Where is Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge and what does it offer?

The lodge features the best the Okavango Delta has to offer in terms of both outstanding wildlife viewing and warm local hospitality.
Golden grassed floodplains inhabited by a staggering variety of wildlife stretch into the distance, framed by lush palm islands and the spires of giant termite mounds. A channel of clear, cool waters runs directly in front of the elevated guest suites; offering unrestricted views over the shimmering beauty of the Delta.
Guests can awaken to the sound of animals, laugh at the antics of baboons and squirrels over breakfasts and tread in the footsteps of elephants as they walk the ancient paths that bisect the forest. Days are spent exploring a maze of papyrus and the wide floodplains in search of wildlife.
