Nxabega Tented Camp

Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp combines more than just two worlds - the remote and wild game viewing experience of Botswana’s lush grasslands offsets the intricate detail of the hidden world of the Delta’s waterways, while the simplicity of canvas merges with the elegance of an exclusive club.


We Love
  • A water and wildlife experience between the lagoons and channels of the Delta and the Okavango floodplains
  • Permanent Delta setting allows for mokoro and boat activities year-round
  • Late afternoon game drives continue after nightfall, with opportunities to see unbelievable night life, including the Pel’s fishing owl
Need to Know
  • Great fishing from March to December, with catches of tiger fish, bream, catfish and tilapia
  • Giraffe, elephant, kudu, red lechwe, tsessebe, buffalo and hippo, which graze around the camp at night
  • The camp is not fenced off and we request guests be extremely vigilant at all times. Security guards accompany guests at all times when walking around the camp at night.

The Review

Meaning “Place of the Giraffe,” Nxabega is ideally positioned to explore the magnificence of the Okavango. The wide open channels of the Delta spread in front of the camp, invite guests to discover a world full of adventure. Nine tented suites create an experience that is rugged yet luxurious; blend the remoteness of the breathtaking setting with utter comfort and style.

Lion, cheetah, leopard and African wild dog share the floodplains with large herds of elephant and buffalo. Hippo inhabit the deeper channels and lagoons, while honeybadgers can be seen in broad daylight. Tall termite mounds are homes for families of dwarf and banded mongoose. Traditional mokoro (dugout canoe) rides explore the delicate details of the glistening waterways, where iridescent dragonflies, frogs of every colour and jewel-like kingfishers live in the papyrus-lined banks.

Why Stay
Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp is located in an exclusive wildlife concession on the edge of the Okavango Delta, bordering the Moremi Game Reserve. Made from local timber, reed and thatch, the guest areas include indoor and outdoor dining areas, a Safari Shop and a swimming pool with an expansive viewing deck. From this springboard of comfort, guests are able to appreciate the exquisite beauty of the Okavango Delta. Private bush dinners, breakfasts in bed, lamplit cocktails on a river island or a walking safari with al fresco picnic are all provided with pleasure by Nxabega’s warm and friendly staff.

As dawn breaks over the African bush, tea is served. Your guide will discuss what you hope to see before setting out in an open 4x4 safari vehicle. Explore the floodplains and grasslands of the Delta in search of the Big Five, encountering large herds of elephant and buffalo or elegant sable and roan antelope.

Return to the Camp for hot breakfast followed by a quick siesta before lunch. Cool off with a refreshing dip in the Camp's pool. Then enjoy a late afternoon tea before you embark on your afternoon adventure. Explore the Delta on a mokoro or in a motorised boat. Dozens of bird species lie waiting to be explored at eye level. Return to the camp for dinner served under African skies. Then relax around a glowing campfire.

Getting There

Most major international airlines from Europe, the United States, Asia and Australia fly to Johannesburg, South Africa, which is the easiest route into Botswana. Air Botswana operates scheduled flights to Maun or Kasane. From there, it is a short flight by light aircraft to the Nxabega airstrip, where they will be welcomed by staff. A 2 hour drive in an open safari vehicle completes the journey to the Camp.
