All about the Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp.

A maze of sparkling lagoons, meandering channels and overgrown islands teeming with wildlife, Botswana’s Okavango Delta lies like a sparkling jewel at the heart of the Kalahari Desert. Known as the river that never finds the sea, the Delta’s crystal-clear channels spread over the thirstlands of the Kalahari with their papyrus-fringed banks and fertile floating islands. Adapted for a life in and out of water, the elegant red lechwe and shy sitatunga are found in this watery wilderness.

Lion, cheetah, leopard and African wild dog share the floodplains with large herds of elephant and buffalo. Hippo inhabit the deeper channels and lagoons, while honeybadgers can be seen in broad daylight. Tall termite mounds are homes for families of dwarf and banded mongoose. Traditional mokoro (dugout canoe) rides explore the delicate details of the glistening waterways, where iridescent dragonflies, frogs of every colour and jewel-like kingfishers live in the papyruslined banks.

&Beyond boasts four magnificent lodges in the Okavango Delta, each with its own individual charm and character: Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp, Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge, Xaranna Okavango Delta Camp and Xudum Okavango Delta Lodge.

Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp is located in a 25 000 hectare (61 775 acre) exclusive wildlife concession on the edge of the Okavango Delta, bordering the Moremi Game Reserve. Ideally positioned to explore the magnificence of the Okavango, the camp is known for its elegant tented accommodation, which boasts breath-taking views of the ever-changing Delta. Blending skilfully with the environment, nine exclusive tented suites, set on raised wooden platforms, are tucked beneath a canopy of ebony trees. Each spacious tent features a luxurious bed that faces the beautiful views of a reed-filled floodplain; an ensuite bathroom with an indoor and al fresco shower and a sprawling veranda with a spacious sitting area and a private sala. A family tent, consisting of two luxury tents joined by a walkway, offers the perfect setting for families to enjoy the wonders of the Delta.

&Beyond Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp’s glamorous, light and earthy look begins on arrival, with an elegant entrance lending a sense of place and atmosphere to welcome guests to the camp. The beautiful interiors feature earthy tones that echo the magnificent natural setting, while a sophisticated safari style offers a contemporary spin on the traditional tented camp. The heart of Nxabega lies in its handsome living and dining areas, where burnished teak floors and a steeply pitched thatch roof frame a lofty and comfortable space. Made from local timber, reed and thatch, the guest areas include indoor and outdoor dining areas, a well-stocked Safari Shop, and guest bathrooms. The camp’s extensive pool area offers salas for shade, and comfortable loungers positioned to make the most of the beautiful Okavango Delta views. A dedicated massage sala allows guests to enjoy a decadent treatment in a private setting that plays on the tranquil environment. Guests can freshen up with a steaming hot coffee served by expertly trained baristas from the camp’s interactive food and coffee bar. The spectacular open air boma encircled by a rugged wooden fence on the very edge of the Delta, and set in the mottled shade of the camps massive ebony trees allows for starlight night time dining. Private bush dinners, breakfasts in bed, lamplit cocktails on a river island or a walking safari with al fresco picnic are all provided with pleasure by Nxabega’s warm and friendly staff.
