Hotels in Okavango Delta
Set along the Boro River in Botswana’s Okavango Delta, Sanctuary Retreat's intimate eco-lodge is built from plaster, burlap, and 150,000 aluminum cans collected from the local community.
Ride the world's largest land mammals at Abu Camp, a 400,000-acre reserve established in 1990 to help once-captive animals return to the wild. Guests sleep in antique mahogany beds in raised tents with private balconies.
The middle of nowhere, recast as one of the sexiest places on earth?Only in Africa—the stark Makgadikgadi Pans in northeastern Botswana, to be precise.
The unique location of this safari camp—it’s set on the island of Xaxaba, smack-dab among the waterways of the Okavango Delta—means you’ll do more of your game viewing via mokoro (traditional carved canoe) than you will via Jeep.
The Moremi Wildlife Reserve—an 1,880-square-mile national park in the heart of the Okavango Delta—provides the dramatic setting for this luxury tented camp.
Activities at this renovated tent encampment include canoeing in the river delta and guided tours on nearby islands.
Xudum’s design is eclectic and contemporary—a departure from traditional safari décor. The nine suites have canopied platform beds, and atop each structure is a viewing deck furnished with a king-size bed and binocular—perfect for viewing the elephants as they graze around the camp.
Two groups of tents, featuring plunge pools and unshaded decks for prime bird-watching, linked by raised walkways.
