Macatoo Camp is a heavyweight in the realms of horseback safari across the whole continent, offering some of the best safari riding experiences one is likely to come across. There can be nothing more exhilarating for horse lovers than to gallop across the flood plains of Africa riding alongside Giraffe, Zebra, Elephant and the many antelope species of this wonderful wetland.
The camp itself harks back to a time of pioneering safari camping in medium sized Meru tents that are comfortable, with a slight hint of luxury, but where the experience of the safari takes precedence over everything else. This is the “it” factor that we love and as a stand-alone camp without horseback safari it would be up there with one of the best camps in the Delta on this old school approach to safari experience.
The game viewing is very strong in this part of the Abu Concession and with all activities on offer one should get a complete safari experience here. Night drives are possible, though tend to be actioned on the way back from the afternoon game drive. Whilst the focus is on Horseback safaris, people with no riding experience or interest in riding should still consider a visit to the camp
We love Macatoo and feel, where possible it is a must do camp either as part of a longer itinerary to Botswana or as a stand-alone camp for shorter trips. It remains a firm favorite of ours and has been included in the Tailormade Africa Collection of camps, a Gold standard of properties across Africa that we feel stand out.
