The activities at Nxabega are both land and water-based. Daily and nightly safaris in 4×4 vehicles whisk guests into the delta and promise exciting encounters with the region’s diverse wildlife. Depending on the season, this could include impala, red lechwe, zebra, tsessebe, baboons, jackals, kudu, giraffe, hyena, leopard, steenbok, and African wildcat. Bush walks are an ideal way to explore the wilderness on foot with a personal guide as one learns about the bush and the animals. Mokoro excursions are perhaps the quintessential Okavango activity as they glide quietly along the waterways in traditional dug-out canoes.
The camp’s main area is a majestic thatched “boma” with teak paneling. It encompasses a large dining area, a lounge area with comfortable armchairs, a well-stocked bar, and a fireplace that is perfect for chilly evenings. A large outside deck doubles as an optional dining area. While a raised timber walkway leads from the main area to the plunge pool and pool deck where there is plenty of seating. Meals at Nxabega are taken in harmony with the day’s activities. It usually starts with an early morning cup of coffee before the morning game drive. Upon return, a hearty brunch is served. Lunch and afternoon tea are enjoyed before the afternoon/evening activities. Finally, dinner is usually taken under the stars.
