XUDUM DELTA LODGE
Xudum Delta Lodge is a luxury lodge set in a private wilderness concession of 25 000 hectares to the southeast of the Moremi Game Reserve in the centre of one of the most unique regions in the world, the Okavango Delta. Renowned for its lush waterways and abundant wildlife, the Okavango is home to a number of aquatic and land species, including the large African predators.
Surrounded by a mosaic of papyrus and reed beds, Xudum Delta Lodge lies deep within an exclusive wildlife concession. Nine playfully crafted split-level safari suites feature large bathtubs and romantic al fresco showers. Each suite also has a private plunge pool and a lofty rooftop look-out with magnificent Delta views. An interactive kitchen bustles with activity. Guests can indulge in a water and wilderness experience, from mokoro excursions to thrilling night game drives and guided daytime walks.
Dramatic decks in the guest area offer sweeping views of the resident herd of hippos cavorting in a permanent lagoon. Here one can take refuge from the sheer scope of Botswana's open spaces in the intimate design of the guest areas, with massive sofas promising instant relaxation.
Xudum Delta Lodge is also known for its bush dining and delicious new take on an interactive food experience. In the evening, guests can enjoy an exciting game drive before returning to a private dinner laid out on your open air roof top, with the soft glow of lanterns and the unassuming presence of your attentive butler on call for all your needs. Drift off to sleep securely nestled under your mosquito net listening to the evening chorus of the wetland frogs and the distant sounds of the bush night.
The Okavango Delta includes a wide variety of ecosystems; channels, lagoons, shallow wetlands, riverine forests, floodplains, open grassland, woodland, shrubland and palm savannah. The twice-daily game drives, bush walks or boat excursion, all guided by highly-skilled guides, allow you explore each of these ecosystems and their unique plant and animal life. Night drives provide an enticing glimpse into the nocturnal life on the Delta.
Xudum Delta Lodge is easily accessible by air, with a private air strip only a 20 minute flight from Maun, followed by a brief game drive to reach your final destination.
