June marks the reopening of not one, but two andBeyond luxury safari camps; the rustic yet elegant nine-tent Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp in Botswana’s wildlife-rich grasslands the intimate, and the six-suite Phinda Rock Lodge overlooking Leopard Rock in South Africa.
The stunning Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp, as the name suggests, is where Botswana’s Okavango Delta takes centre stage. Prime vistas of the surrounding savannah—and the elephants, lions, and zebras that call it home—can be found at the camp’s swimming pool, lined with salas and padded loungers for prime game viewing. In the newly renovated guest rooms, natural materials like local timber, reed, and thatch juxtapose plush furnishings and leather accents.
Meanwhile, a new open-air boma on the Delta’s edge—partially covered by the large, looming ebonies above—is the perfect way to end a long day of exploration in the bush.
Very, very nice! If only we could afford to visit. But we can all dream, right?
