One of Africa’s leaders in responsible luxury adventure tourism with camps and lodges throughout southern and eastern Africa
&Beyond operates four very different camps within Botswana’s Okavango Delta. Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp is a traditional long established Okavango camp, Xudum Okavango Delta Lodge, Xaranna Okavango Delta Camp and Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge are modern lodges offering every luxury in the wild.
There has been considerable growth in &Beyond’s portfolio in Botswana over the past decade with Xudum Okavango Delta Camp and Xaranna Okavango Delta Camp their latest acquisitions. These camps are situated in what was Rann’s Concession (NG 30) and courted a fair amount of media interest for what was then their innovative design. For those looking for a more traditional African experience, Moremi Under Canvas is a more rustic but innovative safari option.
&Beyond prides itself in delighting guests and places a huge emphasis on staff development and training. Combining a warm brand of African hospitality and some of the most highly trained and knowledgeable African safari guides, guests are provided with memorable wilderness experiences to last a lifetime.
&Beyond benefit from a huge portfolio of camps throughout both southern and east Africa and guests will notice the experience they have gained over the past quarter century in everything they do.
