&Beyond Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge is located just south of Chief's Island in one of the most beautiful regions of the delta, near the ever-flowing Santandabie channel. Sandibe's site was specifically chosen for its extraordinary beauty, its prime location on the permanent delta and its proximity to the wildlife-rich grassy plains. Set in a cool forest canopy of wild palms and gnarled fig trees, the lodge overlooks a permanent papyrus waterway. The public areas face towards the sunset with three cottages to the north and five cottages to the south. All the cottages are spaced out in order to afford maximum privacy while still being within safe walking distance from the public areas.
