Sandibe has become the one of the best high end luxury safari camps in Botswana and is unquestionably a sight to behold. Designed around the body armor of a Pangolin the, domed main area and guest accommodation laced with overlapping wood plates the camp is unique and brings a freshness to safari design which we really like.
The interior décor of the very large main areas and the guest rooms has been carefully thought out and the result is simply breathtaking. It is a camp you’ll never want to leave and a place you’ll find wanting to spend time in, even sacrificing a game viewing activity for. The cuisine and service standards more than match the high end feel of the camp.
The main safari activity here are vehicle safaris, birding along with some walking safaris. It is also possible to take a scenic flight over the delta by Helicopter which we fully recommend but is an additional cost. The guiding here is of a very high standard as you’d expect.
The views across the plains are splendid with regular sightings of wildlife in front of camp. The game viewing is excellent and frankly competes very well with the much costlier Mombo Camps region of Moremi Central, deemed to be the greatest wildlife viewing in the Delta. Predators, notably Lion and Leopard are in abundance and are regularly seen along with a strong presence of the rest of the wildlife species you’d hope to see. Some quirky sightings of Honey badgers, Aardwolf, Civets and small cats seem fairly regular too.
Sandibe is a must do camp as part of a longer itinerary to Botswana or as a stand-alone camp for shorter trips. It remains a firm favorite of ours and has been included in the Tailormade Africa Collection of camps, a Gold standard of properties across Africa that we feel stand out.
