Each suite offers a large en-suite bedroom, a well-appointed full bathroom also with an outdoor shower, a dayroom with a sumptuous daybed and a large terrace with a newly fitted plunge pool, allowing you to retreat and refresh in secluded luxury.
Privacy is guaranteed, thanks to the careful placement of the suites and privacy walls, ensuring a tranquil and intimate stay. Safaris are conducted in Machaton Camp’s private 4x4 vehicle. Machaton Camp is booked as an Exclusive - Self Catering Use Only, including housekeepers, groundsmen and a ranger for your game drives.
