Xudum Okavango Delta Lodge

Exclusive Safari Lodge

Surrounded by a mosaic of papyrus and reed beds, Xudum lies deep within an exclusive 25 000 hectare (62 000 acre) wildlife concession. An interactive kitchen bustles with activity. Guests indulge in a water and wilderness experience, from mokoro excursions to thrilling night game drives and guided daytime walks.

An intimate refuge, Xudum Okavango Delta Lodge is designed with privacy in mind. Sprawled along the banks of a lagoon and guarded by a resident family of hippo, the Lodge flawlessly combines the best of this unique inland delta - the peace and serenity of gliding through waterways lined with lush aquatic plants and the excitement of searching for big game through endless miles of green grassland.

Your room at Xudum Okavango Delta Lodge

Rising high as the treetops, the open upper level of your suite entices you to while away the afternoon in a lofty hide or enjoy a private dinner under the stars. Dark wooden frames cradle another bed in a more conventional bedroom location just down the stairs. Two steps down, a deep, oversized bath offers comfort and warmth, and a choice of indoor and outdoor showers promises refreshment. Curl up in a large, round lounger big enough for two on your private deck and watch the tiny details of life in the Okavango.

Each suite also has a private plunge pool



Children are welcome. Regretfully, children 5 years and younger cannot participate in the regular game drives and mokoro activities. Children 16 years and older can participate in guided walks and mokoro activities.


Tease and tantalise your taste buds watching the chefs at work in the open, interactive kitchen or get involved with tastes and textures yourself! Savour the wholesome flavours of meals served in the dining room, with its sweeping views, or in a warm cluster around a crackling blaze in the open fire pit.
