MOZAMBIQUE

AZURA QUILALEA is an unexpected piece of paradise. This uninhabited one-square-kilometre island is part of the Quirimbas Archipelago, a collection of 31 islands, about 10 kilometres from the mainland and an adventurous coastal destination. This is an African ocean safari like no other and the perfect combination with safaris in Tanzania, Kenya, South Africa, Botswana and Zambia.

OCEAN SAFARI

Discover marine life and underwater gardens - go kayaking, diving or snorkelling; witness green, hawksbill and leatherback turtles nesting or hatching; see humpback whales breeching; observe around 134 bird species and learn about the giant baobab trees on the island.

The Quilalea house reef is accessed directly from the beach in front of the bar and perfect for snorkelling and night dives.

South Africa

WHAT WE LOVE: Many of our team are South African and we are all extremely passionate about the country, its people, wildlife and scenic beauty – who would not be with an office in the Cape winelands! But most of all we are proud of what South Africa has achieved and the challenges we have overcome. It is a country that has diversity as its hallmark. From lush forests, vast savannahs, beautiful beaches, arid semi-desert, dramatic mountain ranges to its cosmopolitan cities, ‘Big Five’ wildlife reserves, winelands, gourmet restaurants and colourful shanty towns: South Africa has all any visitor could ask for. Strong on adventure, sport, nature and wildlife, it is also a pioneer and global leader in responsible tourism.

Machaba Camp & Little Machaba

The classic, 1950’s-style Machaba Camp and Little Machaba are situated in the 35 000-hectare Khwai Concession in the northeastern Okavango, adjacent to Moremi Game Reserve. The name Machaba is the local Setswana name for the sycamore fig tree, the tree of life, renowned for their abundant fruit, which feeds a vast array of animals throughout the year, including elephant, baboons, bushbuck, green pigeons and many more. The camp pathways meander between the large riverine trees.

Machaba Camp's 10 luxury tents are situated in the beautiful riverine treeline on the Khwai River, overlooking the famous Moremi Game Reserve. From these tented verandas one can watch the daily parade of animals coming down to drink at the river in front of camp. The tents and main area of Little Machaba are all on decks and overlook a large floodplain.
