I don't know where to start. I can't believe we had such an incredible experience. Not one thing went wrong. We took a three week trip through Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa. Nxabega was the last camp we went to, and probably the best. I agree with the writer who mentions Kitsu, who was also our butler. She is unbelievable. Professional, thoughtful and knew just what we want when we want it. How does she do that? Our driver, Kuks and his tracker, Jose (pronounced Joe-say) were excellent. We saw every living thing Okavanka Delta has to offer but a rhino. The tents are gorgeous, comfortable and perfect for viewing. Every night we were visited by a family of eles who were happily munching away at mid night. We had our own resident warthog and some bush bucks. We left Nxabega Nov. 2 and it was getting oppressively hot. Summer is starting, rains will come and all will turn green and lush, not the best time for animal viewing. So we got there just in time! Lest I forget, the chefs are outstanding, food delish. Even the housekeeper is a marvel. It was wonderful coming back to our beautiful tent after the morning drive to find all clean and spotless. Cannot say enough about Nxabega. If we have the chance, we will definitely go back for more than three days.

Room tip: Tent 8 was spectacular. Eles seemed to prefer this area at night.

We have stayed three nights in this beautiful camp. The lodge is really marvelous so is the terrace with the swing chair.
The common area is also astonishing as is the pool with the sun-beds. The view over the waters is unbelievable and you are surrounded by the animals. Kitso our Butler did everything to make our stay remarkable and she did succeed.
We did the game drives, the mokoro (canu) Trip as well as the boat drive on the delta. Really very nice. Wildlife was everything you can hope for.

Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp was the second &Beyond site that we stayed at during our recent, wonderful trip to beautiful Botswana and we enjoyed every minute of our time there! On arrival, after our flight from Kasane, we were met by the camp managers, Rhiana and Judy, together with members of their really friendly team. We were then shown to our 'tent', home for the next three nights! The tents are really well laid out. There is an inside and outside shower and good storage space. They is an electric floor fans which, given the limited time you really spend in the tent and the cool nights, is really quite adequate to circulate the air. We never lowered the blinds, as the tents are well-positioned and a discrete distance from each other, with great views. The camp is not fenced, so at night and sometimes during the day, animals wander around freely. We certainly had visits from various antelopes, warthogs and monkeys. Because of that, the staff escort you to and from your rooms at night and early morning. The communal areas at the camp are very good and the food excellent, with meals served in different areas each night, including an excellent bar-b-q one night in the boma. Do try the Botswana beef, as it is absolutely delicious but I do question whether serving various antelope, that you have had the joy of seeing running wild during the day, is good practice. Rhiana, Judy and team go out of their way to make sure you enjoy yourself and thank you to the whole team for making our stay so memorable. The animal drives (I hate the term game drives!) were great and if you can, do ask for Richard as your guide and 'candyman' as your tracker, because they are passionate about their work and the animals, which was so nice to experience. Thanks to both of them! In addition to the animal drives, we really enjoyed the boat and Mokoro rides along the channels of the delta. We had a great three nights at Nxabega and were sorry to leave. It was such a memorable stay and we would not hesitate in recommending a stay there to anybody visiting the Okavango Delta.

Room tip: We had tent 2, which was discretely positioned, with good views over the grasses of the delta,

Just finished 2 nights at Nxabega and it was great. This was our second trip with &Beyond and once again service was 5 star. Our "tent" was in great shape, the view from our let us see Elephants and other animals walk by. One morning when heading to the lodge for out drive we were held up by two Elephants walking past. Our guide Gee was enthusiastic and just as excited as were were to find the baby Leopard hanging out in the tree. The food was excellent and there is nothing better than stopping on your morning drive to have coffee and snacks in the middle of the park. Since the camp is in the Okavango Delta we were able to do a dugout canoe ride at sunset which was a highlight.

Fantastic stay in a beautiful lodge...extremely attentive staff with dedicated butlers for each of the 10 rooms. The food was fantastic, afternoon tea was always something different and they had attendants behind each dish with glass domes making sure everything stayed hot and free of flies...

There is a resident pair of hippos that lives in the pond in front of the lodge, you can hear them eating and "talking" at night - it's dark but when one of the staff shines a light you can see them scurry behind a bush.

There are various species of Antelope grazing the property along with mongoose, monkeys and the occasional warthog - we also had some rather large elephants join us for breakfast one morning - I was enjoying being within trunk's length but our guide suggested I move to the other side of the table. I love being right in the middle of things!

Gee was our guide and TT our tracker...they were both extremely knowledgeable down to everything including the types of grass and water table depth under the termite mounds! They were also both really nice guys and made the entire stay fun and exciting...

As a previous reviewer pointed out, since Nxabega is the only lodge on such an enormous piece of land - the animal density is thin as they have so much room to spread out. Even having said that, TT and Gee were fantastic trackers and found us Lion brothers splayed out with the remains of a hippo between them, leopards and twin cubs, elephants galore, giraffes, zebra, hippos, more lions, the requisite herds of antelope and birds and sort of tour of the Okavango Delta which has a very different landscape than any other stop on our safari tour.

The other feature of Nxabega is they do both Mokoro and Motorboat safari - the Mokoro is a thin canoe you go out really just to enjoy the scenery. The motorboat we saw hippos and followed elephants submerged up to their shoulders foraging for fresh greens.

We even got chased by a trumpeting baby elephant which was beyond adorable.

Because this was our big concern going in, I'll mention the room. The tents themselves while as luxurious as a tent can possibly get is still a tent so you will need to zip the front when it's time for bed and kill the occasional spider. It really turned out to be no big deal and the deck overlooking the delta was gorgeous. They aren't air conditioned which wasn't too bad for us - I was more worried about being cold at night due to lack of heating but this wasn't a problem at all.

The inner delta at its finest!!

Room tip: We were in room 10 which was the furthest from the lodge, it was about a 5 minute walk
