Located on the Eastern tongue of the Okavango Delta in a private concession overlooking the Moremi Game Reserve is the sophisticated and stylish Machaba Camp. The setting is exquisite and guests will (and frequently do!) fall in love with the understated and elegant colonial architecture of Machaba. Wake up to the sounds of hippo wallowing in the Delta and enjoy outdoor dining on the banks of the Khwai. Ten luxury tents with en-suite bathrooms and outdoor showers are located between towering riverine trees. Each tent has tantalising views of the Delta and the Moremi Game Reserve beyond. The large and pretty verandas are a perfect place to watch the daily parade of animals coming down to drink at the river in front of camp. For families, there are two 2-bedroomed tents which are very large and well designed with a lovely central sitting area and shared bathroom.
There are 3 different types of safari activities available at Machaba including morning and afternoon game drives which drive along the river systems and flood plains around camp. Expect to see terrific wildlife in this area with regular reports of herds of elephant, buffalo, lion and leopard. Machaba also offers walking safaris which generally take place in the morning with an armed guide. This is a lovely and gentle way to observe the smaller inhabitants of the bush! Lastly, depending on water levels, there are mokoro rides available in the mornings to explore the islands around camp.
A fabulous all-rounder!
