Sandibe Safari Lodge 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: the aquatic tsessebe antelope—the fastest antelope—and the secretive sitatunga. The camp has a fairy-tale feel, as if a giant fashioned an idyllic tiny village out of adobe and thatch and set it down amid an enchanted forest full of birds. It'll be difficult to tear yourself away from your honey-color cottage with its raised viewing deck and huge carved bed covered with a woven leather bedspread to walk to the main lodge. However, the main lodge has a cozy lounge and an upstairs viewing deck that might do for awhile. After a splendid dinner, enjoy a nightcap around a crackling fire under a star-studded sky.
