Machaba Camp is one of the newest offerings along the Khwai Riverfront, having only opened in 2012. A member of the Expert Africa team first visited at the end of 2013, and we were thoroughly impressed with what we found. Guests at Machaba can expect a smart camp with 10 large classic tents stretching along the riverfront. The entire camp is shaded by a forest of sycamore figs and game frequently passes through on its way to drink from the river which is directly in front of the main area and tents. Machaba is very well run, with a relaxed but efficient feel to operations and guides who really know their stuff. 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.
