AndBeyond Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge is situated in a remote wilderness area in the South Eastern Okavango Delta, 20 km east of Chief’s Island, on the southern border of Moremi Game Reserve and within the Santantadibe river system. The area that Sandibe traverses is 270 sq km and the site was specifically chosen for its extraordinary beauty, its prime location on the permanent Delta and its proximity to the game-rich grassy plains. At AndBeyond Sandibe, guests can awaken to the sound of animals, laugh at the antics of baboons and squirrels over breakfasts and tread in the footsteps of elephants as they walk the ancient paths that bisect the forest. Days are spent exploring a maze of papyrus and exploring the wide floodplains in search of wildlife. Designed for both privacy and views, the eight elegant guest suites are raised above the papyrus, peeking out from a canopy of wild palms and fig trees. Simple and organic, low-key décor complements the natural lines of the exteriors. A casual crocodile-embossed leather sofa for two and a naturally beautiful side table made from a tree trunk create an aura of casual comfort. The giant king-sized bed looks out on spectacular Delta views from underneath a dazzling white mosquito net. The sounds of Africa lull and soothe when you come awake in the morning, as elephants splash in the water, baboons chatter and birds call in the trees. Outdoor showers cater for those who simply cannot tear themselves away from the views, while discrete butler hatches add an aura of intimacy. Sparkling private plunge pools mirror the cool waters of the Delta channels, while two large day beds invite guests to daydream away the afternoon gazing at a tranquil vista of water and sky. Presided over by twinkling, starry skies and set to the chorus of an orchestra of frogs, private meals are served on the large, elevated deck. Back inside, a wood-burning fireplace creates the ideal spot for cosy winter nights filled with reflection on adventures to be lived. &Beyond Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge boasts some of the best game viewing in the Delta and guests set off in search of wildlife in the early morning and late afternoon. Situated on the edge of the Delta, the game viewing areas at Sandibe remain accessible throughout the year, irrespective of rising water levels. Game viewing here is remote and secluded, with very few vehicles sharing the private concession. Afternoon drives continue after night, allowing for an opportunity to see the many animals that are more active at night.
