Xugana Island Lodge is situated on a private concession within the world-renowned Okavango Delta. The Okavango Delta braids across 15 000 km² of Botswana’s Kalahari Desert, providing an oasis to an abundance of wildlife. In the permanent delta, the myriad of sparkling waterways coil amongst the reed and papyrus beds and open unexpectedly onto tranquil lagoons that are fringed by wooded islands.

Highlights

  • Situated in the heart of the Okavango Delta
  • Private thatch chalets with en-suite facilities and private viewing decks
  • Superb water- and land-based game-viewing opportunities

You should know

  • Children from 6 years and older are welcome at the lodge

The detail

Xugana Lagoon is recognized as being the most spectacular permanent water camp in the Okavango Delta. The lodge, on a wooded island in the Xugana Lagoon, nestles beneath the shade of old wild ebony and African mangosteen trees facing and overlooks the lagoon. This exclusive reed and thatch structure blends seemingly with the surrounding landscape. Xugana prides itself on offering exceptional service, comfortable accommodation, and sumptuous cuisine.

The lodge boasts eight reed and thatch Lagoon-Facing Chalets that are raised on wooden platforms to afford spectacular views of the lagoon. All of the chalets feature twin beds, an en-suite bathroom with double vanities and shower, overhead fan, in-room safe, tea and coffee making facilities, umbrella, flashlight, air horn, hairdryer, and private deck.  

The lodge facilities include a lounge, bar, various indoor and outdoor dining areas, swimming pool and viewing deck.

Xugana focusses on water-based activities that explore the delta. Tranquil mokoro trips provide a soothing way of viewing the multitude of water birds and pods of grunting hippos up-close. Motorboat safaris to lagoons and nearby islands offer exceptional game and bird viewing opportunities, and wilderness walks afford the opportunity to learn about the wonders of the swamp and the smaller creatures that live there. Xugana also offers catch and release fishing experiences where guests can try their hand at catching bream and tiger fish.

Xugana Island Lodge borders the Moremi Game Reserve, which has diverse habitats supporting a wide variety of animals. As well as possible sightings of wild dog, leopard and cheetah, other resident species include lion, elephant, buffalo, hippo, giraffe, hyena, zebra, kudu, red lechwe, sable and roan antelope.

Bird-watching is excellent throughout the year with species such as reed cormorant, African darter, eastern white pelican, African spoonbill, goliath heron, egrets, glossy ibis, sacred ibis, storks, geese and ducks only but a few to be spotted in the area.

Xugana Island Lodge is ideal for solo explorers, couples and families looking for a tranquil yet rewarding safari experience in the delta.

Great great service!
It’s my 1st time going to Africa and I didn’t even know where to start. Thanks to Safari.com (Jayson and Catherin), I simply have not had to worry about anything. Their service and help has gone beyond any travel agent I’ve ever experienced. Any doubt I have, they were responsive, quick and efficient. And always so so nice.

Great service from Jayson at Safari.com
Jayson and his team have worked hard to help us put together a safari package that would hit all the points on our wish list. After weeks of work, when we came with some changes to the itinerary, he worked it in and added time in a location we hadn't considered, but we think is worth the time. They provided lot's of useful information and respond quickly to our frequent questions. Though we will not be taking our trip for a few weeks yet, we are excited and looking forward to having a once in a lifetime experience!

Dorothy was absolutely amazing my dates…
Dorothy was absolutely amazing my dates on my Safari change a couple of times and she was more than accommodating making everything work for me with no stress. The resort she picked for me is absolutely amazing and I cannot wait to stay there. I’m also staying 3 nights in Cape Town and she took care of my hotel and of all my connecting flights . Was a big relief and spoke to her on the phone a couple of times. Very sweet highly recommend if you want a stress free vacation

Fast, Friendly, and Reliable Service
My travel advisor Mel was amazing. She was timely in her response, non judgemental about my budget, ans very helpful in figuring out potential safaris to fit my desires. She was super friendly and knowledgeable, and never once made me feel like I was out of my league.
