Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp

Ideally positioned to explore the magnificence of the Okavango Delta, Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp is located on an exclusive 25 000-hectare (61 775-acre) wildlife concession bordering the Moremi Game Reserve.

The camp is known for its elegant tented accommodation, which boasts breathtaking views of both mature mopane woodlands and seasonally flooded grasslands. You have the priceless opportunity to discover the myriad wildlife wonders of this diverse land-water Okavango location.

Beautiful views, teak floors and a high pitched, open-truss ceiling frame the central guest area. Expansive indoor and outdoor sitting and dining areas include a range of guest-pleasure amenities: an interactive food and coffee bar, complete with our trained baristas; an extensive pool area with inviting loungers and shaded salas; a dedicated massage sala and a spectacular open-air boma, set under the dappled shade of the camp’s massive ebony trees – ideal for those buffet feasts under the stars.

 

Blending harmoniously with the environment, nine tented suites (including a family option) set on raised wooden platforms, are cradled under a canopy of towering ebony trees.

Luxury Tents
Raised on wooden platforms, the spacious tented suites let in the sights and sounds of the African bush and offer glamourous, light and earthy interiors. Front-facing beds make the most of the sensational Delta views, while a spacious dressing area sits snugly behind the bed’s giant headboard, in between the bedroom and ensuite bathroom, to ensure the utmost privacy. The beautiful bathrooms come complete with indoor and al fresco showers.

Family Tent
Families will be well taken care of in the family tent. Two interleading luxury tents make up a family tent, ensuring a magical multi-generational travel experience for all.

Game Drives
Game viewing in the Okavango Delta is remote and secluded, with very few vehicles sharing the private concession. Sensitive off-road driving practices allow our guests to get up close to the area’s exceptional wildlife. Afternoon drives continue after night, allowing for an opportunity to see the many animals that are more active at night, including leopard and serval. Lion frequently hunt at night and there is always a chance of coming upon them feeding on a kill.

&Beyond’s professionally trained guides will ask you about your favourite wildlife and will do their best to ensure that your preferences are met, whether it is tracking a particular species or spending more time enjoying each sighting, getting to know the habits of the animals. They will also tell you about the vegetation of the region and will explain the behaviour of the animals that you come across. In some cases, the guides will be able to identify individual animals and let you know about their history and habits.

Seasonal Mokoro Trips
The Delta is probably best known for its Mokoro rides. These are boating trips through the maze like channels and shallow lagoons of the Delta. They are conducted in traditional boats which are called Mokoros. These sturdy boats used to be hand crafted out of large Delta trees. Today most of the boats used in the Delta are fiber glass replicas, to prevent the cutting down and depletion of the Delta’s magnificent trees.

Mokoros are a great way to go game viewing. As they are not motorized, they allow you to glide silently through the channels. This allows you to approach the wildlife silently and you will see more, as they are not scared off by a motor. You will see many animals that feed on the grass and reeds on the palm islands such as lechwe, sitatunga, elephant, hippo and crocodile.

Seasonal motorized boat excursions
Game viewing is also offered in motorized boats. These trips allow you to cover more ground, and should allow you to see more of the landscape, although some of the wildlife may be scared off by the motor.
