Explore the Wild: Discover the Beauty of the Botswana
In the heart of the Delta, on the edge of a waterway, you’ll find Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge. Situated on a diverse, wildlife-rich, private concession, Sandibe has exclusive traversing rights over a vast 22,500 hectares (55,600 acres) of wildlife land bordering the Moremi Game Reserve.
The inspired organic design of the lodge melts into the surrounding forest canopy of wild palms and gnarled fig trees. Trees will shade you as you approach the lodge; an intriguing curl and sweep of shingled wood comes into view, resembling a giant scaled pangolin at rest. Stairs open onto the high ceilings of the copper-toned and glassless guest area overlooking the Delta. From this central dining area, the wooden deck stretches beyond the roof, while the upstairs bar and lounge extend along an elevated walkway to a viewing platform.
Drawing its inspiration from nature, andBeyond Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge features breathtaking architecture that is serene, earthy and organic. Boasting a modern style that blends perfectly with the environment, twelve elegant suites are elevated above the landscape and feature magnificent Delta views, as well as private plunge pools, cosy fireplaces and secluded nooks. An interactive kitchen creates delicious meals, while a beautifully situated massage sala offers a selection of relaxing massages. The lodge is situated in a private wildlife concession adjacent to the Moremi Game Reserve and offers exceptional game viewing opportunities.
The elegant suites have an organic design, complete with hand-woven exteriors, which reinforces this cosy and intimate illusion. Looking out over the Delta, the suites are nestled into the big trees and thickets that spring up around the water’s edge
The lodge boasts two spectacular interleading suites that can accommodate two adults and two children (three on special request). Each suite has a lovely ensuite bathroom, private plunge pools, cosy fireplaces and secluded nooks.
Twice-daily game drives in open safari vehicles
Tread in the tracks of the Delta wildlife, breathe in the scent of crushed wild grasses, and feel your senses come alive.
Discover the complexities of tracking, how every bent blade of grass and imprint in the soil has a meaning; observe how your guide interprets the signs and sounds of the bush; smell and taste wild herbs, as your guide explains their traditional uses; explore the small miracles of the bush, from the magnificent tapestry of a spider’s web to the microscopic world of the dung beetle.
Listen for the alarm call of the grey go-away bird; watch for the iridescent flight-sparkle of the lilac breasted roller, or use your Swarovski Optik binoculars to zoom in on the dark shape of a brown snake eagle perched regally on the high branches of a dead tree. Look out for the bright red bill of a grey-headed kingfisher, as it perches silently on a branch watching the ground for insects or small lizards.
This is a dynamic experience guaranteed to captivate and engage all your senses.
