Sandibe Safari Lodge
Okavango Delta, Botswana
The Safari Spotting of a Lifetime in the Okavango DeltaThe beauty of Sandibe Okavango Lodge is such that I didn't feel worthy to even be there. Pure African luxury from the design of the bungalows to the open-air main lodge where we took our meals and rest times.
The abundance of wildlife in this particular spot in the Okavango Delta is well known and I was not disappointed! With a passionate guide who grew up in the region and a tracker that didn't miss a thing, our little group was treated to an extraordinary experience, a leopard sighting.
Now bear in mind this is a very rare sighting as leopards are super private cats. Some can go on safari for years and never see one!
As we gazed up into the tree, some thirty feet above us, we watched this beautiful predator snooze the hours away as top cat of her domain. A little while later she let out the big yawn, a tell saying 'it is time to wake, time to hunt, time to own this joint'. Stretching once and circling down the tree she silently disappeared into the night.
