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 awe-inspiring oasis. Xugana Island Lodge is situated on a private concession and takes full advantage of this magnificent site. This is a charming little Okavango camp, with plenty of character with a traditional, slightly rustic, but very comfortable style.
Xugana Island Lodge accommodates just 16 guests in large raised reed and thatch lagoon facing chalets, with en-suite facilities and private viewing decks situated on the shaded fringe of the island. There is a strong sense of being a world away from everyday life here- it is a haven of peace and tranquillity- apart from the honking hippos!
An open boma and al fresco dining area overlooks the expanse of pristine water that makes up the permanent Delta. The lounge, bar and dining areas are set back under an Ebony and African Mangosteen tree canopy in open sided thatched structures, and the swimming pool, located within the mature gardens in the centre of the island, Xugana Island Lodge is a perfect place to relax.
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 Okavango Delta safari. For stays of 3 nights or more game drives on the neighbouring Shinde concession can be arranged.
Bird-watching opportunities at Xugana Island Lodge are outstanding, and fishing for bream and tiger fish is also offered as an activity at the lodge.
