Nestled within the riverine vegetation along the Khwai River, the camp boasts on-going animal sightings due to its prime setting. Built in the classic 1950s style, it has the charming safari feel of a bygone era, and attractive furnishings throughout. Little Machaba is ideal for small groups looking for exclusivity and consists of 4 luxury tents, two of which are for families (children under 12 welcome when camp is booked on exclusive-use basis).
Spacious and constructed on elevated platforms, the feature basic electricity and private verandahs from where guests can make the most of the flood plain views. Meandering forest pathways link to the open-plan main areas ideal for socialising or dining whilst absorbing the picturesque scenery. A pool affords welcome relief during warm days.
The food served at Little Machaba is a wonderful mixture of local cuisine flavoured and cooked in good old fashion home style cooking. Little Machaba like to call this bushfare. The chefs come from Botswana and try to set up meals under the stars at night and vary dining experiences with every meal.
Activities include morning and afternoon game drives (off-roading and night drives permitted), visits to the local community and short mokoro excursions (water-dependent). Guided walks are subject to the availability of a qualified walking guide.
