Little Machaba

Little Machaba is a classic safari-style camp with luxury tented rooms containing en-suite bedroom with modern bathroom, patio deck and relaxation area, and a romantic outdoor bathtub and shower. The tents are built on decks that are linked to the main area by a pathway that winds through the riverine trees. With a maximum capacity of 8 guests and a dedicated team of staff, Little Machaba is the epitome of an intimate and personal safari experience.

Modern 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.

Roughing it meets comfort

Feel close to nature with only a layer of canvas between you and the wilds, but enjoy the luxuries of electric lamps, fans, mini safes and running hot and cold water.

Luxurious outdoor bathtub

You can soak up the romance and luxury of spectacular views and wildlife from the comfort of a freestanding bathtub located on a secluded deck alongside your tent.

Watch the wildlife pass your tent

The private patio area in front of your tent provides the perfect viewing spot from which to watch the African bush unfold in front of you.

Elevated decks

The luxury safari tents in this camp are built on elevated wooden decks which raise the tents and pathways off the ground and provide great viewing platforms to enjoy the views and wildlife around the camp

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.

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 don’t have any permanent structural fixtures and rely on solar energy, forgoing energy-heavy appliances such as shavers, air-conditioning and hairdryers.

  • Electric lights, fans and charging stations
  • International 220v plug points

Testimonials

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.
