Set beneath a cool forest canopy of wild palms and gnarled fig trees, Sandibe Okavango Lodge boasts outstanding wildlife viewing and warm hospitality.
Accommodation at Sandibe consist of twelve air-conditioned suites that sit on raised decks above the papyrus-lined waters. The suites include comfortable beds with unusual copper-colored mosquito nets and an en suite bathroom with double copper basins, flush toilet, and an al fresco outside shower. All the cottages face the water and are shaded by the tall tree canopy, where guests can admire the views and the wildlife from the privacy of their own refreshing plunge pool.
Sandibe Safari Lodge is situated on a private concession next to a permanent channel of the Okavango Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The camp has exclusive traversing rights to over 55, 600 acres of wildlife land adjacent to the Moremi Game Reserve. The wildlife in the area around Sandibe is quite good, with red lechwe, impala, tsessebe, kudu, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe and resident herds of buffalo and elephant. The dominant predators are lion and leopard, but cheetah and hyena are seen here too. Sandibe Safari Lodge has the dubious privilege of a “resident” elephant who often likes to hog the paths and appear at the swimming pool.
