Opened in 2013, Machaba Camp is one of the newest offerings along the Khwai riverfront, looking across to the Moremi Game Reserve. The camp lies to the east of the concession, on the site of the old Machaba Camp: a tranquil, open spot along the river, backed by a sparse forest of sycamore figs, and with plenty of wildlife. Botswana owned and run, it is spacious yet traditional in feel, and very comfortable.
Our view of Machaba Camp
Since our first visited to Machaba in 2013 we have been 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 superb value. Although the Khwai area can sometimes feel busy by the standards of Botswana’s private concessions, Machaba is located in a relatively quiet region, and offers game drives in both the Khwai Community Concession and the Moremi Game Reserve opposite
