Sable Alley Camp

Modern tented accommodation in the Khwai Reserve

Sable Alley Camp is sustainable and elegant, rustic and chic, small and vibey – superb modern tented accommodation on the Khwai River in the remarkable Okavango Delta. This is the Khwai Private Reserve, a wonderful Botswana community and conservation project. Sable Alley Camp is still young, a revamped old bush camp, overlooking a lagoon flowing to to the Khwai and Sable Alley rivers on the edge of the world-famous Moremi Game Reserve.

There is no shortage of wildlife at Sable Alley, so much water too, a drinking spot for the beautiful sable antelope, elephants, buffalo, herds of antelope, zebra and predator such as wild dogs, lions, leopards and jackals at night. This massive land piece stretches 440 000 acres into extraordinary habitats encompassing forests, open floodplains, river woodlands and grassy plains. Huge old trees are habitats for incredible raptors and creatures.

Sit beside the dazzling swimming pool, or in the open air lounge and simply watch the hippos and crocs and all the wildlife constantly surviving before you.  Set off in silent mokoro dug out canoes on the water when it’s high and see the creatures on their special level. At the camp, everything is elevated, so you are on the tree level. 

Spend silent nights in 12 luxury tents on stilts with superb outlooks over the lily-clad lagoon, with modern ensuite bathrooms, decks and lovely outside showers and tasteful African styled décor. Two family units comprise connected tents for added space and unique safari bonding. Stare out over the waterhole daily to see the hippos and use the binoculars for astounding bird sightings. Game drives, boat rides and mokoro cruises – the best of both worlds to get your fill of wildlife in this breath-taking habitat. 

The lodge is in a gorgeous spot of the delta with an excellent view. It feels intimate and private, yet warm and homey. Cuisine is terrific and the kindness and energy of the staff is impossible to miss. We recommend a trip to the sky beds for that highlight of your safari. You see the milky way and shooting stars over a watering hole that hosts elephants and some lions throughout the night. 

The walking safari in the bush is very interesting and offers a completely different view of the bush than from the land cruiser – the experience is hard to describe, the proof is in the pudding with many visitors returning every year to do it again.
