forest thickets, yet opening up onto wide, expansive views
over lagoons and channels, the Camp showcases the best of
what the Delta has to offer.
Nine exclusive tented suites are strung out on either
side of the camp's handsome thatched guest areas. 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.
Cowhide rugs on the floors and chocolate tones warm and
gratify, while large spinning fans keep the heat at bay.
A large ensuite shower with burnished teak floorboards
refreshes and renews, while private wooden decks invite you
to contemplate the water’s edge. Sweeping guest areas
nestled under shady boughs provide a cosy place to while
away the afternoon hours. Gaze onto distant views or take
refuge in dark wooden panelling and leather fittings beneath
the steep thatched roof. Gleaming wooden floors and
comfortable reed chairs under a blazing chandelier add spice
and warmth to meals served in the gleaming dining room, with
wide open doors pulled back to stunning Delta views.

The area supports the continent’s largest surviving
concentration of elephant and buffalo, while roan and sable
antelope roam the open woodlands. &Beyond Nxabega means
place of the giraffe and these animals are abundant in the
surrounding areas. One of the most common antelope in the
Okavango, the red lechwe is especially adapted for the
swampy conditions it lives in. Its splayed, elongated hooves
give it a sure footing, allowing it to inhabit the outskirts
of the permanent swamps. The Okavango is also a stronghold
for the endangered African wild dog, although sightings of
this rare animal are relatively uncommon.
Exhibiting a fascinating social structure, wild dog live
in packs led by a dominant pair, with a strict social
hierarchy. Although particularly nocturnal and difficult to
spot, leopard live in the dense riverine thickets of the
Delta. With an incredible wealth of species, the Okavango is
a haven for birding enthusiasts. One of its most sought
after species is the huge but elusive Pel’s fishing owl,
which roosts in the densest evergreen thickets. A
quintessential African sound, the haunting call of the fish
eagle can be heard echoing over the channels of the
The Delta also boasts the largest population of the
endangered wattled crane, a large and beautiful species. The
African jacana, with its extraordinarily long toes, skims
along the top of floating vegetation, giving the impression
that it is walking on water.
Camp Scenic Helicopter
Thrill to an aerial view of the Okavango Delta as you
soar above a vast maze of both permanent and fleeting
waterways. Fly over rivers and pools dotted with lily pads,
as well as a variety of wild animals that inhabit this
unique habitat. Additional costs apply.
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. No
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. No additional cost.
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. No additional cost -
