Sable Alley

Sable Alley

Okavango Delta
4 stars

Built upon the belief of Greg and Kelly Butler that a safari should revolve around freedom and privacy, Sable Alley offers an intimate experience of this pristine private reserve: The Khwai Private Reserve. At 2000 square kilometres, it is three times the size of the popular Sabi Sands in South Africa and infinitely more private. The diverse landscape of this area means great wildlife and for you, that means exceptional game viewing and sightings.

Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

In the north eastern region of the Okavango Delta, adjacent to the famed Moremi Game Reserve and the Chobe National Park, it makes perfect sense that this private reserve is host to a confluence of game. Lion, leopard, wild dog, buffalo and elephant and don’t forget the hippos, right there in the lagoon in front of the lodge. Take a splash in the pool while the elephants come to do the same (in the lagoon that is) although you’re that close, it’s not unlikely they could join you in the pool. Enjoy a sundowner from the deck as the antelope come for a drink too. Why not? The setting is sublime.

You could easily hang at the lodge all day and watch the animals come and go, but in an area as unspoiled as this, you simply have to take it all in. Quite the feat, we know, when taking into account the size of the reserve, yet even seeing part of it will leave you lost for words. It’s spectacular. From woodlands and riverine forests to open plains and winding channels, the landscape is equally as magical as the game sightings are phenomenal. You could even see up to 50 species on a single drive. We’re not making this up.

The lodge itself offers an African essence beneath the rustic thatch. It’s sophisticated, restrained and elegant in its simplicity. Add the extra comforts to make it homely. Welcome romance with views out onto the bush. This is safari living in style. Your tent (one of only 12) is spacious (55 square metres big), slide the screen doors open to your private veranda and lagoon view. Pinch yourself, this is real.

Sustainable, your stay also contributes directly to the Khwai Village Community. As if you needed another reason to pick Sable Alley for your Okavango Delta experience. Everything about this place is special and you’ll me made to feel that way as a guest too.
