Machaba Camp is situated in the wildlife-rich Khwai area, on the eastern tongue of the Okavango delta. 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; they are renowned for their abundant fruit, which feed a vast array of animals throughout the year, including elephants, baboons, bush bucks, green pigeons and many more. The camp is built in a classic 1950s style, with luxury safari tents, en suite bathrooms and living areas, not forgetting the romantic outdoor showers. All 10 luxury tents are situated in the beautiful riverine treeline on the Khwai river, overlooking the celebrated Moremi Game Reserve. From the tented verandas you can watch the daily parade of animals coming down to drink at the river in front of camp.
Activities include wildlife drives, guided walks and visits to the local community.
