About Little Machaba Camp
Little Machaba is situated on the same island as Machaba Main Camp, but is run separately from Machaba Main Camp. Little Machaba is situated in the game rich Khwai area. The Khwai Concession is a 180 000 hectare reserve situated in the north eastern Okavango adjacent to the Moremi Game Reserve.
The camp is built in the classic 1950âs style, with luxury safari tents, en-suite bathrooms and living areas, not forgetting the romantic outdoor showers. All the tents are situated on decks and the pathways to the tents meander between the large riverine trees. The Main dining and bar area are also on wooden decks overlooking a large flood plain.
The food served at camp is a wonderful mixture of local cuisine flavoured and cooked in good old fashion home style cooking. We call this bushfare. Our chefs come from Botswana and have many years working in the tourism industry preparing fine meals. We try and eat under the stars at night and vary our dining experiences with every meal.
