LITTLE MACHABA – KHWAI CONCESSION – OKAVANGO DELTA

Little Machaba is a very small and intimate tented camp situated in the game rich Khwai area – a 180 000 hectare reserve situated in the north eastern Okavango adjacent to the Moremi Game Reserve.

Little Machaba is situated on the same island as Machaba Main Camp but is run separately. The camp is built in the classic 1950’s style with luxury safari tents, ensuite bathrooms and romantic outdoor showers. All the tents and main areas are situated on decks with stunning views of the floodplains and the pathways to the tents meander between the large riverine trees.  There is a small swimming pool in camp.

The name Machaba is the local Setswana name for the Sycamore Fig Tree – the tree of life.  With just two twin tents and two family tents (see below photo) the camp is brilliant for a private and exclusive safari for a group of family or friends.  The camp welcomes children of all ages and is wheelchair friendly.

LOCATION

The camp is located in the Khwai Concession adjacent to the Moremi Game Reserve in the north east of the Okavango Delta in northern Botswana.

CAMP

Little Machaba has 2 luxury family safari tents and 2 luxury twin safari tents and the camp is deal for romantic travellers, honeymoon couples, or those who prefer a more private safari experience.

The tents have comfortable beds with superior quality mattresses and are dressed in natural fabrics and the finest of coverings. The ensuite luxury bathrooms have hot and cold running water, flush toilets and double vanity and both indoor and outdoor showers.  Taking a shower after a day of adventure in the wilds is one of the simple pleasures in life and locally produced bath products made from organic herbs and absorbent comforting towels make the experience even more special.

Each room is fitted with electrical lights, lamps and fans. The 220V International plug points can power charging stations, batteries and sleep apnoea machines but are not suitable for hairdryers and electric shavers.

The camp has two luxury family tents which each sleep 4 guests.

The main guest area is beautifully furnished with comfy chairs and sofas, coffee tabels on rugs and African artifacts and there is a separate indoor dining area and expansive decking to sit outside in good weather.  The camp has a small swimming pool overlooking the floodplains.

WILDLIFE AND ACTIVITIES

Machaba Camp is situated in the Khwai Concession on the Khwai river, bordering the Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta.

Mokoro safari – this is a dugout canoe poled by an experienced poler in the shallower waters of the Okavango Delta. It is a great way to see the waterways and is tranquil and quiet. These excursions take place in the mornings or longer day trips can be arranged. Explore the islands around camp and come back rested and rejuvenated.

Game drives – are conducted in the mornings and afternoon/evenings at camp.  They usually last about three hours each and concentrate along the river systems and flood plains around the camp. The wildlife in the area is prolific and chances are good to see some of the larger predators, herds of elephant and buffalo and all the plains animals that occur here. Night drives are conducted in the early evening offering the chance to see the smaller more nocturnal animals with spotlights.

Walking safaris – the walks are leisurely and time is taken to observe the smaller things in the bush that one normally misses when driving. Walking safaris are usually taken in the morning with armed guards and is dependent on the condition of the terrain and weather.

LITTLE MACHABA IS OPEN ALL YEAR ROUND

THE CAMP WELCOMES FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN AGED 12 YEARS AND OLDER.   THIS WILL BE WAIVED IF YOU BOOK THE WHOLE CAMP EXCLUSIVELY
