This Lodge is without doubt the most luxurious and welcoming Lodge in Botswana from cold towel amd welcome drink on arrival and after every game drive, through to menu choices, cold boxes in your room, individual plunge pools and breezy loft hideaways, this Lodge is incredible. The guide and tracker were superb and the business end of Xudum left nothing... More

This was the second half of our Botswana trip with andBeyond. The lodge was wonderful, situated right by a lagoon that you can hear the hippos at night. The rooms themselves were more like huge suites and the plunge pools, whilst a bit chilly, were wonderful to be in watching the nature surrounding you. Again, the andBeyond guides knew their...

Xudum lodge is situated a mere 25 minutes flight from Maun. Upon arrival in the camp you're welcomed by a singing crew, waiting for you with nice cool towels and a cocktail. The layout of the camp is very spacious. There's a massive wooden deck, wchich is devided into a lounge area and a dining area. Opposite the dining area... More

This was our second visit to an andBeyond property this trip, and like Kirkman's Kamp in South Africa, it far exceeded our expectations !! The location is superb and this small piece of paradise in the middle of the Delta has every luxury one could ask for in a high end hotel in the middle of a large city. It... More

Situated in the middle of the magnificent Okavango Delta, Xudum Delta Lodge is accessed by light aircraft and then a 1/2 boat ride on the river (if the water is high enough) or 3/4 hour drive on a rough dirt road from the small dirt airstrip. The lodge is situated on the delta, where an early-morning ride in a mokoro... More

They wake you up in the morning by bringing coffee or tea to your room and gently knocking. Our first morning, they arrived with the tray and said, "I see you've already had your wake up call" as we had two bull elephants in our "backyard" and a baby! What a thrill this trip turned out to be. Lovely accommodations... More

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
