Sandibe Camp, Chitabe Concession, Botswana
Sandibe Camp is stylish, comfortable and totally original in design, built in a grove of jackalberry, fig tree and ilala palms. In the main boma, thick tree branches extend through the walls and roof and huge tree trunks hold up the curved wooden roof. It's not unusual to look up from lunch and find an inquisitive baboon high up above having a good look at you, while fruit bats roost high up in the beams in the evenings.
Paths meander through the forest and lead to 12 suites including one family room of two interconnecting suites. The suites are simple and low-key yet elegant, using natural resources to provide every amenity necessary. King size beds offer views of the delta, where elephant wade in the early mornings and the wood-burner offers cosy warmth on chilly winter evenings. The bathroom consists of double basins behind the bed partition, a separate toilet and both indoor and outdoor showers. Outside on the private deck is two day beds and a small private plunge pool to while away a peaceful afternoon.
As part of the main body of the camp you will find a gym and luxurious spa. There is Wi-Fi throughout the camp, available in all of the rooms and lounge area too.
Activities at Sandibe include game drives and walks. Game drives are particularly good at Sandibe across plains areas as well as small forests. They are taken slowly, not dashing from place to place, and both a guide and spotter accompany you. Perhaps it is to this that we can attribute their skill at finding the more-elusive animals such as leopard and wild dog. After the day's activities, dinner is usually served outside, lit up by candelabras in the small boma area or on your private deck.
