The staff took wonderful care of us from the moment we got there. Kitso, our guide, Elcka , the general manager and the rest of the staff was really amazing. The camp itself is what's called "classic". It was set in the 1950's tented style,...More
Excellent camp with extremely helpful and friendly staff. The tents are superb and offer a great level of privacy, and the food is excellent. All the games drives are well organised, the guides very knowledgeable, and the wealth of wildlife is truly amazing. We had...More
The tent was very comfortable (extremely comfortable bed). Shower and flush toilet were rustic, but fine and what we expected for tent camping on safari. Our guide BT was very knowledgable and pleasant. We recommend taking a mokoro safari (dugout canoes) for a different experience....More

Hi Mike B, We spent 4 nights at Machaba last August - we only did the game drives (which by the way were fantastic), so I can't comment on the walking safari or mokoro ride. But I can tell you that mokoro rides are not done on the river at camp (too narrow and too many hippos), so there will undoubtedly be some travel involved to get to where the boats are. As for the pros/cons of a private vehicle - if it's within the budget, a private vehicle is definitely the way to go. There's no pressure on you to move off a sighting that perhaps only you would be interested in. And just having the flexibility of doing what you want to do on a drive, including what time you leave on the drive. Either way - you're in for a great time - enjoy!
