With only nine en suite tents and set within a 7 000 hectare private concession in the western Okavango Delta, Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp offers guests a deluxe entry into one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa. At Nxabega – which means ‘place of the giraffe’ – you could happen on grazing lechwe, aquatic antelope uniquely adapted to their water world, or swimming marsh bucks. Birders might get one of the ultimate ‘big ticks’: an amber-winged Pel’s fishing owl that swoops over the Delta by night.

A classic Okavango excursion is a tranquil mokoro or canoe trail through the reeds where you will be up close to pale pink lilies, miniscule frogs and jewel-like kingfishers. Of course, the Delta is also home to bigger game: expect elephant, buffalo, lion and – if your luck is in – a gorgeous tree-climbing leopard. Speed freaks and anglers will enjoy motor boating while sunset cruises to picturesque viewing spots round out the day before dinner.

Nxabega’s very roomy tents are strung under black-wooded ebony trees and anchored by a luxurious dining and living area with views onto the water. Because the concession is unfenced, diners can sometimes enjoy views of passing elephant families, the matriarchs gently keeping their little ones in line and guiding them through the glistening water.

The phenomenal staff at Nxabega will do their utmost to try to accommodate any special dining requests, like a romantic candlelit dinner à deux for honeymooners.


As there are only nine tents at Nxabega, and they are each placed 20m apart, you have both comfort and privacy. Each tent is situated on a raised teak platform and includes a private balcony and an en suite bathroom, which features a flush toilet, large shower and a well-lit vanity. Tents balance practical elements – fans, safes and hairdryers – with the romantic – mottled cowhide rugs, hand-hewn furniture and softly glowing lanterns.

Traveller Reviews

  • The camps in Botswana were awesome! We loved them, the team, the scenery, the tents.....the food....everything!

    Bernardo Remy, June 2014
  • We loved every bit of our stay. Our guides were outstanding, we loved the canoe trip, sunset drinks on the shore, the safari drives and the knowledge of our guide and spotter, the boat trip, morning and afternoon teas in the wild, the attention of our own butler, the food, the rooms, the personal attention of the young managers and the way every need was accommodated and met with minimum fuss. The wildlife was not profuse but we saw a leopard, elephants, a lion, zebras, buffalo, antelope, wildebeest, giraffes, hyenas, hippos and colorful birds. Overall every minute of our stay was wonderful and the flight to Maun via another lodge was panoramic and overall Nxabega very best way to finish up an incredible 18 days.

  • The accommodation was fantastic, food great, people friendly.

    Sue Jones, May 2012
  • The Nxabega camp was very luxurious, in fact I would not call it a camp as it was as good as a five star hotel. Again, the food, service and general amenities were top of the range. In all three of these, the guides were first class and went to considerable trouble to find animals and to provide all our needs and requests. Indeed, I found that all staff in the three locations were extremely friendly and helpful and made us feel "at home". I did like the complete upfront payment covering all food, alcahol and clothes washing, it really made us feel cared for.

    John Cooper, April 2012
  • We had a fabulous time and it was an amazing experience for my mother in law for her first safari. Both the lodges were lovely and made us feel so welcome with a nice touch from the Savuti Safari Lodge giving us a bottle of bubbly for our anniversary and the food expecially at Nxabega was absolutely delicious.

    Guy Kent, October 2011
  • All the camps were fabulous - a different experience in each one. Nxgabega was lovely as well - again the all the members of staff were charming and helpful .

    Elizabeth Watkins, September 2010
  • Nxabega was especially good- with the mokora ride, motor boat ride, and the armed walk. Loved it all.
