Botswana Explorer

Accommodations

Meno a Kwena
Location
Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, Botswana

Situated between the sprawling Okavango Delta and the Central Kalahari Game Reserve near Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, this camp offers a comfortable retreat in nine traditional canvas tents overlook the Boteti River. The camp's name translates to “teeth of the crocodile,” referencing the common presence of these reptiles chilling out on nearby riverbanks. Style supersedes opulence in Meno a Kwena's cool, relaxed atmosphere. Tent sides roll up to take in the broad vista, but your private space remains hidden among thorny branches that offer seclusion and protection from wandering wildlife. Each tent has an en suite flush toilet and authentic indoor and outdoor safari showers. Furnishings are distinctly African, with dark wood, bold textiles and woven carpets under foot. Harnessing the power of Botswana’s typically sunny days, solar power fires the camp’s energy-efficient lights as well as your camera battery charger. This is a low-impact camp that supports recycling and recognizes water as a limited and precious resource.

In addition to game drives over adjacent grasslands and salt pans, a visit to the camp also offers a chance to engage with local Bushmen and learn about their age-old culture. Explore the surrounding habitat on foot with a resident guide, then cruise the languid Boteti River on a boat. Afterward, relax in the natural rock plunge pool with views over the river—quite possibly overlooking a herd of frolicking elephants. Share stories in tented outdoor spaces and meals under the boundless night sky.
Nat Hab Expedition Camp—Northern Okavango
Location
Okavango Delta, Botswana

Slide in closer to the real Africa as you delve into this authentic safari experience at the heart of the wildlife-teeming Okavango Delta. Enjoy the solitude of a small expedition camp within a gigantic wilderness—the rustic mobile camp with just eight tents is exclusive for your group's visit. We'll be situated in a prime location to encounter lion, leopard, elephant, hippo and more. And while it’s infinitely comfortable, these Meru-style canvas tents are grounded in traditional old-school charm. Dark wood and iron campaign furniture, Oriental rugs and lantern lights fill the cozy indoor spaces, while white table cloths, flickering candles and vintage chairs grace your al fresco dining experience.  Each tent has an en suite bathroom and flush toilet, but your bucket shower and lack of electricity in your tent keep it real—since this is a genuine bush camp after all. After game drives, sink into plush lounge pillows in the shady tea tent, where you can recharge your batteries, both personally and electronically. And when you tuck in at night, it’s with thick blankets, hot water bottles and nothing but the wild sounds of the Okavango. The custom-tailored camp bends to the season, too. When the water levels are right, there’s the option for fishing and mokoro explorations, too.


Little Sable Camp
Location
Khwai Private Reserve, Okavango Delta, Botswana

With wide-open views out your tent door that make you feel truly one with nature, this camp in the heart of the game-rich Khwai Private Reserve has been completely revamped to upgrade the interiors and service level while maintaining its intimate and relaxed simplicity. Eight traditional tents on raised wooden platforms have a king-size bed (which can be converted to two twins), writing desk, en suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers, and private viewing deck surveying the shimmering grasslands, including a popular elephant and zebra grazing area. Design and decor blend a touch of old-world English heritage with African-inspired artistry. The broader redesign includes the extension of the outside deck to create a larger lounge and dining space, sheltered under thatch. The firepit area has been enhanced to provide an even more inviting opportunity to sit around the crackling logs, gin and tonic in hand, surrounded by the sounds of the night and spray of stars overhead. The pool area has also been enlarged, improving this unexpected game-viewing platform.

The private Khwai concession, an expanse of nearly half a million acres, teems with Botswana’s most famous wildlife. Offering an experience of the Okavango Delta that’s second to none, Little Sable is surrounded by vast floodplains, sprawling savannas and patches of forest laced with a maze of channels and lily-filled waterways. Gain varied perspectives from classic game drives (including night drives to view nocturnal species) to mokoro (poled canoe) trips and boat safaris when seasonal water levels allow. Ground-level hides offer breathtaking close-up wildlife encounters. Regardless of your safari mode, you are assured a true wilderness experience, as guests at Little Sable are mostly alone among the wildlife in a region where visitors are few. From the camp’s exceptional location, look for lion, leopard, giraffe, roan, kudu and the namesake sable antelope, among many other species. The wetlands and rivers host impressive quantities of hippo and crocodile. Khwai also has an excellent reputation for the rarer species of the African savanna including wild dog, serval, honey badger and the elusive pangolin. Birdlife is outstanding, and guests can expect everything from giant eagle owls to lilac-breasted rollers.
