Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp Guest Stories
It is always a pleasure to receive feedback on how the &Beyond experience has touched our guests. For many of them, a life-long love affair with Africa's wide open spaces and its incredible wildlife has started at one of our lodges across the continent. Others have formed lasting friendships with the warm and welcoming &Beyonders they have met on safari. Here is just a sample of the incredible comments we have been receiving from our guests staying at Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp.
Lars Nordqvist - A dream come true
A DREAM COME TRUE
"Nxabega (June 19-21) I have dreamt about once visiting Okavango since I was a little boy. Suddenly, being in a small aircraft flying into the delta was almost unreal for me. Looking down on elephants, hippos and the beautiful landscape made my dream come true. "
After a long game drive we arrived to our first camp there we were kindly welcomed by Thuli, Keledi, Precious and the very skilled and cool tracker BT. We all enjoyed this outstanding camp site and its beautiful surroundings very much. Highlights? Perhaps watching the giraffes walking by when taking a shower in the afternoon? Or listening to the hippos and frogs when going to bed for the night? Or having dinner under the huge sausage tree listening to Jakes many stories about the delta? Or our first encounter with lions? Most likely we all vote for this one: coming back to the camp the second day, a herd of elephants were blocking our way. Soon we had the privilege to experience a mock charge towards us. It was very exciting indeed to watch the old matriarch trumpeting loudly while flipping her ears, stopping only a few meters from the vehicle. And yes, we took lots of pictures! (Actually, over 9000 pictures in total during this trip.)
Urrutia, Gonzalo - Africa's enchanting
I just arrive from my trip in Southern Africa. During this journey with family and friends we experienced 4 different &Beyond lodges 2 in South Africa, Phinda Forest and Phinda Mountain and 2 in Botswana Sandibe and Nxabega. I must and want to say that they are not just great accommodation premises with enchanting decoration and excellent cuisine but in the end, what makes the difference, is the people at &Beyond. From our travel planner Carla Glasspool to the last of the house keepers, they all made their best to ensure we got the most out of our Xmas Holidays and indeed they achieve it. THANKS EVERYBODY AT &Beyond. We will repeat the experience with you again in our next trip to Africa. This company is Highly Recommended. Gonzalo Urrutia, Madrid. Spain
Dietrich, Goebel - Best Guide
"Max is the best guide, who can lead closer to the African nature and world/behaviour of animals."
We had many tours with guides but Max was the best. He is sensitive and has a good sense of humor. Dietrich Goebel
Diane Woodard - Botswana with &Beyond!
"Botswana with &Beyond!"
Sleeping under canvas at Nxabega was one of the most romantic experiences ever. Bouncing off-road at Sandibe on our very first game drive to actually see a beautiful leopard just as the sun was going down - well, it can hardly get any better. Sitting around a large table with people from all over the world talking excitedly like children at a birthday party - simply magic.
David Cobb - Delta Dreams
"Magic ... pure magic. That is the only way to describe the experience. We could have never imagined the pure, life-affirming joy we experienced during our stay."
Immersed in some of the world's most beautiful landscapes, surrounded by Africa's most majestic of creatures, and hosted and befriended by some of the warmest people we have ever encountered - no other travels we have ever done can compare to our &Beyond experience.
