Machaba Camp Location Map

Machaba Camp is situated in the game rich Khwai area,on the eastern tongue of the Okavango Delta, overlooking the famous Moremi Game Reserve. 

Independently owned and run, 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.

Morning and evening game drives are part of the experience at Machaba, and there is also the opportunity (depending on water levels) to go out on an adventure in a traditional dug out canoe (mokoro).  Walking safaris are also offered, subject to the availability of a qualified walking guide to accompany you. Or just relax around the swimming pool, with its wonderful views over the Khwai River. 

The camp is built in the classic 1950s 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.

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.

In addition Little Machaba Camp has 4 luxury tents including 2 family tents, and accommodates a maximum of 8 guests.
