Machaba Camp is situated in the game rich Khwai area, on the eastern tongue of the Okavango Delta, constructed on the same site as the previous Machaba camp. The name Machaba is the local Setswana name for the Sycamore Fig Tree, the tree of life. The Machaba tree abounds in the Okavango Delta and most African riverine forests.
All 10 luxury tents are situated in the beautiful riverine treeline on the Khwai River, overlooking the famous Moremi Game Reserve. From these tented verandas one can watch the daily parade of animals coming down to drink at the river in front of camp. The camp consists of 8 luxury twin tents and 2 luxury family tents.
The camp is built in the classic 1950's style, with luxury safari tents, en-suite bathrooms and living areas, not forgetting the romantic outdoor showers. All the tents are situated on the ground and the pathways to the tents meander between the large riverine trees.
Guests can relax under the trees and stars to enjoy their excellent meals served by the friendly staff. There is also a mess tent on the property.
Machaba has a game-viewing hide overlooking the river at which guests can be dropped off, and then collected again at a pre-arranged time. Other activities at Machaba centre around two game drives per day. The Khwai area is a big game experience - Buffalo, Elephant, Lion, Zebra, Wildebeest, Giraffe and many different species of antelope abound. The area offers a blend of open grasslands, seasonal floodplains and the permanent water of the Khwai River system.
