Mashatu is known as the 'Land of Giants' and takes its name from the locally-sacrosanct Mashatu tree and the giants that roam its terrain. As one of the largest private game reserve in southern Africa, Mashatu is, at 25 000 ha (75 000 acres), the ideal location for the world's largest land mammal, the elephant, with the largest herds on privately owned land on earth. Mashatu also provides sanctuary to the world's tallest mammal, the giraffe, the world's largest antelope, the eland, the world's largest bird, and the ostrich and of course, the world's heaviest flying bird, the kori bustard. Add the lion, the king of the beasts and the iconic baobab. Mashatu is an extraordinary place and holds ecological diversity uncommon in other reserves. Mashatu also hosts three members of the Big Five; leopard, lion and elephant and some of the more surprising species include the aardwolf, bat-eared fox, African wild cat, honey badger and black-backed jackal. Recently introduced to Mashatu (as part of the Northern Tuli Game Reserve) is the endangered wild dog. Mashatu is also an ornithological paradise, and plays host to more than 350 bird species, including the enchanting lilac-breasted roller.
