the delta provides a great show for animals, every drive was different we saw it all even mating lions. the staff, guides, trackers and food was just perfect, along with your beautiful safari suite to sleep and relax in you could not ask for a better place to stay

A visit to Xudum is a great experience, mostly due to the excellent staff and beautiful setting. The manager Skipper, our guide Innocence and butler Anty all made for a memorable visit. But we felt that the lodge was tired and in need of a complete refurbishment. Our game viewing was excellent, all thanks to our guide's determination and hard... More

We have traveled to Africa many times for safari's, but never experienced staying in a lodge in the middle of the bush. We flew a small plane into the bush in Botswana to get to the andBeyond Xudum Okavango Delta Lodge. There were only around 7 or 8 lodge houses in the bush built around the lodge for viewing wildlife... More

Hands on management plus wonderful accomodations made Xudum a hit. Unfortunately we arrived during the 2015-2016 drought so there were no water activities and the normally water-covered area viewed from the lodge was just a grassy plain. Still the game viewing was good for late February, the guides were excellent and the staff was friendly and helpful.

We (my girlfriend and I) stayed at Xudum for 5 nights in March. We arrived on a small aircraft from Maun to the new lodge airstrip, where we were greeted by our game ranger and tracker who had set up a drinks and snacks table for us, which was an awesome way to start the holiday and allowed us to...

Very nice lodge and amazing wild life. Elephants just walked next to our room and drunk out of our private pool. Staff was just wonderful and treated us like in heaven. Especially our butler George was so nice. It is really worth staying there.

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...
