Located in the Okavango Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the &Beyond Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge is the perfect place to get immersed in Botswana’s untouched nature and see Africa’s wildlife in its natural habitat.
Adjacent to the Moremi Game Reserve, the lodge sits under a canopy of wild palms and fig trees and blends in perfectly with its surroundings. Rising out of the trees, the lodge is organic and handmade with wood, with a unique architectural design inspired by a pangolin’s body armour. High ceilings, an open terrace and series of decks all showcase the vast expanse of the Delta, giving unrivalled views to one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa.
With just twelve guest suites, the lodge provides a serene and luxurious spot for each guest. Each suite has its own undisturbed view and comes complete with natural, simple interiors (think lots of wood, neutral colours, locally crafted baskets and copper accents), wood-burning fire, private plunge pool, and even an outdoor shower to allow guests to truly become one with nature.
Game drives, scenic helicopter flights and safari tours await at Sandibe, with the chance of catching sightings of buffalo, giraffe, lion, cheetah and elephant, as well as a vast array of other species. With a spa and gym on-site, Sandibe is the place for adventurers and relaxation-seekers alike. Excellent food and true African hospitality are the icing on the cake for a truly breath-taking lodge and location.
