Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp

Okavango Delta
Located in a 61,775 acre exclusive wildlife concession on the edge of the Okavango Delta, bordering the Moremi Game Reserve, Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp is ideally positioned to explore the magnificence of the Okavango. Sheltered by dense forest thickets, yet opening up onto wide, expansive views over lagoons and channels, the camp showcases the best of what the Delta has to offer. Nxabega is known for its elegant tented accommodation, which boasts breath-taking views of the ever-changing Delta. Blending skillfully with the environment, nine luxurious tented suites set on raised wooden platforms are tucked beneath a canopy of ebony trees. Each unit features en-suite bathrooms and private verandas overlooking the reeded floodplain.
The heart of Nxabega lies in its handsome living and dining areas, where burnished teak floors and a steeply pitched thatch roof frame a lofty and comfortable space.

springboard of comfort, you are able to appreciate the exquisite beauty of the Okavango Delta. Meaning “Place of the Giraffe,” Nxabega combines more than just two worlds – the remote wild game viewing experience of Botswana’s lush grasslands, and the intricate details of the hidden world of the Delta’s waterways, with utter comfort and style. Private bush dinners, breakfasts in bed, lamp lit cocktails on a river island or a walking safari with al fresco picnic, are just some of the activities available.
 
A maze of sparkling lagoons, meandering channels and overgrown islands teeming with wildlife, Botswana’s Okavango Delta lies like a sparkling jewel at the heart of the Kalahari Desert. Known as the river that never finds the sea, the Delta’s crystal-clear channels spread over the thirstlands of the Kalahari with their papyrus-fringed banks and fertile floating islands. Adapted for a life in and out of water, the elegant red lechwe and shy sitatunga are found in this watery wilderness. Lion, cheetah, leopard, spotted hyena and African wild dog share the floodplains with large herds of elephant and buffalo. Hippo inhabit the deeper channels and lagoons, while honeybadgers can be seen in broad daylight. Tall termite mounds are homes for families of dwarf and banded mongoose. Traditional mokoro (dugout canoe) rides explore the delicate details of the glistening waterways, where iridescent dragonflies, frogs of every color and jewel-like kingfishers live in the papyrus lined banks.
