Kabbo is a San Bushman word which loosely translated means to dream or in a sense, a reflection of a story - a story like the wind, a story which comes from a far off place... It is also the name chosen for our Luxury Houseboat, which operates in the panhandle area of the Okavango Delta, Northern Botswana. This area is recognized as being amongst the quietest and most peaceful in the Delta, due to its remoteness. Indeed, there are only a handful of permanent camps and boats operating in this wilderness area - which makes it ideal for our discerning guests.
Kabbo can be categorized more as a floating lodge than a houseboat. She consists of two decks - the lower deck has eight en-suite cabins with sliding glass doors opening on to the pristine wilderness that is the Okavango Delta. This design offers our guests unrivaled views of the crystal clear waterways, abundant bird life, and the seas of papyrus. The Upper Deck is approximately three meters above the waterline, where the dining area, bar and sundecks is situated. This design offers views that are simply breathtaking when having a sundowner, the privacy and convenience of cabins that are en-suite, and ample space for our guests to have some time to themselves.
Kabbo has tender boats which assist in the activities offered. The activities available include fishing, bird-watching, boat safaris and visits to Tsodilo Hills. The latter is a World Heritage Site with possibly the richest concentration of San Rock Paintings in the world.
Access to Kabbo is from Maun, either by road transfer to Shakawe (approximately 3 hours) or by light aircraft (approximately 1 hour). Transfers from Livingstone and Kasane via the Caprivi Strip can also be arranged. All meals are inclusive, as are tea, coffee and drinking water and one water-based activity per day. Wine is served with dinner.
We have spared no expense or effort in fulfilling Wilderness Dawnings vision of offering an experience that is truly unrivaled and unique in every way.
