Machaba Camp is named after the sycamore fig tree, which is found in large numbers on the island where the camp sits, shaded by these beautiful trees. Machaba is in the wildlife-rich Khwai river region of the Okavango Delta.
Accommodation & Facilities
Machaba camp has eight double safari tents and two family tents with two bedrooms. The tents are a classic Meru style, and all have ensuite bathrooms with flush loos and showers, and shaded verandahs at the front. The camp has a large mess tent which features a lounge and bar, as well as a dining room. Meals are, however, eaten outside whenever possible, in the shade of a tree or under the stars.
Wildlife & Activities
Machaba Camp offers guests day and night game drives, walking safaris, and, if water levels permit, mokoro (dug-out canoe) trips. The wildlife in the vicinity is prolific, with lion, wild dog, leopard, hippo, and large herds of elephant and buffalo to be seen, along with numerous species of antelope, zebra and giraffe. Thanks to the varied habitats here the bird life is amazing too.
