UNESCO unveils 1000th world heritage site

July 23, 2014 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee has officially named Botswana’s breathtaking Okavango Delta its 1000th World Heritage Site. A natural wonder, the Okavango Delta is a maze of sparkling lagoons, meandering channels and overgrown islands teeming with wildlife. Known as “the river that never finds the sea”, it lies like a glittering jewel at the heart of the Kalahari Desert.


&Beyond boasts four exquisite lodges in the Okavango Delta where guests can explore this magnificent World Heritage Site by mokoro (dugout canoe), on foot, on game drive or by helicopter. The landscape is nothing short of miraculous, the game experience truly unique and the sunsets to die for. You haven’t fully experienced Africa until you have spent time in the Delta.

&Beyond Sandibe is currently being entirely rebuilt to receive a brand new look. &Beyond Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge will, without a doubt, be the most architecturally unique and unparalleled lodge the Okavango Delta has ever seen.

We have pushed the architectural boundaries to ensure that &Beyond Sandibe will be the leader in terms of its cutting-edge design and light sustainable footprint. The weaver bird’s charming nest-building habits and the elusive pangolin’s body armour of scales have been the inspiration for the new building structure, using organic materials such as wood for the major structural design.
