Okavango Delta, Botswana
Perched above a delightful lagoon, Xudum Delta Lodge welcomes you with an air of tranquility. It’s a place to indulge and relax, where the safari is about appreciating nature rather than ticking off the big animals.
The remote location is part of the appeal and the lodge is set in a private concession, far away from the main tourist areas of the Okavango. We love the aquatic animals seen from the deck, such as herds of tsessebe, painted reed frogs, and herds of red lechwe splashing about. Don’t come here for the big game, but to be captivated by the subtleties of the wilderness.
Every program is individually tailored and you can enjoy the complete suite of activities on land and water. The activities usually last for less than two hours, giving you plenty of time to savour the delights of the lodge.
Cavernous suites are split over various floors and feature a lower deck with plunge pool, plus an upper outdoor deck for sleeping out under the stars. A personal butler delivers drinks and meals to your room and massages can be arranged. We think that Xudum is a great choice on a multi-stop Okavango or Botswana safari itinerary. It’s the place to relax and recuperate amongst delightful surroundings, at an absolutely stunning lodge.
