Fodor's Expert Review &Beyond Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge

Okavango Delta, North West, Botswana

Sandibe clings to the edge of a pristine channel of the Santantadibe River and has the reputation for being &Beyond's best camp for wildlife viewing in the Delta. Activities here are land-based: walk on a palm-studded island or track big game in an open-sided vehicle. The camp, which is set in a lush forest, has a unique modern design full of light, curves, and cavernous archways with wooden shingled roofs echoing the plated armor of a pangolin. You may find it difficult to leave your cozy stilted cottage with its freestanding fireplace, split-level viewing deck, and plunge pool. However, the main lodge has a massage sala with Delta views that might do for awhile as well as a gym for exercise addicts. 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.
