However, Mashatu comprises 40% of the Northern Tuli Game Reserve and it shares unfenced borders with both South African and Zimbabwean national Parks in the south and north respectively.

Mashatu is a sanctuary to the largest, single population of elephants on privately owned land. The population on Mashatu alone is estimated at approximately 700 elephants.
