An intimate camp with sweeping views of the Khwai Private Reserve’s grasslands
Nestled against a backdrop of verdant foliage and shady trees, Little Sable is an intimate lodge in the Okavango Delta. The eco-friendly lodge is set on raised wooden stilts, and looks out over the surrounding grasslands, with an eagle-eye view of the comings and goings of the area’s animal inhabitants. As part of the Khwai Private Reserve, proceeds from Little Sable go towards projects helping the local community. Its setting also means that game drives are uncrowded and personal. Guests can enjoy their time at the lodge, relaxing in the spacious lounge, splashing around in the cool swimming pool, or observing the surroundings from the elevated viewing deck.
Best time to go to Botswana
Botswana's climate ranges from arid to semi-arid and is marked by hot and rainy summers, usually between November and March. This ‘green’ season is the best time to spot migrating birds, predators, and baby animals. However, many lodges in the Okavango Delta close during these months, so do check before you book. The dry season, between April and October, is the prime time to spot animals as they frequent water sources. This is also when the Delta floods, making it a great time for water-based activities. These months are a fantastic time to visit the salt pans, which will be dry from about June to September.
