Welcome inside

Deka Camp

The remote location of Deka Camp does not mean a compromise in eco comfort. Fashioned out of canvas, local rock and topped with a thatched roof, each of the 8 luxury units features an en-suite bedroom with modern bathroom, relaxation area and private patio. Deka Camp is the ideal breakaway location for those looking to immerse themselves in the remote and untamed wilds.

Immersed in the wilds

Sleeping under the stars in an eco-luxury tent is an authentic way in which to see, hear and smell the African wilds without forgoing conveniences such as a luxury bed and linen and a full bathroom.

In-tent electricity and plug points

Our tents have 220V plug points which can be used to power fans, lamps and charge batteries for electronic devices. This voltage, however, is not suitable for hairdryers, electric shavers or other high power consuming appliances.

Comfortable beds with superior linen

A good bed is essential. We dress our premium quality mattresses in breathable natural fabrics to make sure that your every night is a good night.

En suite bathrooms

Every eco-luxury tent has an en suite bathroom with hot and cold running water, a double basin vanity, an indoor shower, flush toilets and locally sourced bath products.

Our room design philosophy

A pleasing balance between style, comfort and environment

We design each room to maximise privacy and optimise views of the land and we take our decor inspiration from a traditional African safari in terms of the fabrics, texture and hues that we use. We pair this feeling of opulence with consideration for the environment, which is why we rely on solar water heating and solar energy, forgoing energy-heavy appliances such as shavers, air-conditioning and hairdryers.

From The Team

Essentials and Amenities

Staying in a luxury safari tent

Staying in a safari tent immerses you into the wilds without compromising on the comfort and safety of a luxury room. Your ears will tune into the light rustlings of leaves or the distant roar of the mighty king of the veld. The wind gently catches and snaps the canvas and the air is alive with scented bushveld air. Being this close to nature evokes feelings of oneness and belonging. Africa is the birthplace of humankind, and a visit to Machaba Safaris feels like coming home.
