Machaba Camp is situated in the game rich Khwai area, on the eastern tongue of the Okavango Delta. The name Machaba is the local Setswana name for the Sycamore Fig Tree, the tree of life. The Machaba tree abounds in the Okavango Delta and most African riverine forests. Machaba trees are renowned for their abundant fruit, which feed a vast array of animals throughout the year, including elephant, baboons, bush buck, green pigeons and many more. All 10 luxury tents are situated in the beautiful riverine treeline on the Khwai River, overlooking the famous Moremi Game Reserve. From these tented verandas one can watch the daily parade of animals coming down to drink at the river in front of camp. The camp consists of 8 luxury twin tents and 2 luxury family tents. Children of all ages are welcome at the camp; however a private vehicle will need to be booked for families with children under the age of 6 years old. Machaba Camp is independently owned and run and is aimed at the affordable luxury travel markets across the world, offering great value for money and a unique classical safari experience.

Our tailor made safari adventure.
On my first visit to Bench Africa I was asked where I wanted to go, how much was my budget and how long I had to do it. The itinerary offered with a few tweaks was perfect. We had 4 weeks and I particularly wanted to spend time in Capetown, Namibia and Botswana and of course to see Victoria Falls. We wanted to see the countryside, landscape and of course as many of the animals as we could.
The accommodation was 3 - 4 star and excellent. It was diverse, no camp was alike, all were lovely and fitted into their environment in a suitable manner. The staff at the camps were knowledgable, friendly and wonderful ambassadors for their country. We felt privileged to be their guests. Our driver/guide on our 10day safari in Namibia was Peter who went above and beyond our expectations. We loved the”Magic Box” picnics and sundowners. He epitomized all that good and wonderful about Namibia. Thank you Ultimate Safaris and in particular Peter.
Who could not be impressed by Victoria Falls in flood. Wow! Yes we did get drenched. Spectacular!
