Set in a cool forest canopy of wild palms and gnarled fig trees, andBeyond Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge looks out over spectacular Delta views. Situated on a private concession, Sandibe has exclusive traversing rights over 22 500 hectares (55 600 acres) of wildlife land adjacent to the Moremi Game Reserve. Behind the lodge, golden-grassed floodplains stretch into the distance, framed by lush palm islands and the spires of giant termite mounds. The beautiful organic architecture of the lodge blends seamlessly with one of Africa’s most breathtaking landscapes. Drawing its inspiration from nature, &Beyond Sandibe is serene and earthy. Twelve elegant and intimate suites are raised above the papyrus like the nests of golden weaver birds and feature magnificent Delta views, as well as private plunge pools, cosy fireplaces and secluded nooks. Inside, the rooms become cocoons at night, with fireplaces for winter use. Interiors celebrate Botswana craft with pieces that include copper-clad mekoro, basketware and sculpted wooden tables. An interactive kitchen celebrates succulent Botswana beef, artisanal breads and pizzas, while a beautifully situated massage sala offers a selection of relaxing massages in a spectacular natural setting. Boasting one of the best wildlife experiences in the Delta, the lodge combines a magnificent natural location with an unusual yet beautiful design.
