Like the cosy nests of golden weaver birds that line the banks of the channel, the eight elegant guest suites of &Beyond Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge peek out over the riverside reeds. Designed for both privacy and views, the suites are raised above the papyrus, peeking out from a canopy of wild palms and fig trees.
The suites’ organic design, complete with hand-woven exteriors, reinforces this cosy and intimate illusion. Looking out over the Delta, the suites are nestled into the big trees and thickets that spring up around the water’s edge.
Simple and organic, low-key décor complements the natural lines of the exteriors. A casual crocodile-embossed leather sofa for two and a naturally beautiful side table made from a tree trunk create an aura of casual comfort. The giant king-sized bed looks out on spectacular Delta views from underneath a dazzling white mosquito net. The sounds of Africa lull and soothe when you come awake in the morning, as elephants splash in the water, baboons chatter and birds call in the trees. Outdoor showers cater for those who simply cannot tear themselves away from the views, while discrete butler hatches add an aura of intimacy.
Sparkling private plunge pools mirror the cool waters of the Delta channels, while two large day beds invite guests to daydream away the afternoon gazing at a tranquil vista of water and sky. Presided over by twinkling, starry skies and set to the chorus of an orchestra of frogs, private meals are served on the large, elevated deck. Back inside, a wood-burning fireplace creates the ideal spot for cosy winter nights filled with reflection on adventures to be lived.
True African hospitality lies at the core of &Beyond's lodges and camps throughout the continent.
