Okavango Mababe Concession
, also known as NG41
, is a private safari area located to the northeast of the Okavango Delta
in northern Botswana
The best part of this area is a large private concession area covering around 1600 square kilometres and containing two small camps.
Although the vast majority of the area is dry mopane woodland and therefore of relatively little interest, it also features the Mababe Marshes, the termination of the Khwai River. During seasons of high flood this small and relatively little-known wetland can attract a great deal of wildlife during Aug/Nov.
The camps here tend to be relatively lower cost and more child-friendly.
The big problems is that this key western side of the concession contains both the main transit road between Maun and Kasane and a considerable village, leading to a somewhat polluted wildlife experience compared with the prime private concession areas further west.
Furthermore in dry years the Khwai River may not flow this far east, in which case the wildlife remains in the public access areas of Moremi National Park to the west.SeasonsAccommodationTrips
