Xaranna Okavango Delta Lodge
Xaranna Okavango Delta Lodge, like its sister lodge Xudum, occupies an island within 62,000 acres of private reserve amidst the seasonal and permanent waterways of the Okavango Delta. The idyllic channels, lagoons and floodplains are explored mainly by mokoro (traditional dugout canoe) and by motorboat when water levels permit. The lack of sizeable dry land restricts lengthy game drives, particularly during the annual flood from around March to September, and limits stable wildlife concentrations. With only nine tents, Xaranna focuses on exclusivity, pampering and offering its guests a memorable water and wilderness experience. ***STOP PRESS*** We have been advised that water-based activities have been suspended owing to very low water levels. These activities should resume later in 2016 but contact us for more details.
Our view of Xaranna
We do not recommend that you come to Xaranna Okavango Delta Lodge to search out big game, but instead come to experience the idyllic waterways of the Okavango Delta; for its spectacular birdlife and its smaller creatures such as the pretty painted reed frogs; and for the pampering service and the plush accommodation. Most of our safari-goers agree that a change of pace and scene, cruising along the tranquil waterways of the Delta, is a welcome interlude and highlight to any Botswana game viewing safari.
