Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp

Lying in a riverine forest near the permanent channels of the Okavango Delta, Nxabega offers an enchanting water and wilderness experience with exclusive access to a 25,000-hectare wildlife concession.

As well as the excitement of viewing big game on land, Nxabega’s guides will lead you into the heart of the delta to explore its lagoons and floodplains by boat and traditional mokoro (dugout canoe). You’ll be able to drift past elephants and hippos having their first drink of the day, photograph huge numbers of birds – there are over 450 species here, including the rare Pel’s fishing owl – and catch glimpses of giraffe, zebra, sitatunga antelope, lechwe, hyena and leopard. 

This intimate camp is made up of nine elegant safari tents raised on wooden platforms, each with a private deck overlooking a floodplain frequented by local wildlife. The magnificent main building, constructed in timber, reed and thatch, has a dining room, sitting room and expansive deck with sweeping views of the grasslands and mopane woodlands. There’s also a swimming pool framed by shaded loungers for unwinding in between excursions.
