SANDIBE SAFARI LODGE
Sandibe Safari Lodge is a luxury safari lodge set in a private concession of 8 000 hectares to the southeast of the Moremi Game Reserve in the centre of one of the most unique regions in the world, the Okavango Delta. Renowned for its lush waterways and abundant wildlife, the Okavango is home to a number of aquatic and land species, including the large African predators.
The clear waters of the Okavango Delta glimmer through a maze of brilliant green papyrus in front of Sandibe Safari Lodge and the game-rich grassy floodplains stretch into the horizon beyond. As the lodge is located in a private concession, Sandibe has exclusive traversing over 27 000 hectares (66 700 acres) of wilderness adjacent to the Moremi Game Reserve.
Camouflaged under a tumbling canopy of wild palms and gnarled fig leaves, eight thatched cottages emerge in leafy clearings right on the edge of the Delta's waterways. Blending seamlessly with its surroundings, the tranquil beauty of Sandibe Safari Lodge surprises not only guests but even the occasional wandering animals, startled as rough wooden beams and thatched roofs take shape within the leafy groves.
Sandibe Safari Lodge is renowned for understatedly stylish accommodation in the heart of the breathtaking Okavango Delta. Surrounded by forest, Sandibe's twin-bedded cottages are styled in a fusion of ochres and tactile textures, with airy screen walls opening onto exceptional views of the Okavango Delta wetlands and savanna. The central dining and sitting area is tucked under a soaring canopy of trees.
After your evening game-drive, enjoy a delicious alfresco banquet of Pan-African cuisine in the boma (outdoor) illuminated by dozens of candles and lanterns. Alternatively, your private deck provides a romantic setting for intimate candlelit dinners. Sandibe is also known for wonderful bush picnics in surprising settings.
Sandibe Safari Lodge's prime location between permanent water and the open plains offers guests a wide range of wildlife-related activities and water-based adventures.
The Okavango Delta includes a wide variety of ecosystems; channels, lagoons, shallow wetlands, riverine forests, floodplains, open grassland, woodland, shrubland and palm savannah. The twice-daily game drives, bush walks or boat excursion, all guided by highly-skilled guides, allow you explore each of these ecosystems and their unique plant and animal life. Night drives provide an enticing glimpse into the nocturnal life on the Delta.
