Sable Alley is a complete rebuild of a favourite old bush camp. Overlooking a lagoon that’s connected to the River Khwai, just a stone’s throw from the world-famous Moremi Game Reserve, this enviable location means the game literally comes to us. From the camp’s swimming pool, lounge and outdoor seating area we have an uninterrupted view of 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. The massive Khwai Private Reserve is comprised of some of the most fantastically diverse habitats in northern Botswana, including riverine woodlands, open floodplains, and mopane woodland. This range of habitats means a range of wildlife, including rhino, wild dog and of course the eponymous sable. Game viewing will not just be from traditional safari vehicles. At Sable Alley we also offer mokoro safaris —enjoy being gently ‘’poled’’ along the water in a traditional canoe—a wonderful way to do some bird watching or simply relax.
Back at camp, your home in the bush is one of our comfortable and stylish tents. Elevated on decks to give you a view of the lagoon, the tents have en suite bathrooms, private verandahs and private, indoor & outdoor showers where you can wash off the dust of each truly memorable day. End a day of exhilarating game viewing with a night drive where you will encounter nocturnal creatures such as spikey porcupines and fearless honey badgers.
