This camp is a 'must-do'. Absolutely fantastic!!! All small details were taken care of. Excellent food and drinks at the campfire. Elephants drinking and swimming just outside your tent. Great game drives: wild dogs (with puppies), leopards, hyena's (with cubs), elephants, giraffes, ostriches, zebra's, hippo's, crocs, buffalo's, lots of birds, too much to mention!!! Thanks Sean, Elke and your team for this great time we had at the Khwai River. The Wulff-family

Room Tip: All rooms had a river view.

beautiful setting overlooking a river with wild game there most of the time. The tents are decorated beautifully, subtlely. Very comfortable beds. Hot water bottles offered at night if needed. You can rest midday, between safari options, in comfortable overstuffed chairs and look out at the river, private, quiet. Food is excellent, cooked onsight, and served family style outside overlooking the river.

Guides are knowlegeable, two outings offered per day. Option of river trip or jeep.
Behind the scenes, they have state of the art energy production, working towards green management.

Hosts are attentive, respectful, warm and caring. They attend to many details that make a fine trip.

Room Tip: All tents, with VERY comfortable beds, blankets, seating. Farther from main area may be quieter, bu...

A few of us have travelled extensively throughout Africa for many years. We have stayed in rustic bush camps all the way through to the most luxurious accommodation Africa has to offer. I must say that Machaba is right up there with the best there is! From the accommodation, food, guides, friendly staff all the way through to the spectacular game viewing, we had a trip of a lifetime! The game viewing is mind blowing, with us seeing Leopard, Cheetah, Wild dogs, serval and obviously all the other 'usual' general game. We heard lions outside our tents for 2 nights and leopard! We had elephants drinking from the Khwai river right in front of our tent!! The food is so delicious, you wont believe that you are in the middle of nowhere!! Our aim was to track leopards with the Leopard ID Project ( www.leopardIDproject.com), hosted by Completely Unique Safaris (www.CompletelyUniqueSafaris.com). they not only met our expectations, but far exceeded them!! As I said, we have travelled extensively for years and the combination of Machaba and Completely unique Safaris is unbeatable from an experience point of view. On top of this, Machaba fully supports the Leopard ID Project Southern Africa and going on such a trip while knowing you're contributing to conservation is amazing! This tailor made experience cannot be had anywhere else, with anyone else!!! Thank you so much to Machaba and all it's staff for making it a really memorable trip and for welcoming us with such open arms to their family!! We'll definitely be back again SOON! And we won't ever travel to Africa again, unless it's with Completely Unique Safaris, they're THAT good!

Room Tip: All roms are great, they even have to family rooms. Room 1 is close to the pool for summer months.

I just finished a fantastic trip to Botswana and Machaba Camp. The camp was a perfect integration of luxury and wildlife. The decor, staff, food and wildlife were all phenomenal. The expert guides tracked animals and we were able see everything from wild dogs, to hyenas, to lions. Nice touches such as a swimming pool, beautiful riverfront location, morning and evening campfires and friendly and accommodating staff made the trip to Machaba Camp perfect. Highly recommend Machaba Camp for anyone looking for an exhilerating safari trip to Botswana!

Room Tip: Camp has both family tents and individual tents.

We spent 3 nights of luxury and excellent game viewing. Excellent photos of wild dog, hyena and every possible image of hippo and elephant. Birds galore. All of this at "low season".

Staff were super friendly and food fantastic.

Nice tents and great little swimming pool overlooking the river for where elephant and hippo were regularly on show.

Room Tip: Any tent is good.

A beautiful, well apointed tented camp. Decor was stunning - stylish and VERY comfortable in both "rooms" and central area which overlooks the Kwai River. Candle light dining under the stars and a full moon complete the picture. Good game viewing and attentive staff. A very relaxing and service orientated camp. Highly reccommended. Only negative was our guide who didn't impart much knowledge.

Room Tip: All rooms are private and well appointed.
