Day by Day Overview

Arrive Maun Airport for your light aircraft transfer to Khwai Airstrip for Machaba Camp. Overnight for 3 nights on a fully inclusive basis

Machaba Camp in Okavango Delta is aimed at the affordable luxury travel markets across the world. The name Machaba is the local Setswana name for the Sycamore Fig Tree, the tree of life. Machaba Camp offers great value for money and unique classical safari experience. Machaba Camp will appeal to the novice safari guest as well as to the seasoned safari traveler.

Machaba trees are renowned for their abundant fruit. Throughout the year the fruit feeds the elephant, baboons, bushbuck, green pigeons and many other species. Needless to say, Machaba Camp offers fantastic game viewing opportunities.

Mokoro safari
The Mokoro is a dugout canoe. Mokoro Safaris are poled by experienced guides in the shallower waters of the Okavango. Guests are treated to an intimate view of life within the waterways that create the biodiversity of the Okovango Delta. Mokoro safaris still showcase traditional wildlife encounters but also the quiet nature of the excursion highlights the birdlife and aquatic residents of the area. Mokoro excursions take place in the mornings.

Game drives
Game drives take place each morning & afternoon, and always depart from camp. Each drive will explore the river systems and plains around the camp and lasts approximately 3-hours. The wildlife in the area is prolific with excellent chances to see larger predators, herds of elephant, buffalo and all the plains animals that occur here. Night drives begin in the early evening and offer guests a chance to see smaller more nocturnal animals with spotlights.

Walking safaris
Morning walking safaris are conducted daily and are always accompanied by armed guides. Smaller, often overlooked, flora and fauna are the focus on moring walks. Walks are, as such, taken at a very leisurely pace. Please note, walking is both weather & guide dependent, and dependent on terrain conditions.
