New luxury camp to open in Okavango Delta

Posted on 21 May 2024 By Savanna Douglas

Monachira Camp is the Okavango Delta’s newest luxury camp in the Moremi Game Reserve. 

May 2025 will mark the opening of Machaba Safaris’ newest luxury camp, situated on the edge of the Monachira channel, in the northeast region of the Moremi Game Reserve in Okavango Delta.

The camp, raised on the wooden decks that offer a view of the floodplains and wetlands of the Monachira river channel, will be the base for guests to explore the greater Okavango area.

The luxury camp will offer boating excursions, unique mokoro safaris, guided nature walks (age 16 and up), limited game drives, and in-room spa offerings.

The Monachira channel is not far from the famous Gudigwa heronries, which is the nesting ground of thousands of herons, egrets and storks.

Elephants, lions, leopard, and a wide variety of Okavango species call the islands and floodplains along the permanent channels of the Monachira river their home.

Guests may also be lucky enough to spot the elusive Pels Fishing Owl and rare sitatunga, a semi aquatic swamp antelope.

The luxury camp will only be accessible by helicopter from either Kasane or Maun, the nearest international airports.

Bookings for 2025 are open now.
