The tents are decorated in a classic safari style incorporating the land and water of the Okavango delta which make up this beautiful land. Luxurious, comfortable, classic. All rooms have hot and cold running water, inside and outside showers, flush toilets and twin his and her basins. The area is known for its large concentrations of wildlife which thrive on the Gomoti plains and waterways. Game drives are conducted in the mornings and afternoon/evenings at camp. They usually last about three hours each and are conducted along the river systems and flood plains around the camp. The wildlife in the area is prolific and chances are good to see some of the larger predators, herds of elephant and buffalo and all the plains animals that occur here. Night drives are conducted in the early evening offering one a chance to see the smaller more nocturnal animals with spotlights. Walking safaris are also conducted generally in the morning with armed guides. The walks are leisurely and time is taken to observe the smaller things in the bush that one normally misses when driving. Walking is weather dependent, or dependent on the condition of the terrain. Just 18 km south of Chitabe Camp, Gomoti Plains Camp is waiting to spoil you with its classical comfort and amazing wildlife. Travel the waterways by motor boat and mekoro and traverse the Gomoti plains enthralling in the dense wildlife concentrations of the Gomoti area.

Machaba trees are renowned for their abundant fruit, which feed a vast array of animals throughout the year, including elephant, baboons, bush buck, green pigeons and many more. The camp is built in the classic 1950’s style, with luxury safari tents, en-suite bathrooms and living areas, not forgetting the romantic outdoor showers. All the tents are situated on the ground and the pathways to the tents meander between the large riverine trees. All 10 luxury tents are situated in the beautiful riverine tree line on the Khwai River, overlooking the famous Moremi Game Reserve. From these tented verandas one can watch the daily parade of animals coming down to drink at the river in front of camp. The camp consists of 8 luxury twin tents and 2 luxury family tents. The food served at camp is a wonderful mixture of local cuisine flavoured and cooked in good old fashion home style cooking. You’ll enjoy a variety of dining experiences with every meal including dining under the stars at night. Machaba Camp is independently owned and run, and is currently headed up by Chris Kruger, previously from Wilderness Safaris Botswana. Chris brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience in Botswana and across southern Africa, where he has been plying his trade for the last 30 years.
