I only wish I could only describe the incredible beauty of the Okavango Delta you will see as a small boat drives you from the air strip to the lodge through tall golden grasses and papyrus. You travel on water so blue and clear, dotted with hundreds of blooming water lilies opened to the warming sun. The air is clean and delicious and you just know you are entering paradise.
Xugana Island Resort will not disappoint. Our accommodation was both charming and comfortable. We stayed in #2 which was over the water, an added bonus. We found it to be an ideal place to relax, listen to the colorful birds which are in abundance and submerge ourselves in its natural lushness.
Our knowledgeable and most personable guides Johnson, Lasty and Timmy provided us many fun-filled activities such as boating excursions and walking safaris on other islands. The mokoro ride through the peaceful lagoon ( free from crocs and hippos) was the highlight of our stay . Rennie , Hannah and John made sure our our every wish was granted. The meals were both plentiful and delicious and catered to our special requirements. We stayed three nights and loved every moment. We highly recommend this wonderful property with its outstanding staff! Desert/ Delta... you have done it again!
