Little Machaba Game Viewing and Activities
Little Machaba is designed to offer its guests a personalised and intimate safari experience. With only eight people in camp at a time, everything from meal times to boma evenings to game drives or bush walks are a private experience with every attention to detail. The wildlife viewing is some of the best in southern Africa, so guests can expect to see a full variety of predators and the megafauna Botswana is famous for. Buffalo, zebra, elephant, giraffe, hyena, lion, and leopard are some of the most popularly spotted and photographed animals in the area and can be seen from the comfort of camp when not cruising through the wilderness on game drive. Bush walks are offered, as are mokoro excursions when water levels allow. There is a swimming pool for relaxing during the day, and massage and facial treatments that can be enjoyed in the privacy of guests’ own rooms or out on the deck.
