Machaba Camp

Machaba Camp

Named for the local sycamore fig tree known as the tree of life, Machaba Camp is a classic safari destination, preserving the vintage allure of the Okavango Delta. On the Khwai River overlooking the renowned Moremi Game Reserve, this special camp offers the best of a traditional tented safari experience with excellent accommodation, personalized service, and vast concentrations of diverse wildlife.

The camp’s ten luxury tents exude a warm contemporary style and encompass a living area, en-suite bathroom, romantic outdoor shower, and private veranda with exceptional views. Eight of the tents are twin tents, and two are luxury family tents. While children of all ages are welcome, a private vehicle will need to be booked for families with children under six years of age.

Machaba trees grow to heights of 65 feet and provide abundant fruit for numerous animals such as elephant, baboon, bush buck, and green pigeon. Morning and evening game drives offer intimate encounters with these and other magnificent species including lion, hyena, impala, leopard, wild dog, and hundreds of bird species. Guides are provided for drives, walks, and excursions in the local mokoro style (dug-out canoe). Relax and recharge at the camp’s pool which features spectacular views, catch up on some reading from the camp’s library, or visit the local community.

A recent guests says, “We absolutely loved every minute of our time at this amazing camp; even the 5:30am starts were smoothed over with a personal wake up call, coffee, and breakfast. The set-up is stunning, and the tents and overall environment is considered and natural without compromising on luxury. The food was plentiful, frequent, and delicious. And the game drives were just incredible. Even in the wet season, we got to see a range of game—lions, elephants, giraffe, zebra, hippos, and leopards on every single drive. And our guide was brilliant. He was knowledgeable about the area and the game, had a great sense of humor, and was an adventurous driver too! All the staff was friendly, helpful, and dedicated to making sure we had a great time, as well as being passionate about sharing their home in the bush."
