A very rainy season saw the delta very full and as a result few big animals close by. However the team at Xugana gave us a magic water safari.The accommodation is extremely comfortable and a very well run lodge with great staff.

Room Tip: Rooms all have water views

Dear Gillian C
Thank you for taking the time to write a review from your recent stay at Xugana Island Lodge. The Delta has been extremely blessed with all the rainfall this year allowing for new and continued life. Our rainfalls are never guaranteed so when it rains it pours as the saying goes. Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to welcoming you back again.
Kind regards
The Desert and Delta Safaris Team

This is the Okavango experience you dream about. Starting with the flight into Delta ,and great boat trip to the lodge, frequent boat trips on the Delta and guided walks in the islands, we could not have enjoyed it more. Julia, T.H., Phat, and the rest of staff makes you feel at home. Cuisine is outstanding, quality that surpassed our expectations ! Being out on the water and seeing all the wildlife from the comfort of your boat it is an incredible experience.

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!

Room Tip: all rooms had spectacular views

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.

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.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good!
