Experience the fabulous &Beyond Nxabega Okavango Delta Tented Camp in an area of forest woodlands and floodplains, just to the west of Chief’s Island, on your dream Botswana safari. Combining the best of both worlds, this typical Okavango swamps camp offers both land game viewing on game drives and water-based wildlife sightings on mokoro cruises or special boat outings.
Blending skilfully with the environment, nine exclusive tented suites are raised on neat wooden platforms, tucked beneath a verdant canopy of statuesque ebony trees. Burnished teak floors and a steeply pitched thatch roof frame a lofty and comfortable living area.
Andbeyond Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp means “Place of the Giraffe” because it is located in the ideal giraffe habitat where these tall creatures hang out – the design is also much like a giraffe in its elevated hideout in the tree tops. Your super luxury tented chalet peeps out over an expanse of 25 000 ha of beautiful private concession on the edge of both the Okavango Delta and magical Moremi Game Reserves.
Land and water activities therefore attract nature loving visitors to explore these habitats in detail. Set off on motor boats or a traditional dugout canoe called a mokoro to find fascinating creatures at eye level – frogs, birds, rodents and even leopards if you are lucky. The other option is to drive or walk through exquisite mopane forests, grasslands and nearby palm islands to explore groves of jackal berries, sausage trees and wild figs. And there you will find impala, lechwe, baboons, giraffe buffalo, roan and sable antelopes as well as jackals and the big cats.
You will love the intimacy of Nxabega Tented Camp, so stylish, yet so natural, all connected with neat pathways through the dense vegetation on the edge of the island. Raised for the best views, and to mimic a giraffe, these 9 tented safari chalets boast front decks with chairs and a table looking out over the permanent floodplains, large beds, showers, and even a front door.
Join other guests in the large open plan dining room, the lounge with its comfy chairs, books and board games, inviting bar, swimming pool deck, and warm fire place if the weather turns chilly. A beautiful high thatched roof matches the traditional wooden deck, the central focus for the camp where meals are enjoyed around the long candlelit table or in the boma, around the fire. High class fittings and superb attention to detail in a five-star getaway in the Okavango Delta, wow, what could be better?
Add to this a cute curio and even time for a pampering massage such as aromatherapy massages, Swedish massages, Indian head massages and feet massages – in the privacy of your tented suite. AndBeyond has got it right with this gem of a getaway in the Botswana Delta where you will see no one else and revel in the solitude of the watery wilderness.
