One of Africa’s leaders in responsible luxury adventure tourism, &Beyond have camps and lodges throughout southern and eastern Africa. This is a premier operator known for the high level of accommodation, guiding, service and attention to detail. The food and wine experience is particularly noteworthy.
&Beyond operates three camps in the Okavango Delta. The original and more traditional Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp, the chic and upmarket Xaranna Okavango Delta Camp and their flagship premier property Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge, which stands out for its unique design and luxurious accommodation.
Originating in South Africa, there has been considerable growth in &Beyond’s Africa portfolio which has expanded to include lodges in Botswana, Namibia, Tanzania, Kenya and Mozambique. The collection is diverse, including a full spectrum of
accommodation from mobile camps to lavish luxury lodges, though all are upmarket.
For those looking for a more traditional African experience, Chobe Under Canvas and Savute Under Canvas are more rustic but innovative safari option. These are mobile camps and while guests do not move with the camp the style and experience is that of a classic mobile camp, perfect for the more adventurous travellers.
&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 has a total of 29 lodges in its global portfolio, which also reaches to Asia and South America and guests will notice the experience they have gained over the past quarter century in everything they do.
The company was born in 1991 in Phinda Game Reserve, South Africa and grown steadily since then maintaining a loyal following. The logo takes its inspiration of the bateleur eagle. ‘Bateleur’ means acrobat in French, named because of the movement the eagles make as they rock from side to side in eh sky, mimicking the balancing act of a tight-rope walker. It is this balancing act which captures the spirit of the company which aims to keep a healthy balance of caring for the land, wildlife and people.
&Beyond run a number of responsible tourism and conservation programmes including the Rhinos without Borders project which see the relocation of rhinos from heavily poached South Africa to Botswana. This is run in conjunction with Great Plains. Launched in 2014, by 2019 87 rhinos have been relocated.
