MACHABA CAMP


The name Machaba is the local Setswana name for the Sycamore Fig Tree, the tree of life. Machaba Camp will appeal to the novice safari guest as well as to the 
seasoned safari traveler. The camp is built in the classic 1950s style, with luxury safari tents, en-suite bathrooms and living areas, not forgetting the romantic outdoor showers. All the tents are situated at ground level, and the pathways to the tents meander between the large riverine trees.

The camp comprises of two luxury family safari tents, 
and eight luxury twin safari tents. The camp welcomes children of all ages, 
and is wheelchair friendly.

Activities and experiences at Machaba Camp include thrilling game drives, exploring
 the waterways by mokoro, and guided safari walks.

 

LITTLE MACHABA

Little Machaba Camp is situated on the same island as Machaba Camp
 and is run separately to the main camp.

A more intimate camp, with only four spacious safari tents, which are situated on decks and the pathways to the tents meander under large riverine trees with views over the wide plains frequented by herds of elephant,
 leading to the Khwai River.

Little Machaba has two luxury family safari tents, and two luxury twin 
safari tents — ideal for romantic travellers, honeymoon couples, or those who prefer a more private safari experience.

As all our Okavango camps are based in concessions, guests can experience wildlife closer with guided walking safaris, relaxed mokoro trips and night safari drives discovering the
 nocturnal side of the Okavango, ensuring your safari adventure is unique.

VERNEY’S CAMP

Latest edition to the Machaba Safaris family – Opening May 2018

Situated on the central side of the popular south eastern part of Hwange National Park, Verney’s Camp is a private concession of 10,000 hectares. It is in an extremely remote part of the National Park that is neither frequented, nor can it be accessed by regular Park visitors.

It is a beautiful amphitheater fringed by teak forest that opens up onto an impressive waterhole that is a playground to the famous elephant herds of Hwange. Verney’s joined the Machaba Safaris group in 2017 with a totally clean piece of unspoilt wilderness. Verney’s Camp is being built in keeping with Machaba Safaris’ winning recipe that matches the timeless wonder of a classic safari to Africa, aimed at the affordable luxury travel markets worldwide for both the novice and the well-seasoned safari traveller.
