Visit Hwange National Park
An hour’s drive from Victoria Falls, this package takes in the largest Park in Zimbabwe. At 14,600 square kilometre in size, Hwange National Park is home to the “Presidential Herd” of elephants and the iconic giraffe is a common sighting. The vast space the ideal way in which to immerse yourself in the authentic spirit of a safari.
Meet the local people
A traditional safari is not limited to spotting animals. It is about embracing new cultures too. Which is why this package includes an outing to one of the many schools and communities that we have formed relationships with where you can experience the warm hospitality that the people of Africa are known for.
See the endangered African wild dogs
The African wild dog – also known as the “painted dog” for its attractive colouring – is one of the most endangered animals in the continent. This package includes an outing to Zimbabwe’s Painted Dog Conservation Centre to meet with the volunteers who are working hard to save these fascinating social creatures from extinction.
Our packages are inclusive of meals, selected drinks, activities and internal flights
At a glance
Discover what makes each camp so interesting and what you can do while there. It could be a flood plain, water pan, woodlands forest, rocky outcrop or vast open lands – each Machaba Safaris destination has features that make it extra, extra special.
Deteema Springs sits on a basalt outcrop overlooking seeps. From the comfort of your tent, you can watch the animals follow the centuries-old elephant trails that lead to the crystal clear water of the springs.
Inspired by safaris of the past, Verney’s Camp is situated in a teak forest that is synonymous with Hwange. With views over a waterhole, the animals put on a daily parade as they come down for their evening drink.
The accommodations were so clean and comfortable, overlooking the pan. We fell asleep and awoke to the beautiful sounds of nature.
From the minute you walk into Deteema Springs you are treated like royalty. The tents are beautifully decorated and have the most wonderful view over the dam and natural spring. You don't have to venture anywhere to see herds of elephant drinking and bathing right in front of you.
From the moment we entered the camp we were blown away! There is no place on earth that has taken my breath away like Verney's camp. The elephants, in the hundreds are right there! Right outside your luxury tent. And talk about glamping! I could live like this everyday.
