Machaba Camp is one of the newest offerings along the Khwai Riverfront, having only opened in 2013. That said, visitors familiar with the area might well remember the old Machaba Camp on whose foundations this latest iteration is built. A member of the Expert Africa team first visited at the end of 2013 and we were thoroughly impressed with what we found. A combination of excellent, hands-on management, very good guiding, a secluded location and fantastic game viewing all combine to make this an excellent value camp.
Our view of Machaba Camp
Machaba is very well run, with a relaxed but efficient feel to operations and guides who really know their stuff and clearly enjoy their job. Activities here revolve around 4WD game drives and although the Khwai area can sometimes feel busy by Botswana's standards, Machaba is located in a much quieter and less visited region further east along the boundary with Moremi Game Reserve. Accommodation at Machaba re-defines the meaning of the word ‘tent’ with en-suite, spacious and very sturdy structures classically decorated to a very high standard.
