Machaba Camp

Situated on the eastern tongue of the Okavango Delta in the game rich Khwai area overlooking the Moremi Game Reserve is Machaba Camp. Built along the beautiful riverine tree-line of the Khwai River, this child friendly tented camp boasts instant game viewing from its prime river front setting. The main camp area is open-plan under one long tent with roll up sides. There is a comfortable lounge with large sofas and an indoor dining area; both offer picturesque views and open out to a sandy bush clearing with fireside space and river views. The camp also boasts a swimming pool with sun loungers.
