Surrounded by forest, Sandibe’s twin-bedded cottages are styled in a fusion of ochers and tactile textures, with airy screen walls opening onto exceptional views of the Okavango Delta wetlands and savanna. The central dining and sitting area is tucked under a soaring canopy of trees.
Highlights & Activities
After your evening game-drive, enjoy a delicious alfresco banquet of Pan- African cuisine in the boma (outdoor) illuminated by dozens of candles and lanterns. Alternatively, your private deck provides a romantic setting for intimate candlelit dinners. Sandibe is also known for wonderful bush picnics in surprising settings. Sandibe’s thrilling safaris: Explore the magic of the Okavango Delta on twice-daily interpretive game-drives, guided bush walks, and captivating mokoro and eco-craft excursions.
Interpretive bush walks:
Explore the Okavango Delta on interpretive wilderness walks with a professional CC Africa guide steeped in knowledge of the local fauna and flora, and get up-close-and-personal with Sandibe’s magnificent wilderness.
Experienced CC Africa rangers and Botswana trackers will lead you on exhilarating game-drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles. Spotlit night game-drives are especially exciting as we explore the thrilling drama of the African bush at night, possibly revealing hunting prides of lion or the elusive leopard.
Tranquil mokoro (dugout canoes) and eco-craft excursions:
Few memories can equal being poled through the channels of the Okavango Delta in a mokoro by an experienced guide, or on Lily – Sandibe’s stylish silent electric wooden eco-craft. These boat excursions may be enjoyed throughout the year and are best during the flood season from June to September.
Sandibe offers abundant birdwatching opportunities with 349 species recorded here. Waterbirds flock to the marshes – storks, herons, kingfishers and brightly-coloured bee-eaters – and you have an excellent chance of spotting the Pel’s fishing owl, one of only three fishing owls in Africa, while enjoying a mokoro or eco-craft excursion.
