Machaba Camp

Machaba Camp

"Wonderful introduction to Botswana wildlife"

3 nights Arrived 27 Apr 2016
"Warm welcome by staff. Nice to mix with different nationalities in camp. Good variation of wildlife on game drives. We have already expressed our concerns about intrusive chasing of a lion. Very happy with our guide Albert and the attention given by other staff.

From the camp write-up & speaking to Expert Africa we had expected to have inter-action/a visit to the nearby community and were disappointed to be told it was something not normally done."

"Excellent all round"

3 nights Arrived 30 Apr 2016
"Such cheerful, helpful staff. Always unobtrusively on hand for your slightest need.

We were extremely fortunate to have sole use of a vehicle most of the time on the game drives. Luke was an exceptional guide - always willing to stop and able to impart his extensive knowledge.

Pleased to make use of the shop and something which could be available at all camps??"

Kwetsani Camp

Kwetsani Camp

"Wonderful experience"

3 nights Arrived 3 May 2016
"We felt the management had a more relaxed approach to clients. The staff were not so interactive and more in the background.

Our guide Moyo was excellent although we would have preferred slower trips in the powered boat although we realise time was a constraint.

Extremely interesting to see the flood arriving and be able to go out in the mokoros

I (Sandra) was really pleased to see the ladies doing their basketry and for us to be able to purchase something.

We realise that we were very fortunate that Machaba, Chitabe Ledibe and Kwetsani camps were not at maximum capacity which enabled us to have an even better experience than expected."
