Set under Mangosteen and Waterberry trees, Water Lodge comprises three small, exclusive camps each with six double en suite lodges. Each lodge is air-conditioned and has its own private plunge pool and verandah. The design emphasis reflects ancient Zimbabwe and the river sweeping past in moods of blue slate, teakwood, mazista tiles and soft furnishings. Meals are prepared by accomplished chefs and served on the intimate riverside dining decks under the giant trees that envelop the lodge. Guests may enjoy twice-daily game drives in open safari vehicles, guided bush walks, boat cruises and canoeing. If requested the Lodge will arrange an excursion for those who wish to partake in the many optional activities in and around Victoria Falls. Join a late afternoon, relaxing river cruise to watch the magnificent African sun drop from the sky. Then enjoy a gourmet meal under the stars on the deck of the main dining area or in privacy on the verandah of your tented lodge. Your camp manager will discuss various touring and game viewing options with you in an effort to completely customize your stay at Matetsi to meet your interests and preferences.
AndBeyond Nxabega Okavango Safari Camp is located on the edge of the Okavango Delta in a 7 000-hectare (17 300 acre) exclusive wildlife concession bordering the Moremi Game Reserve in Botswana. Meaning “Place of the Giraffe”, Nxabega is ideally positioned to explore the magnificence of the Okavango – the largest inland delta in the world. A wetland wilderness of looping channels, islands forested with palms and wide grassy floodplains, the Delta is home to a magnificent array of wild animals and exceptional birdlife. Guests are able to experience this irresistible combination of water and wildlife on twice-daily game-drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles, mokoro (dugout canoe) and powerboat excursions. The Lodge’s nine exclusive and elegant tented suites are nestled under a canopy of African ebony trees and feature stylish en suite facilities, and private decks overlooking the reeded molapo (floodplain). Nxabega is an intimate camp, offering the height of sophistication and style within the heart of the Okavango Delta. Nxabega is unique in that it combines a water wilderness experience with the excitement of tracking the big game normally associated with the land camps. Game viewing opportunities include zebra, wildebeest, lion, leopard, cheetah, buffalo, elephant and giraffe.
AndBeyond Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge is set on a permanent channel of the magnificent Okavango Delta, adjacent to the game-rich Moremi Wildlife Reserve on a 270 square kilometer (104 square mile) private concession. The beautiful thatched lodge nestles between permanent water and grass-swept plains and was built with a commitment to ‘treading lightly on the earth’. The result is organic architecture that blends seamlessly with one of the most breathtaking landscapes in Africa. The eight African inspired cottages have their own private elevated game-viewing decks overlooking the Santantadibe River, en-suite facilities with twin basins, toilet and open air shower. There is also an overhead fan and gauze covered glassless windows. Sandibe is surrounded by an abundant array of wildlife and throughout the year, guests are enchanted by the changing moods of the Delta. The camp’s professional guides share the wonder of this wetland wilderness with guests on exhilarating game-drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles, interpretive bush walks, eco-craft and mokoro (dugout canoe) excursions.
