Xugana Island Lodge

Okavango Delta, Botswana

Set deep in the heart of the Okavango Delta on the edge of a lovely lagoon, Xugana is the perfect base for exploring Okavango’s “water” side on excursions by mokoro canoe. Each comfortable reed and thatch chalet faces the lagoon and features en suite facilities and private viewing decks. A beautiful bar and open-air dining area overlook the lagoon—where the sunsets are out of this world—and there is a small plunge pool to cool off in. The lodge is also known for its excellent walking trails.
