I was there a month ago. Nice long tar strip. No fuel. The lodge you staying up will come fetch you. Either the customs guys will drive up from the border or the vehicle fetching you will drive you down to the border. Airfield is not manned.

What else are you wanting to know?

Just to be clear - that's Limpopo Valley airfield. Mashatu runway is grass and AFAIK overgrown and unusable.

Mashatu itself does not have an airfield (anymore).
They use FBLV Limpopo Valley
