Perched on the banks of the spectacular Xugana Lagoon in the heart of Botswana’s Okavango Delta is Xugana Island Lodge.
Secluded on a private concession and accommodating a maximum of twelve guests, Xugana Island Lodge provides unmatched privacy. The eight resident chalets are built on raised wooden platforms. These reed and thatch suites come with an en-suite bathroom featuring a double sink, flush toilet, and lagoon-facing shower. For added privacy, each suite also has a private teak deck with magnificent views all accessed by sliding glass doors. Other amenities include fans, bathrobes, tea and coffee facilities, hair dryer, flashlight, and umbrella for the rainy season.
The lodge sits on a wooded island next to Xugana Lagoon, renowned for its breathtaking beauty. As the waters of the Okavango River empty into the thirsty sands of the Kalahari, they create a paradise of lagoons, channels, and lakes that are home to some of the highest concentrations and varieties of wildlife in the world. Elephant, zebra, lion, ample wild dog, hippo and various antelope can all be spotted within the lagoon’s concession. The lagoon also boasts an abundance of bird life from species like the African fish eagle, Pel’s fishing owl, crested crane, and lilac breasted roller.
