A sophisticated lodge overlooking a glimmering lagoon in northeastern Okavango

Sable Alley is a light, bright and beautiful luxury lodge in the game-rich floodplains of Khwai Private Reserve in the Okavango Delta. Each stay at Sable Alley benefits the local communities that have partnered with Khwai, with proceeds from the lodge going straight to Khwai village community projects. Sable Alley sits perched on the banks of a large glimmering lagoon, home to lazy hippos and frequently visited by buffalo and elephants. Guests can enjoy sightings of the lagoon from the veranda at the main lodge or even from their rooms. The reserve offers unforgettable uncrowded safari sightings of animals such as lions, leopards, and wild dogs.

Stay Location


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.
