Value
Travelers' Choice
Rates from USD 1,140 per person per night. A maze of meandering water channels, papyrus-fringed banks and floating islands teeming with wildlife: known as the river that never finds the sea, Botswana’s Okavango Delta is the jewel of the Kalahari. In the heart of the Delta, on the edge of a waterway, you’ll find Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge. Situated on a diverse, wildlife-rich, private concession, Sandibe has exclusive traversing rights over a vast 22,500 hectares (55,600 acres) of wildlife land bordering the Moremi Game Reserve. The inspired organic design of the lodge melts into the surrounding forest canopy of wild palms and gnarled fig trees. Trees will shade you as you approach the lodge; an intriguing curl and sweep of shingled wood comes into view, resembling a giant scaled pangolin at rest. Stairs open onto the high ceilings of the copper-toned and glassless guest area overlooking the Delta. From this central dining area, the wooden deck stretches beyond the roof, while the upstairs bar and lounge extend along an elevated walkway to a viewing platform. A series of decks descend to the forest floor culminating in a log boma, with a small gym and private massage sala close by. Interior finishes throughout showcase the craftsmanship of Botswana’s artisans, and feature intricate basketware, sculpted wooden tables and unique feature pieces. While the main guest area is set within the forest, the twelve guest suites peep out from beneath its canopy. Raised above the papyrus-lined banks like golden weaver nests, each is a cocoon of privacy, with breathtaking views, a private plunge pool and cosy fireplace.

We have been fortunate to travel to many safari lodges in Southern Africa and this is a great one. We enjoyed our stay from the first to the last minute. Staff, incl. trackers and rangers, are very friendly and competent. We had exceptional sightings incl. a kill made by wild dog within an hour of our arrival. The main lodge and the rooms are beautifully designed and exceptionally positioned in their natural surroundings. The food was some of the best we have ever enjoyed in the bush. Only a couple of minor grievances: The design of the rooms is quite innovative but is not aging particularly well. Some of the woven wall structures on the deck are falling apart and do not look nice anymore. Our pool pump was quite loud, so staff kindly turned it off whenever we were in the room.

From the start &Beyond is the best company to stay with. The guides, staff, accommodations and vehicles could not have been better. It was a big plus to have a canvas roof on the SUV for the much needed shade in the afternoon. I can go on and on but you should just book your trip.

We had a wonderful stay at your lodge this December. This lodge is newly renovated, has a nice design and is in a excellent shape. It offers amazing safaris as well. What I like the most is the contrast of the nature and the intensity of animals you will see there. We have visited over 10 different camps in the okavango delta, including the chief's camp, Chitabe , little momb and Vumbura. Sandibe has become one of my top stops and I’m sure we come back in the future again to this lodge. Thank you for your hospitably and going beyond what I have expcted. Thank you very much for the wonderfull time.

Had a great 8 night stay at Sandibe. The staff and the food is as good as usual and the guide we had was the best. Having been to Africa many times I would recommend Botswana and Sandibe as your first exposure to Africa.

and beyonde sandibe was just right cherry on the cake to end our trip! Very welcoming, ultimate luxury and comfort as much as possible during safari! We saw a leopard which we didnt see before and a lot of lions, also visited hyenas place! Was very good and animals can be observed from really close! Food is great, dinners and lunches are different and interesting. Park is great. I ve read a bad comment about being stuck in the sand while driving... well.. its not new your road dear, it may happen on difficult roads or doing off roads! Especially liked the special dinner with music and kind of barbecue table. No wifi in common areas is big big plus!! People can actually start talking to each other. Spa and massages we great too. Well done guys No complains or suggestions. For those who is not budget concerned and prefers to stay in comfort.
