuming that sightings kept us busy, and we do not have to cut the trip short to get back before sunset. It does also permit a greater length of the river to be explored.

In the afternoons we have found that the Chobe National Park is conversely less busy and we are able to enjoy a sundowner along the river to capture the sunset on camera. It is also during the late afternoon that game becomes most active.
