Overview of Little Sable
Little Sable is an intimate lodge situated on the edge of the Okavango Delta in the Khwai Private Reserve, bordering the renowned Moremi Game Reserve. Surrounded by sprawling grasslands and a network of lily-filled waterways, it offers unparalleled opportunities to observe an abundance of wildlife in their natural habitat. Khwai’s wetlands and rivers are home to hippos and crocodiles, its woodlands hide shy sable antelope and leopard, while lion and cheetah patrol the open floodplains for prey. The bird life is amazing, and the area has a reputation for rarities like wild dogs, serval cats, honey badgers, and the ever-elusive pangolin.
Little Sable’s private setting allows for close-up sightings and night drives, both of which make for more detailed and atmospheric experiences. Guided walks and canoe trips (when water levels allow) add to the ways you can experience the landscape. On mekoro and boat trips, look out for aquatic birds like jacana, tiny painted reed frogs, elephants wading in the water, and gorgeous water lilies.
The camp offers comfort and convenience, including convivial campfires, en suite tented accommodation with private outdoor showers, and suppers under the stars. The open-sided game-viewing vehicles are well-suited for the task of comfortable game viewing, taking a maximum of six guests, offering every passenger a “window” seat. To appreciate the meandering waterways and the wildlife below from a different perspective, we suggest booking a scenic helicopter flight during your stay.

Rooms at Little Sable
Unwind and relax, in your own private luxury
There are eight twin suites on offer at Little Sable, each with private outdoor showers and private viewing decks with views across the shimmering grasslands. Raised on wooden platforms, the tents can be made up with a double bed or twins and you have the convenience of an adjoining private bathroom with a toilet and shower. The tents have electricity supply for bedside lights and battery recharging plus hot running water, powered by solar energy.
There is plenty of storage space for bags and equipment inside; step outside and you find a small private deck with beautiful views over the floodplains in front of the camp, often complete with browsing elephants and antelope.
Serenely set under mature trees and overlooking huge open floodplains, Little Sable is centred on its main building, featuring a spacious open-plan dining room and lounge equipped with Wi-Fi and plug points for all your charging needs. A short set of steps takes you to the sunken fire pit, where plush chairs and a nearby well-stocked bar await, making it the perfect spot for relaxation and socialising. The main lodge area boasts a sparkling swimming pool, complete with an expansive lookout deck that offers breathtaking vistas of the surrounding wilderness.
As an eco-camp, Little Sable is committed to sustainability and operates on solar energy. This means that you’ll never have to worry about running out of power to recharge your batteries and devices.
Your day begins with an early wake-up call, accompanied by your choice of tea or coffee with homemade biscuits. Depending on the season, you may have breakfast before or after your morning game drive, after which there is lunch and an afternoon high tea to look forward to. A 3-course supper ends the day, served, like all meals, at a long communal table in the main dining area or outside – either way your view will be that of the unfettered wilderness. Food is fresh and wholesome, using as much local produce as possible.
