Nxamaseri Island Lodge stands on an island in the Okavango Panhandle, north of the Delta; about 19km north of Sepupa, or over 37km south of Shakawe. There are several camps in the area, but we regard Nxamaseri as by far the best of them. The area is a prime fishing destination and also excellent for bird-watching. It offers a real experience of a deep-water Okavango area. However, as with the rest of the Panhandle, this is not a prime game-viewing area. You may catch glimpses of a sitatunga or the odd lechwe, and you're almost bound to see hippo and crocodile, but other big game is scarce.

Our view of Nxamaseri Lodge

Nxamaseri is a relatively 'offbeat' Okavango Delta lodge, but we enjoyed our most recent stay here. We were well looked after and made to feel very welcome, and found it very interesting to see this 'Panhandle area' of the Okavango. The lodge offers a good standard of accommodation and food. We recommend it to keen fisherman; bird watchers; self-drivers; and those who want to get to Tsodilo Hills with its bushman paintings.

Neither Nxamaseri's creature comforts nor its game densities quite match those of most of the fly-in lodges in the Okavango; however, neither do its prices - which are definitely more affordable.
