What a fantastic safari camp. Starting with the transfer from the dirt airstrip to the lodge by shallow water motorboat, an entire stay is an adventure. The lodge is impressive from the water arrival, the the staff greeting is genuine. Meals were quite good. Each of the nine spread out units along the water line were luxuriously unique. Each evening... More

I am not a foodie but they have the best food of any place that we stayed, in my opinion. The staff could not be friendlier and the manager, Skipper is very professional and makes sure everything goes off without a hitch. The lodge is not fenced in, so I was confined to my room one morning, due to an... More

We spent 3 nights at Xudum and, unlike most visitors, it was the only place we stayed in the Delta because we were specifically going for water activities. Where to start? The staff. The staff is phenomenal. They are the most welcoming, friendly, funny, and cheerful group we've had in our travels in southern Africa. Xudum truly found amazing people... More

We spent three nights here with part of a tour group, so we had the whole place (there are only nine lodges) booked out. The staff were really good, and the location is fabulous. When we were there the place was in flood, so the lodge was on an island. We arrived from the airstrip by boat and returned by... More

Xudum was amazing! Beautiful setting, fantastic staff and outstanding food. Game viewing was great too. I do know it's more prolific in other parts of Botswana but we lucked out...lion, hippo, elephant, giraffe, hyena, warthog, all types of antelope, wildebeest, etc. In addition we followed a pack of wild dogs for over an hour as they hunted 2 mother Rhones....

From the time we landed, stepped into motor boats and docked at Xudum, I was totally enamored. As with all the andBeyond camps I visited on this trip, the staff is what makes the experience over the top. They do whatever it takes to ensure your experience is everything you dreamed. The accommodations at this camp were absolutely wonderful -... More

Xudum was my introduction to the Okavango Delta and what an introduction it was!! The boat trip to the camp through the Delta was amazing! Elephants, hippo, red lechwe, monitor lizard and so many fabulous birds!! The concession area is smaller than some of the other camps I visited but I saw so many wonderful things: elephant, zebra, giraffe, leopard,... More

We loved our experience at Xudum - the service and friendliness of the staff were wonderful. Our safari experience on the water here was less than the other two camps we stayed at, save a beautiful pride of lions that we got to watch. But the water experience with the boats and mokoros are a peaceful way of exploring the... More
