Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp (formerly known as Nxabega Safari Camp – and often to most of us simply as "Nxabega") is in a area of mixed woodlands and floodplains situated within a 70km² private concession in Botswana’s Okavango Delta, to the west of Chief's Island. The camp’s pedigree is good, and it aims for a very high standard of food, comfort and care. There’s both dry land and water around, and so it offers both game drives and mokoro/boating activities.

Our view of Nxabega Safari Camp

Nxabega was the height of ‘safari chic’ when it was built, although time and the environment have taken their toll. Now, despite looking a little worn in parts and (in our opinion) in need of some updating, we still think that Nxabega is a lovely camp – with high standards of friendly service, good guiding and imaginative food. During the dry season, Nxabega isn’t usually top of our list for guaranteed high game densities; then we think of this camp more for its water-based activities. But during Botswana’s green season, the story is different – and whilst game sightings are less easy everywhere, then Nxabega comes into its own and is a good choice for game-viewing.
