Mashatu Game Reserve is a wholly preserved and untainted wilderness in eastern Botswana, at the confluence of the Limpopo and Shashe Rivers. The ample plains range from savannah, to riverine forests, marshland, and sandstone outcrops. Mashatu, ‘Land of Giants’ takes its name from the locally-sacrosanct Mashatu tree and the giants that roam the terrain. This is where Pete’s Pond is so famously situated and where thousands of pondies reside everyday.

National Geographic used to host the LIVE camera but WildEarth took it over in May 2011. A group of ‘zoomies’ (all of whom are ‘pondies’) from all over the world take it in turns to man the camera and zoom in on the interesting things.
With a bit of patience you can expect to see anything from elephants coming for a drink to a Monitor lizard roaming the side of the Pond. And from the antics of vervet monkeys and baboons to fishing Hamerkop birds.
