Location + Surroundings

This property is in the Moremi Game Reserve, in the Xakanaxa region. The property lies under a canopy of ebony trees, which provide a welcome shelter from the hot sun. The nearby Okavango Delta is a source of life for many species - animals as well as plants - so the area overflows with wildlife. The Kalahari Desert is also not very far away, so you will be able to observe the extreme difference in the landscapes of lush waterways and arid desert. Read More
