Location: Nxabega is in a private concession west of Chief’s Island in the heart of the Okavango Delta. The airstrip is about a 10 minute drive away.

Rooms: There are 9 tented rooms including a family room. They were renovated and reconfigured in early 2018. All have a bedroom with a door leading out to a large deck with chairs, a table and a covered sala. To the rear of the bedroom there’s a dressing room and beyond that a bathroom with a flush toilet, basin and shower, and you’ll also have an outdoor shower. The family tent consists of 2 tents linked by a walkway.

Activities: Nxabega offers daily game drives, all year round and seasonally you can enjoy mokoro and motor boat crusies. 

Facilities: The main area is a large thatched building with panelled walls, divided into a lounge with armchairs and sofas and a supply of games and books, a bar and a dining room. The main deck is often used for outdoor dining as well as wildlife watching. A short distance away there’s a pool and a sunbathring deck. The camp has a gift shop and spa. Nxabega offers a free laundry service.

Dining: Meals are usually eaten communally though individual tables can be arranged.

Children: Children of all ages are welcome, and the WILDchild programme provides entertainment and activities for young ones. The family tent is two adjacent tnets linked by a covered walkway. There are age limits for different activities: children below the age of 6 years cannot participate in wildlife activities; those aged 12 years and older are permitted on game drives, and those between 6 and 12 can take part at the discretion of the camp manager; boat trips are available to those over 16, but children aged 12 and over may be able to take part at the discretion of the manager. The minimum age for bush walks and mokoro rides is 16. Guests booking the family tent have the use of a private safari vehicle. Child minders can look after children who cannot go on activities.

Health: This is a malarial area.

Communication: There is Wi-Fi internet access in the main area of the camp.
