Just finished two nights at Nxamaseri, and have found paradise. Beautiful en suite tent cabins with private decks look out on the river. Serenaded by birds, heard the hippos call, ate great food at night after a day of fishing and birding. Don't fail to feed the fish eagle! A must do on the upper Okavango. I'm going back.

This small private and remote lodge enjoys some of the most pristine wilderness the delta has to offer. Thanks to our guide Adam who has a lifetime of bush knowledge and also to Tiaan for the relaxed atmosphere and warm reception his team gave us. Tiaan was again of great assistance with my smashed camera lens and offered me his... More

We stayed here for 2 nights having been recommended it by a friend and our agent. We were given instructions to meet by the sign at the side of the road to be transported to the island. The border crossing took a bit longer than expected and the directions through the busy area just inside Botswana were a bit lacking... More

We stayed at this lodge for two nights. There were three couples travelling Africa. We had a great time. All enjoyed the fishing. My wife does not do much fishing even though we live in tropical Cairns but after she caught her first tiger on lures she became addicted. The rooms are getting a little tired but to site outside...

This fantastic small lodge has a lot to offer. Not being either a fisher-person or a birder, I thought that it might just be a place to enjoy the delta while reading books. While there was a lot of that, we also learned a lot about the African bird population, hippos and the geology of the Okavango Delta. The lodge... More

The trip from the tar road to the camp is in itself scenic and interesting. We liked to have a personal guide for the 3 days we spent here. No big animals, but plenty of birds, crocs and fish. Communal dining makes it easy to talk to other guests, however the lodge owner does not live on site, so you... More

Lovely lodge. Great hospitality, service and food. The bird life is fantastic. Very relaxing. Would be even better if it was fully inclusive.

This is a great, simple and away-from-it-all lodge. We were there when the water was still quite high, so most of our trips were by boat. And they were great! Drifting through the reedy channels of the lagoon and through drifts of water lilies. Tried our hand at tiger fishing and also took the long and bumpy ride the sacred... More

If you are a Avid birder, this is the plac 2 be.... We spotted 115 species in just 9 days. We could not do as much walking, cause of the very high water levels. But take the boat with a guide... Adam, Sox or Mr P, they have the most amazing knowledge. You can spot... Lesser Jacana, African Jacana (by... More
