Machaba Camp

Machaba Camp is situated in the game rich Khwai area, on the eastern tongue of the Okavango Delta, constructed on the same site as the previous Machaba camp. The name Machaba is the local Setswana name for the Sycamore Fig Tree, the tree of life. The camp is built in the classic 1950's 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.




Machaba Camp is independently owned and run, and is aimed at the affordable luxury travel markets across the world. Offering great value for money and a unique classical safari experience. Machaba Camp will appeal to the novice safari guest as well as to the seasoned safari traveller.
