andBeyond Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp, Okavango Delta, Botswana
Why We Love It:
Quite a mouthful, Nxabega for short is another andBeyond property that makes the list here set within an exclusive 7,000 hectares private wildlife concession looking out over expansive lagoons where elephants and occasional predators roam freely. A "combination camp" with game drive safaris and mokoro and boating activities, the stunning camp is the place to be off and in green season where game viewing is superb.
Best Time To Visit:
May to September during the dry cool season with virtually no rainfall. The lesser vegetation during this period offers more opportunities to spot wildlife that concentrate around the waterholes and rivers. June is especially a great month for sightings of African Wild Dogs, the undoubted stars of the Okavango where during this time, the alpha pair will look for dens for new arrivals into the family.
