Xugana Island Lodge

A water paradise on a private island concession within the Okavango, Xugana Island Lodge offers a unique Delta experience in a magnificent setting.

Nestled within a canopy of riverine trees, the natural structure blends unobtrusively into the surrounds. 8 raised reed and thatch lagoon-facing chalets enjoy a traditional colonial-style décor. Chalets are attractive and comfortable and extend out to shaded decks and stunning vistas. Unpretentious central areas provide lovely spaces to relax, whilst appreciating the setting. Enjoy delicious meals in the open air, on wide decks. As the sun goes down over the waters, sip fine wines around a blazing fire. Game experiences include professionally guided mokoro and motorized boat excursions, as well as guided walks.

Added Extras

Xugana Lagoon is widely accepted as being the most spectacular permanent water site in the entire Okavango Delta, which is in the middle of the Kalahari desert.

The Okavango River rises in the highlands of Angola yet never reaches the sea; instead its immense waters empty over the sands of the Kalahari where its great desert thirst is quenched in a wilderness of fresh water lagoons, channels and islands.
