This is your chance to explore Botswana’s prized jewel, the Okavango Delta. Over 11,000 km3 of seasonal floodwater travels from the neighbouring Angola Highlands to fill this inland river basin, home to more than 2,000 plants, 450 bird, 65 fish and over 200,000 large mammal species. It’s widely acknowledged as the predator capital of the world and the region promises up-close views of unique wildlife and flourishing vegetation. Perched on the edge of the Okavango Delta, Machaba Camp offers the dual advantage of viewing large wildlife populations and exploring the tributaries of the Delta’s outer reaches in a mokoro canoe.
