Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp

 

Location:

Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp is situated on the edge of the permanent Okavango Delta, in a 7 000 hectare (17 300 acre) private concession, on the western border of the Moremi Wildlife Reserve.

Meaning “Place of the Giraffe,” Nxabega is the instrument with which guests explore the mysteries of the Delta. The liberated channels and hidden confluences weave around the camp, initiating visitors into water-bound adventures that unfold around every corner of papyrus and reed strewn banks.

The Camp:

With graceful tents strewn either side of the guest deck, each with mind-blowing views of the ever-changing Okavango Delta, the 9 tented suites create an experience that is rugged yet decadent, blending the remoteness of the majestic setting with utter indulgence and style.

Raised on wooden platforms, the spacious tented suites let in the sights and sounds of the African bush. Escape the heat of the day with a dip in the pool or take in the sun on the broad viewing deck looking out over reeds and floodplains. The suites are a meeting of soft linens, plush crèmes and sturdy canvas, polished timber and floating fabrics wafting down from the ceiling. With a luxurious bed facing the lagoon there’s no better way to take in the glorious hues of an African sunrise. A large en-suite shower with burnished teak floorboards rejuvenates guests, while secluded wooden decks invite you to contemplate the water’s edge in the presence of endless untouched thickets of vegetation.

Activities & Wildlife:

Day and night safaris, bush walks, mokoro and powerboat cruises are yours to enjoy at Nxabega.

Highly trained guides and trackers will do their utmost to delight guests with a choice of twice daily game drives where guests can explore the rich wildlife surrounding Nxabega on early morning and late afternoon or evening game drives in an open air safari vehicle, accompanied by an armed guide and tracker. The landscape traversed on game drives includes floodplains, as well as seasonal grassland, woodland, shrubland and savanna. Game drives track the Big Five, as well as a variety of other animals. Interpretive bush walks, accompanied by an armed guide, unravel the splendour of the land.

Enjoy river cruises in an electrically powered ‘eco boat’ or mokoro where you can explore the waterways of the Okavango by boat in the company of our experienced guides. Additionally guests can capture the experience with a helicopter ride, which brings the entirety of the land into sight, and where the weaving, snaking blue rivers of the Delta meet the rich greenery of the papyrus reeds.

Home to a plethora of wildlife, big and small, the Okavango Delta will leave guests delirious with pleasurable sightings of the semi-aquatic red lechwe, elephant and sitatunga. While hippos prefer the deeper channels, guests are privy to the delicate and colourful players of the eco-system from a kaleidoscope of colourful frogs, to the luminous dragonflies.

Bird lovers are in for the time of their lives. The mysterious Pel’s fishing owl nests in the thickets of evergreen abounding and, with patience, visitors may glimpse this beauty. Whether it’s the signature cry of the fish eagle or the endangered wattle crane, or even the African Jacana zipping along the surface of the water, the Delta will leave its impression on all travellers.
