Where did the year go ? And what a year it was !
So much has happened over the past year and all of it good. Machaba has grown into a wonderful, classic camp.
Shaun and Elcke continue to wow guests with their passion and drive, turning every guest into a friend and fan of our lovely little camp. Many promising to return.
We are very proud to be No 1 on Tripadvisor for the Moremi Game Reserve. All in just 12 months.
The one thing we could never have anticipated was the incredible wildlife sightings we have had through the year. As we all know this can never be predicted but the Khwai area very seldom fails to produce and this last year was no exception.
We have had great rains and the area is looking green and lush, and of course the wildlife in the area is loving it.
Here are some of the unique sighting we had in 2013-
* Wild dogs denning for four months about 10 minutes from camp. They managed to raise most of their pups and are a firm fixture in the area(they have denned successfully in the area for the last 12 years plus)
* The female leopard known as the “Machaba female” successfully raising her cub nearby the camp
* A leopard with an African rock python for breakfast
* Six different leopard sighted on one game drive
* Many, many wild dog kills nearby camp and along the Khwai river
* A pair of Pel’s Fishing owls set up residence near one of the water crossings
* Elephants in front of the camp all day during the dry months
* Lions lions and more lions
* And many many more wonderful different happenings….
The year ahead looks very good with a huge interest being shown in Machaba from all over the world. If you haven’t been to camp we urge you to make it part of your next journey and look forward to meeting all of you at Indaba and the numerous trade shows during the year.
We will keep you posted on any specials and packages we put together as we go through the year.
May 2014 be a phenomenal year for all of you.
Yours in conservation
Wendy and Al
