Machaba Camp is an independently owned and run camp designed to recreate the style of a 1950's camp, with spacious canvas tents, attractive wooden furniture, decor in soothing, muted tones and beds and sofas strewn with cushions. This, combined with the warm welcome of the staff, will make you feel instantly at home at Machaba   

This is a prime game viewing area and you'll be offered morning and evening safaris to make the most of your time here. Night drives are also possible and are a fascinating introduction to the nocturnal wildlife. Other activities include nature walks and mokoro rides, though these depend on local conditions.

The large lounge tent is the social heart of the camp. This is where you'll rest between drives, chatting over a chilled drink or catching up with some reading. You'll be able to watch wildlife at the river. Outdoors there's a lovely swimming pool and a sundeck. Meals are generally eaten communally in the open air and at night you'll dine by candle and lamp light.

Machaba's tents are set along the banks of the Khwai River and Moremi Game Reserve, with views of the ever-changing wildlife. They are very spacious, with comfy beds, a sitting room, en-suite bathroom and an open air shower. To the front of each tent there's a veranda, ideal for secluded relaxation and wildlife watching

Would have loved to stay there longer, all the staff were so lovely. And, they made Dave’s 60th bday special.
