Little Machaba Camp is the charming smaller sister camp to Machaba Camp, set in a scenic spot overlooking the Khwai River in the game lively Khwai concession in the east of the Okavango. This is a classic tented camp in the style of the traditional 1950’s safari, simple but sophisticated and extremely comfortable.

ACTIVITIES AT LITTLE MACHABA CAMP
Little Machaba and Machaba Main Camp are located on the same island but run independently of each other.
Mokoro safari The Mokoro is a dugout canoe. Mokoro Safaris are poled by experienced guides in the shallower waters of the Okavango. Guests are treated to an intimate view of life within the waterways that create the biodiversity of the Okovango Delta. Mokoro safaris still showcase traditional wildlife encounters but also the quiet nature of the excursion highlights the birdlife and aquatic residents of the area. Mokoro excursions take place in the mornings.
Game drives Game drives take place each morning & afternoon, and always depart from camp. Each drive will explore the river systems and plains around the camp and lasts approximately 3-hours. The wildlife in the area is prolific with excellent chances to see larger predators, herds of elephant, buffalo and all the plains animals that occur here. Night drives begin in the early evening and offer guests a chance to see smaller more nocturnal animals with spotlights.
Walking safaris Walking safaris are conducted daily and are always accompanied by armed guides. Walks take place in the morning. Smaller, often overlooked, flora and fauna are the focus on moring walking safaris. Walks are, as such, taken at a very leisurely pace. Please note, walking is both weather & guide dependent, and dependent on terrain conditions.
