Xugana Island Lodge
Luxury Safari Lodge
Xugana Island Lodge is situated on a private concession and takes full advantage of this magnificent site. An open boma and al fresco dining area overlooks the expanse of pristine water that makes up the permanent Delta.
The Xugana Lagoon is widely accepted as being the most spectacular permanent water site in the entire Okavango Delta, which in the midst of the Kalahari sands, is Africa's largest and most aweinspiring oasis. The Okavango River, rises in the highlands of Angola and never reaches the sea; instead its immense waters empty over the sands of the Kalahari. Here the great desert thirst is quenched in a wilderness of fresh water lagoons, channels and islands.
Exploring the Delta by motorboat or canoe (mokoro), combined with walking on surrounding islands in the concession, gives guests the chance to experience a classic Delta safari. Bird-watching opportunities are outstanding, and fishing for bream and tiger fish is also offered as an activity at the lodge.
The swimming pool, located within the mature gardens in the center of the island, is a perfect place to relax.
