Little Machaba is a vintage chic camp, mimicking a classic 1950s style. Find yourself secluded in the game rich Khwai area, an Okavango Delta reserve close to the Moremi Game Reserve.
At Little Machaba, four luxury tents are connected by decks that meander through the trees. Two tents are suited for families, allowing your little ones a chance to quench their thirst for exploration early in life. En-suite bathrooms are a welcome treat after a long day on safari. Feel the refreshing water touch your face in the outdoor shower. Game viewing is a cinch from your private tent overlooking a floodplain—a hot spot for elephants roaming through the golden grass. With space for just eight explorers, the view will always be pleasant and peaceful.
From the bar’s wooden deck, watch majestic elephants on the large flood plain. Kick back on the poolside loungers or take a cooling dip. You can always unwind further with a massage and facial in the privacy of your room. Indulge in afternoon tea to refuel before an afternoon game drive.
Afternoon and evening game drives take you to the flood plains and rivers around the camp. Large predators and herds of elephants and buffaloes are frequent guests. Nighttime game drives reveal nocturnal animals as they scurry in the spotlight and lions roar into the darkness.
In the calm mornings, head out for a guided walk to find the smaller creatures of the bush that you may otherwise not see during a game drive. Go gliding in a mokoro, led through the tranquil shallow waters of the Okavango Delta by an experienced poler. The waterways lap against small islands teeming with fluttering birds and floating white lily blooms. Hippos show off their gaping mouths in a wide yawn.
Feed your appetite with local cuisine at Little Machaba. The Botswana-based chefs refer to this as “bushfare” and it’s best enjoyed alfresco under the stars, twinkling overhead like tiny diamonds in the inky African sky.
