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

Real rustic luxury with a fantastic staff. I was traveling with my two kids, 11 and 14, and the staff could not have been more helpful or friendlier. Arriving back to the cabin after a day of game drives and finding a bubblebath and a bottle of sparkling wine all set up was a great touch. The food, the location... More

You get a wonderful welcome when you arrive of the staff singing, In fact they sang every night while we were having dinner and they looked like they enjoyed it so much. Trips great, lovely sundowners on the boat at sunset. Great birds... More
