Machaba Camp

Machaba Camp is situated in the game rich Khwai area, on the eastern tongue of the Okavango Delta in Botswana, and is 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.

Machaba trees are renowned for their abundant fruit, which feed a vast array of animals throughout the year, including elephant, baboons, bush buck, green pigeons and many more. The classic 1950's style camp features a relaxing swimming pool with loungers, a library, dining tent and main tent area.

Machaba Tented Rooms

The camp was built to resemble the classic 1950's style, with luxury safari tents, en-suite bathrooms and living areas, not forgetting the romantic outdoor showers.

All 10 luxury tents are situated on the ground with pathways that meander between the large riverine trees along 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.

Activities at Machaba Camp

Activities at Machaba Camp include morning and evening daily game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles, canoeing river trips, guiding walking safaris for a rare opportunity to see the African bush up close and cultural visits to local communities.
