What a place! Everything has been thought through, from the pool area with drinks, towels and loungers to the luxury tents with your own water bottle with your name on it awaiting your arrival. We landed at Khawi River strip and collected by Machaba's driver and were welcomed by a staff full of people. An easy and friendly check in,...

Our guide BT was very knowledgeable and great to spend time with. The food was delicious and the setting of the camp could not be better - right on the...

We were a group of 5 friends and Little Machaba was our first stop on an extended trip. We were lucky enough to have the camp to ourselves for the duration of the stay and what a stay is was! I cannot speak highly enough of the super friendly and efficient team who fulfilled wishes we didn't even know we...

This lodge is pure bliss, situated on the bank of the river, the elephants entertained us through the day.... The staff from management to waiters and everyone else made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. Our guide, suitably name " Leopard" was excellent and had us entertained from the moment we got on the game drive vehicle......

Machaba Lodge is a wonderful place in a beautiful location with plenty of wildlife around. We ended up here rather by chance since the lodge we had orginally planned to go to was fully booked. Machaba turned out to be the best experience of our ten days, however. The location is marvelous and there is indeed lots of elephants and...

Had Moss as guide. He provided some amazing opportunities to view the animals and birds. All the staff showed a willingness to make the experience as good as possible. If you want a safari experience then I strongly recommend Mochaba.

Cannot recommend this camp highly enough. A combination of the feel of an old style safari camp complete with over stuffed furniture and memorabilia from a bygone age in the lounge, the attentative camp staff, the hot coal warmed dinners and of course the fabulous game drives. Our guide Sean was always bubbling with enthusiasm and found us wonderful sightings...
