This is one of the most beautiful camps / lodges in the Okavango panhandle region. With access to the main channel for boat trips or fishing, this is a great place to come with the family for adventure or with your partner to relax. The staff are very welcoming and the food is very homely. One of my favourites!

My wife and I made our second visit to Nxamaseri Island Lodge in September 2014, two years after our first visit. As in 2012, we added three full days at Nxamaseri to a 10 day safari, this time in Kenya. We connected from Nairobi with an overnight in Johannesburg before we flew to Maun, Botswana, on South African Airways, where... More

Great place to visit, particularly if you love fishing (in the relevant months) or just to visit other wise. A good birding area too. Tiaan and his team really go out of their way to look after you. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here.

We loved our stay here. Charming host with excellent staff. The food was very good . It is just a beautiful place. The cabins are secluded and surrounded by jungle with monkeys in the trees. At night you could hear hippos grunting in the water nearby. The highlight was tiger fishing and our canoe trip to secret spot . Lots... More

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
