Deka Camp

Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe

Resting in the far northwest of Hwange National Park, Deka Camp is probably the most remote camp in the park. Given that the camp is on a private concession, our guests can enjoy night drives, walking safaris and game drives in one of the wildest areas in Southern Africa.

Canvas Rock Thatch Units

Canvas, rock and thatch units

Inspired by the natural surroundings, each of the camp’s 8 units is crafted using canvas, local rock and sustainable thatching. The overall feeling is of a camp that rests comfortably within its incredibly remote and untouched surroundings.

Remote Hwange

The remote northwest of Hwange

Deka camp basks on the crest of a low foothill in the majestic Hwange National Park. The never-ending African sky is complemented by the Deka floodplains and seeps that lie below the camp and form the headwaters of the great Deka River.

Big Herds

Big country and big herds of wildlife

The terrain in which Deka Camp lies attracts diverse wildlife including large herds of elephants. The open country is good for spotting cheetah and wild dogs and at night, lion and hyena calls often ring through the air.

All the comfort without the frills

Machaba Camps 97
Machaba Safaris achieves a balance of maximum guest comfort and minimal impact on the environment.

What does this mean?

Machaba Safaris combines the authenticity of the past, the comforts of today and a future-thinking eco-awareness. Our camps feature iconic canvas tents, cooling plunge pools and communal bars and dining areas and reading nooks. We consciously forgo certain conveniences like hairdryers and air-con, and rely on alternative energy to lighten our load on the planet.

How we lighten the load
  • Camp electricity is a hybrid of solar energy and a back-up generator.
  • Low energy consuming appliances and light bulbs.
  • No permanent fixtures means that our campsites can be rehabilitated in 1.5 years.
  • Separate Bio Plants manage kitchen, laundry and staff village solids.
