We enjoyed the time back in the bush very much. What an outstanding experience with two grown-up lions. This cannot be repeated. We loved it here, and had much fun with Matthew and the team.

Thank you for a really amazing stay. Matt and the team were great. Nature and wildlife experience was wonderful.

Very nice located Lodge and the bush walk was incredible, especially because we saw an elephant from very close. Good hospitality as well!

Thank you for the most delicious stay in the most precious, inspiring, tranquil and awakening idyll.

beautiful morning walks in cool air, hot afternoons watching the elephants and pitch black star-lit nights listening to the world alive outside.

Oodles of good food and company around the camp fire. Thanks you to Matthew and Jose (Basil) for amazing words of wisdom on birds, mammals and pooh!

We love it here!

Just a short note to wish you all a happy new year and the very best for 2010.
Many thanks for the wonderful time we had on the Lebombo Hiking trail. We will remember it fondly for years to come and will never forget the fabulous experience we had when the elephant calmly visited our camp on the second evening while we were preparing dinner. It truly was a unique experience.
Many thanks again.
Look forward to staying with you again when we return to South Africa in the hopefully not too distant future.
Kind regards

Dear Marichen, thanks. Machampane was very, very nice. We have been telling everybody here about the elephants nightly visit. Quite an adventure! The visit to the village was an extremely impressive experience. We hadn’t realised how basic life is for some people. A special compliment for Peterson, one of the guides.

Just to let you know we had a great stay at Machampane.
The staff were great and the position and real wilderness ideal for us. We will be promoting the camp and including it on the itinerary once we have finalised our route.
If you can also let the camp know we saw a large male leopard when we left, particularly Torsten as we had some discussions about this. We were very lucky as it was already 10h30 in the morning on our way to massingir, just after the old bomas on the left a Leopard walked across the road in front of us. It was quite shy so moved off but we did get a good sighting.
Kind Regards
