I highly recommend Xudum. My comments mirror what others have already written. By comparison, we stayed at Ulusaba in Sabi Sands two years ago and, while it was perhaps slightly more deluxe, we prefered Xudum and the Okavango Delta. It's more remote, less crowded (fewer game vehicles), and has better game viewing than Sabi. One minor criticism: the food isn't as "amazing" as some suggest. If you're a foodie, you'll find the meals more hearty than gourmet. If you want great food, go to Cape Town and Franschhoek.
