Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge 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 Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge.
Kelly, Mike - absolutely amazing
"Our trip was something we have wanted to do for a life time. We spent 12 days in africa but the last three days at Sandibe Safari Lodge was the highlight of our trip. The night before we left the staff set up a very special candle light dinner on a boat for my wife and I. The dinner was fantastic but that was expected as every meal was gourmet. "
What we loved was the kindness, thoughfulness and pleasantness of the entire staff. I have travel around the world but I have to tell you this, Sandibe has now become my most memorable vacation location. I will return some day and in the mean time I will strongly recommend this enchanted place for anyone looking for an amazing African experience in the delta. I can not say enough positive things about every single person who worked there.

"Sandibe was the 2nd destination in our 'world tour of Botswana' and we will be forever grateful to Jennifer Tooley (our South African travel agent) who made the itinerary. A private reserve of 270 km2 means you are allowed to do off road game drives and how exiting this turned out to be!"
We've seen Leopard and Cheetah so close, we will probably never see again in our life. Located in the Okavanga delta means driving through heavy terrain with powerful 4-wheel vehicles. Our guides Speedy and Baba showed us many, many things and now looking back, we felt so sorry we hadn't stayed a few days longer. The staff was very, very friendly and attentive, and the service like other &Beyond camps we have visited, simply impeccable. We'll be back!
Hunter, Judy - Amazing Safaris
"It was the most amazing adventure of my life!!! Loved every minute of it!! The staff at Sandibe where incredible and I will always cherish meeting Speedy and James our guides, so amazing and informative!! My namesake, Judy at the camp was an absolute love!!! I will never forget these people who made the trip of a lifetime for me!!!!!"
I will always remember them in my heart and hope, God willing to return to see them one day. The wildlife we saw was incredible. I find it hard to describe to my friends at home how enjoyable and amazing it was. I tell them them about &Beyond and to go to the website. I also have the magazine depicting all the &Beyond camps in Africa. It is so well done and I have certainly generated lots of interest back here in B.C. Canada. Well Done!!
Lambert, Richard & Patricia - Amazing!

"This was the most amazing trip my husband and I took. We went in December 09, the weather was incredible but what made this trip were all the people that worked at the camp. We couldn't wait to wake up each morning to start another game drive. We saw some amazing things from the African wild dogs on our first 15 minute of arriving to mom and baby leopard eating a catch up in a tree!"
Our guide Salbo was the best! He took such good care of us and he even set up an amazing afternoon picnic by a beautiful waterhole. What a treat and pleasant surprise! We were scheduled to go to another camp afer 3 nights but decided to stay in Sandibe and we were not disappointed! We saw 4 out of the Big 5 animals. I think our most special animal we saw was the leopard on our last day. What a beautiful creature. The camp staff then surprised us on our last night with the most beautiful candle lite dinner on a boat with songs and a gourmet dinner with the wine that we love. We cannot tell you enough about our trip. Truly a grip of a lifetime! Thank you Sandibe camp staff!!!
Hans Søndergaard - Candlelight Dinner
"On the last night of our stay at Sandibe, just returning from the evening game drive, the staff surprised us with a candlelit dinner on our sun deck."
The staff really went to the extreme to make this the most romantic experience in our life. We bear this evening deep in our hearts and will never forget the beautiful people that made this possible.
