Machaba Camp

Okavango Delta, Botswana

Make Machaba Camp part of your safari from

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 Machaba tree abounds in the Okavango Delta and most African riverine forests.

Machaba trees are renowned for their abundant fruit, which feed a vast array of animals throughout the year, including elephant, baboons, bush buck, green pigeons and many more.

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.
