Nxabega Lodge

Everything about Nxabega Lodge (‘place of the giraffe’) suggests the dignified elegance of its namesake. This tented safari camp discreetly blends into its surroundings, nestled among towering ebony trees, and overlooking seasonal floodplains and mature mopane woodland. Within a few steps, the renowned wetland paradise of the Okavango Delta is yours for the exploring.


Ideally position on the western border of the Moremi Game Reserve, Nxabega Lodge is set in a 25 000 ha private wildlife concession famed for its embarrassment of wildlife riches. The combination of land and permanent water habitat delivers exceptional sightings of all the large mammals, as well as dry land and wetland-specialist antelopes.

Camp description

The camp’s design maximises the bewitching views from every angle of the main area, as well as the tented suites. High ceilings and extensive teak decking cleverly amplify the sense of space in the main area, inviting deep contemplation of the permanent lagoon in front of camp. Dying for a skinny decaf latte? No problemo, the trained barista will pull the perfect cup in seconds, with no judgement. When you’re not browsing the shelves of the lounge, the irresistible pool demands your attention at siesta time, offering comfortable loungers and salas for shade. And with safari cuisine notoriously generous, save a bit of space for boma night, and the open-air feast that awaits.


Set on raised decks, the nine capacious guest tents have enormous beds, en-suite bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers, and large private verandas with a separate shaded sitting area, and swing-bed that simply can’t be ignored. Another siesta time must-do with your bird book and binos, to make the most its superb, sheltered viewpoint. And when you’ve filled a memory card, fill your friends’ feeds with your photos, because Wi-Fi is available in all the guest tents.

Activities and experience

In addition to the usual morning and evening game drives, ask about a walking safari. There’s no better way to get acquainted with your impossibly gorgeous Okavango surroundings than on foot with a profoundly passionate guide. Tigerfish occur here, so just imagine the dinner-table conversation if you tick that legend off your bucket list on a catch-and-release fishing expedition.
