Fodor's Review

A land and water camp run by &Beyond, Sandibe clings to the edge of a pristine channel of the Santantadibe River. Go fishing, take a mokoro ride through tunnels of interlacing papyrus, walk on a palm-studded island, or track big game in an open-sided vehicle. Watch out for some Okavango-specific animals like the secretive sitatunga—a rare, aquatic antelope. The camp, which is set in a lush forest, was completely rebuilt in 2014 and has a unique modern design full of light, curves, and cavernous archways with wooden shingled roofs echoing the plated armor of a pangolin. It'll be difficult to tear yourself away from your cozy stilted cottage with its free-standing fireplace, split-level viewing deck, and plunge pool. However, the main lodge has a massage sala with delta views that might do for awhile. After a splendid dinner, enjoy a nightcap around a crackling fire under a star-studded sky. Like the other &Beyond camps, Sandibe welcomes children of all ages and has a special kids program.
