We really enjoyed our 2 night stay here. An extra night would have been good to do a trip to the Tsoldilo hills. Lovely chalets with excellent shower room overlooking the bush. The food was excellent and the lodge very well managed with friendly staff. In our 2 nights we did a boat trip, a mokoro ride and an island walk. Botswana has had a very bad drought so at the moment access isn't by boat. Would recommend this lodge as a restful place to have a few days at the end of a safari.

Fly in an 8-seat (largest that can land) onto a landing strip, be met by a bushman guide named Fish, who takes you to a boat so you can ride to this marvellous lodge surrounded by lush grasses and water. Glide amongst papyrus and bullrushes, viewing hippos, crocodiles ranging from 4" to 18', and amazing birds. Enjoy good food, comfortable room and engaging young couple. Idyllic certainly summarizes this 9 befroom lodge. Each room is accessed by an elevated walkway, protecting you form the wildlife. Comfortable bed, clean and well-maintained amenities. Our guide, Fish, was brilliant. And excellent access to the Tsodilo Hills, wher ancient paintings of the San people are located. One caveat: be sure to check the wine and beer prices and keep track of consumption. NOTE: I MISTAKENLY PUT THE ADDRESS AS NXAI PAN. IT IS NOT, IT IS ON THE OKAVANGO RIVER and Trip Advisor wouldn't let me change it.

Nxamaseri Lodge is secluded, small, quiet, but very friendly. the staff and managers seemed like a close family. The lodge was nicely sited and furnished, with interesting local art and all amenities. Food was homely but delicious and plentiful. We had a wonderful guide, Mr P, who found a huge range of birds for us as well as beautiful scenery on the river channels at our door and visits to rock art at Tsodillo Hills and a Bushman village. We stayed 3 nights, a minimum given time needed to get there and can highly recommend this as an introduction to the Okavango area. All lodges in Botswana are expensive but this was reasonable given our experience

This was a lovely lodge in the northern part of the Okavango delta, accessible by road and boat - ie, didn’t have to go to Maun and fly in. The managers were v friendly and the accommodation exceptionally comfortable. Our guide (Fish) was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We had a great two days here and would recommend it to others.

This Place and it’s people have stolen my heart. I can’t wait to get back there. Two nights is not enough.From the fabulous hospitality to the Mokoro ride, the best home made bread ever to the fishing, the Hippos and Monkeys it’s amazing
