For a taste of luxury under canvas in the African bush, Machaba Camp offers a glorious location under the trees next to the River Khwai on the edge of Botswana's famous Okavango Delta.
Machaba Camp feels a bit like a mobile camp with its tented suites erected directly onto the soft sand of the floodplain. But it would take a convoy of large trucks to move this feast including huge beds, deep sofas in a full-sized lounge area, an en suite bathroom complete with romantic outdoor shower and a large covered porch area facing the river and its busy parade of wildlife.
The living area is also a tented expanse of barefoot luxury with just enough rustic charm to enhance the bush experience and just enough creature comforts - like fine dining and a swimming pool - to make it just that little bit special. The food, the service, the tranquil atmosphere all combine to make Machaba Camp a memorable safari experience.
The guides, as in all of Botswana's luxury safari camps, are excellent. With such creative names as Leopard and Custard, you know you're in for a treat of getting to know the true African character on top of your wilderness experience.
Machaba Camp is on the edge of the Okavango Delta giving you both water and land safari activities all year round. In addition to the wonderful setting and the prolific birdlife, animals you're likely to see on your game drives, walks and water safaris include elephant, lions, leopard, hyena, wild dog, jackal and many antelope and plains game.
Full board accommodation in 10 luxury tents; en suite bathrooms with flushing toilets and hot water plus an outdoor shower; private patio with a view of the river and floodplains; family tents with two extra beds; main living area with lounge, dining area, campfire and swimming pool; laundry; transfers
Morning and evening game drives; walking safaris; mokoro rides; library; village tours

Belmond Khwai River Lodge
On the outer edge of the Okavango delta, on the edge of a forest, overlooking a river. The Khwai River. Belmond Khwai River Lodge is here and just outside Moremi Game Reserve. You’re in the wild. You’re in their home. No fences, no kidding. Be alert. You could well be making eye contact with a wandering elephant. Or hippo.
Camp Moremi is a small and welcoming safari lodge in the Okavango Delta's Moremi Game Reserve on the edge of a large palm-infringed lagoon.
