Safari Lifestyles View

Sable Alley Camp opened in 2017 and offers perhaps another exciting opportunity to visit this impressive game area.

The camp is positioned overlooking a lovely lagoon often frequented by animals. We think the strength of this camp comes from its relative location to Moremi and the prodigious Khwai area….

Its benefit is that it is in a private concession and away from the public areas.

Wildlife

The magnificent area boasts of unparalleled wilderness with highlights of big herds of buffalo in the dry season and close encounters of unique wildlife species such as aardvark. Large herds of elephants can be viewed at the rivers and waterholes, and thousands of zebra concentrate in the winter before heading south.

Other wildlife seen includes lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, giraffe, eland, sable, hippo, hyena, aardvark and various other nocturnal species. The endless vistas of the Linyanti marsh makes an incredible playing field for the avid bird watcher combined with breath taking views of a scenery carved by defiant forces of nature. Water birds, including pelican, are common.

The Camp

Camp Overview

Situated on the banks of a peaceful lagoon this tented camp embraces the vision of The Khwai Private Wildlife Reserve, a footprint sensitive and community based joint venture partnership. The Khwai village (and its residents) is administered by this trust.

Sable Alley is a complete rebuild of a favourite old bush camp. Overlooking a lagoon that’s connected to the Khwai and Sable Alley rivers, just a stone’s throw from the world-famous Moremi Game Reserve, this is an enviable location. From the swimming pool, lounge, outdoor seating areas and all the guest’s tents there are uninterrupted views of the resident pod of around 30 hippos and the large herds of plains game, elephant and buffalo coming to drink – an idyllic way to spend an afternoon, especially with a cold gin and tonic in hand. When you are ready to explore further afield, Sable Alley’s expert guides are on hand to interpret the sights, smells, and sounds of the bush.

Lodge Layout

The newly refurbished main area boasts a lounge, bar, fire pit and swimming pool – all with views of the lagoon ahead.

Room Description

Spacious and stylish tents. Elevated onto raised decks, each of the camp’s twelve luxurious tents has an uninterrupted view of the lagoon, with en suite bathrooms, private verandahs and private, indoor & outdoor showers where you can wash off the dust of each truly memorable day.

Two of these are comfortable family units with two comfortable interconnected tents

Camp Environment

The massive 440,000 acre Khwai Private Reserve comprises some of the most fantastically diverse habitats in northern Botswana, including riverine woodlands, open floodplains, rivers and mopane woodland. This range of habitats means a range of wildlife, including lion, leopard, wild dog, elephant, buffalo and of course the eponymous sable antelope. Game viewing will not just be from traditional safari vehicles (both during the day and at night).

At Sable Alley they also offer mokoro safaris —enjoy being gently ‘’poled’’ along the water in a traditional canoe—a wonderful way to do some bird watching and game viewing. Boating is a highlight when water levels are high
