Little Machaba

Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana

Silver price level

Mango Opinion

Little Machaba is a tiny four room camp located in a game rich, albeit traffic heavy area. The camp is great for families and small groups and despite the location alongside a fair number of other camps, offers a fabulous year round safari.

Little Machaba is a traditional safari-style camp in the game-rich Khwai concession in the northeastern region the Okavango Delta. While it shares the same island as Machaba Camp, it is a much smaller, more intimate camp that is also built on raised decks. The oversized tented deck area forms the social hub of the camp. You can swap stories at the bar, relax in the lounge or gather around the large fire pits to swap stories, fueling the feeling of being on an authentic African safari in the bush.

Little Machaba Camp offers a luxury safari camp with just 4 spacious safari tents, en-suite bathrooms and living areas, not forgetting the romantic outdoor showers. All the tents are situated on decks and the pathways to the tents meander between the large riverine trees. The Main dining and bar area are also on wooden decks overlooking a large flood plain. Africa is a sun-drenched country where summer temperatures often reach the high thirties and low forty-degrees Celsius. After a morning safari, counting the passing clouds while floating in a pool or resting on a sun bed is nothing short of sublime.

The Khwai Concession is situated in the north eastern Okavango adjacent to the Moremi Game Reserve. Activities include morning & evening game drives, walking safaris, mokoros (year round, water dependent), game viewing from the comfort of your own tent, visits to the local community, and after dinner night drives.
