Kiri Camp

Okavango Delta, Kiri River

Kiri Camp offers a combination of both game drives and water activities (water & flood dependant). Based on a private concession, these activities will take you to some of the more remote areas in the delta, previously inaccessible. A motorboat ride during peak flood times promises to enthrall you and captivate you, with the chance of seeing iconic wildlife from the river. Glide on quiet mokoro’s through the water lilies and view wildlife from below as you sail along at water level height. The wildlife in the Kiri area is diverse and plentiful, renown for its lion and buffalo interactions and rare wild dog numbers. As Kiri Camp is in a private concession, off road and night driving are allowed, as are armed nature walks through the surrounding islands with knowledgeable guides.

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.
