Little Machaba

Discover Little Machaba

A glimpse into the classic 1950s safari life, Little Machaba is situated in the Khwai Concession of the Okavango Delta. The luxurious camp overlooks a large floodplain and sits in a game-rich area of the Khwai area, ensuring a truly magical safari experience.

The camp shares an island with Machaba Main Camp, but the wild forest in-between creates a whole different atmosphere. Relax by the swimming pool, read up on wildlife in the camp library, or treat yourself to an in-room spa treatment; Little Machaba caters to everyone. The camp offers 4 luxury tents, including 2 family tents, with en-suite bathrooms and living areas, complete with outdoor showers. The tents are all set up on decks, connected by pathways weaving between the large riverine trees. Spend time relaxing in your private lounge or relax on the main tent's deck and enjoy the 'bushfare'. With a mix of old-fashioned home cooking and local flavors, enjoy your authentic Botswana meal under the stars.

Honeymoon offer: Stay 5 nights at any Machaba Camp and the bride receives a 50% discount on accommodation. This offer is valid until 30 December 2024. Terms and conditions apply.
