Over Xugana Island Lodge

De Xugana Island Lodge bestaat uit chalets, die met riet zijn bedekt. Naast een open lounge en een bar, beschikt de lodge ook over een klein zwembad in een mooie tuin midden op het eilandje, een prettige plek om te ontspannen. U kunt onder begeleiding van een ervaren ranger verschillende safari-activiteiten in de omgeving van de lodge ondernemen, zoals tochten per mokoro (traditionele kano) of motorboot. Omdat de lodge zo kleinschalig is worden de maaltijden meestal samen met de andere gasten gebruikt. Na het diner kunt u onder de Afrikaanse sterrenhemel uitkijken op de lagune en nagenieten van de belevenissen van de dag. Tijdens uw verblijf zijn alle maaltijden, twee safari-activiteiten per etmaal en alle lokale drankjes inbegrepen.

De Okavango Delta is een absolute 'must see' tijdens uw reis door Botswana. In de delta leven enorm veel dieren. Okavango vormt zonder twijfel een van de laatste vrijwel ongerepte natuurgebieden ter wereld.

Van het Angolese hoogland stroomt de Okavango-rivier zuidwaarts, via het noorden van Namibië naar de vlakten van Noord-Botswana. Hier loopt het water uit over de Kalahariwoestijn en vormt het de grootste inlandige delta van de wereld: een labyrint van duizenden grote en kleine stromen en kreken, die kleine eilandjes omringen.

De Okavango Delta is 15.000 km² groot en bestaat uit uitgestrekte gebieden met papyrusriet, lage vlakke eilandjes bedekt met bomen, kristalheldere waterwegen en palmen.

"A must see in Africa"

   13-02-2017
We loved this camp it was small and very personal and the views from the boat trips were something to behold! I just remember thinking everytime we drove out into this piece of paradise I wanted to stand up in the boat and yell it was that spectacular!

"Expect the unexpected"

   26-01-2017
We choose this lodge as it offered something different than the standard driving safari, in that, your safari is done by boat and walking. The view of the delta via boat is stunning and fun. The walking safaris are great. We did not expect to see much due to it being the rainy season with high water and grass but we did catch some really good animal sightings and the scenery was spectacular. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the staff were excellent and the food was very good (better than expected given the location). I booked directly with desert & delta. They were highly resposive and answered my many questions and timing issues with great patience. Would efinitely recommend this lodge.

"How to Feel at Home in the Delta"

   03-01-2017
This is the experience you dream about. From the flight in to the boat trips on the Delta and guided walks in the islands, we could not have enjoyed it more. The service is beyond friendly - it is family. Every single member of the staff makes you feel at home. Being out on the water is amazing seeing all the bird life and hippos and, if you are lucky, swimming elephants, but being back in camp is just as wonderful. We had great conversations with the staff learning about their lives. We were also there with great guests, so meals were always full of stories. The camp suggests you only stay two nights as there are a limited number of activities, but we stayed three and didn't regret it. We were able to sleep in one morning and take a later cruise as we were the only guests. Xugana was the once in a lifetime treat we expected.

"Fantastic Okavango Lodge"

   02-01-2017
Having got off the plane at Xugana Airstrip we had to wait for one of the guides as he was at the opposite end of the strip on a tractor keeping the elephants off the runway…. it’s not Heathrow! Situated in a private concession in the Okavango Delta and only accessible by water, Xugana Island Lodge consists of 8 reed and thatch chalets. We were in chalet number 4 which was close to the main area which we were pleased about. As with the other lodges there was no air con, wi fi and air horns in case of emergency. All meals were taken outside on a decked area although there was an inside dining area available if the weather is inclement. There are a variety of game activities available here: road game drive, boat drives, mokoro canoes and walking safaris. The first evening we ask if we can do the Mokoro Canoe trip. I had heard a lot about these traditional dugout canoes and as much as I was looking forward to doing it was dreading how I was going to manage getting in and out as a substantial amount of balance and dexterity is required and I envisaged a soaking! I needn’t have worried as the guides held the canoes still and made sure you were balanced before setting off…. must admit I did sit still though (there were crocs in the water and I didn’t fancy giving them a meal). The whole experience was fantastic and needless to say was finished off with sunset drinks. Yet another early start 0530 and we’re off for a walk. We are taken by boat to Palm Island by our guide Allen and a second guide for security. On arrival Allen proceeded to produce his rifle and load it….it was getting serious. We were given a safety briefing: stay behind the rifle, keep quiet, walk in single file and if we get confronted by a lion to stand our ground and stare it out…. yeah right!!!! Apparently when Allen was younger he was confronted by a lion when he was with his Grandad and they had to do just that…. for 20 minutes before the lion got bored and walked away. The walk was very hard work over uneven ground, in very hot temperatures with the added worry of potential animal encounters (we did have to make a quick retreat when a croc suddenly decided to enter the water when we were walking past in on the river bank and we hadn’t seen in before). It was however fantastic – even having to make several other diversions due to animals, so that we neither got in the eye line or that they got our scent. Getting back to the boat at the end of the walk was also interesting as a mother and baby elephant decided it was a good place to have breakfast. There was nothing to do between brunch and the afternoon activity other than taking a siesta. Initially I heard a lot of screaming and trumpeting – we learned later that an elephant had go in to camp and was being chased out by the guides. A short while later as we were sat on our verandah I heard rustling in the trees next to our chalet….it was 2 large buffalo who were having a bit of a to do and proceeded to crash their way through the bush between our chalet and the neighboring one. It made you realize the importance of having the guides escort you to dinner in the evening and then back, and not to venture out even in an emergency but to use your air horn. That afternoon we took a boat cruise along the very narrow channels of the Delta and had a very close call with a large bull elephant. Another 0530 start. We were asked the evening before what activity we would like to do the following day and although I really loved the walk the previous day I found it too much to do again. We were advised that the walk can be tailored to suit, so we opted to go. At the boat dock we saw that there were 2 other people taking the walk with us this morning – both elderly and French, so it was indeed a more leisurely walk. That evening we took another boat cruise along the channels and again we encountered elephants and also a pod of angry hippos. Last day on safari and we take an early morning (0530) boat cruise to the hippo pool before departing to the airstrip for our onward flight to Maun. Staying in the Okavango Delta is an unique experience and I cant think of a better place to stay than at Xugana Island Lodge.

"Relax and Enjoy the Delta"

   13-12-2016
From a Dreamliner to an Avro and finally a tiny aircraft all within a span of 24 hours. Landing in the middle of no where and then taking a 10-15 minute ride in a boat, led us to the Camp: to an affectionate welcome. The first evening we took the silent mokoro ride with Mr. Robert and were able to watch the elusive red sitatunga and the tiny painted reed frog in their respective natural habitat . Quite a number of birds that nest in the Okvango were also visible. Sundowner in the delta was a special occasion. Next morning with Mr. Ken as guide we did the walking safari of the Palm island: watched deer and elephants from quite close. Evening saw us under the able guidance of Mr. TH, who took us for the vehicle safari and we quite literally landed in the midst of a pride of lion and a herd of buffaloes. That evening we had the unforgettable experience of watching a reedbuck rush past us, being chased by a wild dog. We, with our respective sundowner in hand were standing nonplussed. I am sure the memory of the chase will remain etched in the memory of all those who had witnessed it. The last morning we spent again exploring a few channels of the Delta only to have a narrow channel blocked by the resident hippo – we had to retreat and take another one. We visited this lodge of Desert & Delta during the third week of November, 2016. We spent two nights in this Lodge.The Lodge should be on everyone’s itinerary who wants to see the unique ecosystem of Okavango Delta.
