A short flight will take you to Khwai Private Reserve, where you’ll settle into your bright and breezy tent at Sable Alley.
Sable Alley is a piece of light, bright and beautiful luxury amid the game-rich floodplains of Khwai, and the best news is that it’s as sustainable as it is sophisticated. The Khwai Private Reserve provides access to diverse habitat on the northern edge of the Okavango Delta. This habitat includes water, flood plains, riparian woodlands and mopane woodland and supports healthy populations of plains game as well as predators including lion, leopard and wild dog. Elephants occur in abundance and there are sightings of the sable antelope for which camp is named.
The camp has incredible vistas, overlooking a lagoon and onward over vast flood plains, and comprises a main area with lounge, bar, and fire pit. The camp also features a swimming pool and sun deck, both unique spots from which to watch the hippo pods emerge from the lagoon, or simply for some chill-out time in the heat of the day. The ten twin and two family tents are raised to provide incomparable views over the floodplains. All are en-suite with private verandas and both indoor and outdoor showers.
Fulfil your stay at Sable Alley with a game drive along the Khwai River, watching the comings and goings of the wildlife, mokoro excursions (water levels dependent), or lace up your walking boots and explore the reserve on foot. The game viewing in the area around Sable Alley is fantastic, and you’ll find lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo all in close proximity as well as a multi-coloured array of birdlife.
For some chill-out time after a day of activities, watch the happenings at the lagoon from the bar, G&T in hand, from the outdoor fire pit, or from a squashy sofa in the lounge. At night, dine either in the indoor dining area or alfresco on the deck, accompanied by twinkling stars and the rumblings and grumblings of the wildlife before retiring to your tent.
