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 water adventure not to be missed"

   27-11-2016
In Botswana, we stayed at 3 safari Lodges – Savute, Xakanaxa and Xugana – owned by Desert & Delta (who have 8 lodges and are part of a larger Botswanan company Chobe Holdings – who also own Safari Air amongst other things). Booking three lodges with Desert & Delta made transit between the camps very straight forward and enable us to get a discount. All Desert & Delta lodges are run on the same operating model, the location, management, staff and facilities provide the differentiation between the Lodges. The final of three lodges visited on this trip, Xugana is situated on an island in the Okavango Delta. The location is remote and spectacular - this is the only lodge where we did not see other tourists. There are only 8 suites making it the smallest and most intimate and private of the lodges/camps we stayed at. The suites are beautifully decorated in African colonial style, the rooms are kept clean and comfortable by the great housekeeping staff. Each day you are welcomed back with artistic messages created on you bed from flowers, leaves and beads. Having started off our Botswana trip at the dry and arid Savute Lodge, the experience here could not have been more different, everything revolves around the water here. The main safari drives are by boat (and even canoes) providing a whole new way of looking at the wild life and surroundings. The diversity of animals and birds is amazing with the bird life and hippos being the highlight. We also went on two land based safaris – one on foot and one in 4-wheel drive (amongst a herd of buffalo). The walking safari was another new and unique experience – rather hot but very enjoyable. As with all the Desert and Delta lodges our guide, Allen, was excellent. His eye for spotting tiny frogs and birds was incredible. The highlight were the two trips (one morning and one evening) to the hippo pool – literally hundreds of hippos, split into families, some friendly and some not so friendly. The quality of the guides at the Desert and Delta lodges is remarkable and is what will attract us back to do another safari with them again in the future. The management and staff at the lodge were fantastic and bent over backwards to make our stay so interesting and pleasant. The main reception and bar area have great views of both sunrise and sunset. The food and service was very good. The only negative was that while the suites were very private, we could smell the cigarette smoke from the suite next door. It is about time resorts of this type banned smoking entirely. We stayed at Xugana for three nights, this felt just right and we would recommend three nights to everyone who visits. Note, this review is one of many from a trip to Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique undertaken in Sep/Oct 2016

"A Little Lacklustre"

   07-11-2016
We visited this camp during August as part of our honeymoon, and having travelled to a few camps in Africa previously, were a little disappointed with the enthusiasm of the staff. They were friendly and helpful, but didn't really go above and beyond, which is something we have always treasured about our trips to Africa. The food was pretty poor, and whilst there is an abundance of birdlife to see, two full days, is probably enough. The accommodation was great, very clean. Delta and Safari were great hosts in terms of the collection and signposting to and from the Airport, but I would say this is probably one of their bottom end camps!

"Great hospitality."

We travelled as a group organized by (Capricorn - Maun, and Wilderness Travels - USA). We had a wonderful experience. Our guides Chili B and T. H. were excellent and Julia and her team did a fantastic job and made us feel at home. Beautiful property, fabulous rooms and excellent service. I had taken photographs of the staff. I want to mail it to them. Could the management provide me with a mailing address? Thank you.

"Staff disappoints"

   16-10-2016
Excellent but not as fun as Moremi. Weak and seemingly disinterested managers reduced the fun factor. Activities seemed more of a "requirement" than a fun time. Everything seemed so regimented and made the day almost exhausting. For example, when we arrived we were told the next day's activity would be a walking tour to view game and whatever. The requirement was for closed toe shoes and long pants which we didn't have nor were we advised to bring them with us. Also we were informed that the walk was fairly long and we weren't sure we could do that. This should be considered as an optional activity with alternatives such as a vehicle game drive or boating drive. The atmosphere too was not as fun as it had been at Moremi or some of the other stops on our trip. Staff seemed lethargic and disinterested in us. Managers would join us for dinner but just sat there and didn't interact. River game drives were interesting but there isn't a lot of game to see from the water other than birds and elephants. No wifi which is a serious negative as we like to stay more connected to our family while travelling.

"Our first safari camp in Africa and we loved it!"

   25-09-2016
We loved our experience here. Our guide Ken took good care of us on both our boating safaris and our bush walk. We felt like kids at every new sight and sound. From a pool full of Hippos with their heads popping up from the water to the mischievous baboons - the reason the doors need pad locks. We were celebrating our 40th anniversary and the staff went out of their way...from celebration messages artfully designed on our bed with coffee beans and flowers to a special meal served on a floating platform at the waters edge. The communal meals were great and the fellow travelers we met and chatted with added to our enjoyment. One of the most amazing shows during our visit to Xugana was the star lit night sky. African does not the light pollution we have in North America so the stars were simply amazing. Our room was right on the water so when we looked out at night the water reflected the stars and it was magically! A big thank you to Manager Fred and his staff for making our visit so great.
