Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge is set in a private concession in the Okavango Delta bordering the Moremi Wildlife Reserve, an area rich in all things wildlife and birdlife related. A region where lion, leopard, wild dog, elephant, lechwe antelope, hippo and giraffe are common and let us not forget the 450 odd species of birds.
Sandibe is also all about hospitality, luxury, excellent cuisine and excellent wine, a lodge that one visits to escape the world and experience an authentic safari experience.
Set in a forest of fig trees and wild palms Sandibe offers views out over one of Africa’s most breath-taking landscapes.
Twelve exclusive wooden luxurious suites are on offer at Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge each with their own plunge pools, cosy fireplaces, private verandahs, secluded nooks, en-suite bathrooms that are to die for with indoor and outdoor showers.
All suites are spaced far enough apart to ensure total and utter privacy, a world to your own when sitting on the verandah and staring out of the Okavango.
Well presented, tasty and varied cuisine is on offer, all brought to you by a passionate chef and his team in a kitchen that is second to none in the safari industry in Botswana.
For families and those interested in cooking, the interactive kitchen setup is the place to be. Watch and learn from the chef and his team as they prepare meals from the finest of Botswanean beef, bake artisanal bread and pizzas and conjure up magic with all the other ingredients.
Dining venues include; indoor and outdoor locations and should one want a private dining experience, well this can be arranged on one's private deck.
The central guest area is something to behold, inspired by the body shape of a pangolin, the lodge twists and turns out of a small forest while being covered in timber overlays that mirror the scales of the animal. Genuinely spectacular to say the least.
From wooden decks, one has the scenic wonder of the Okavango in front of you as far as the eye can see.
