andBeyond Xudum Okavango Delta Lodge is situated on the edge of the permanent Okavango Delta in its own 25 000 hectare (62 000 acre) wildlife concession shared by only 18 guests. It is a water and wilderness experience with the excitement of big game including the continent's largest surviving concentration of elephant and buffalo. Lion prides, cheetah, leopard and African wild dog are encountered, while families of hippo hide in the deeper channels and lagoons. There is also a diverse bird life including the elusive Pel's Fishing Owl.
The camp comprises of 9 split-level safari suites featuring large bathtubs and romantic al fresco showers. Each suite also has a private plunge pool and a lofty rooftop look-out with magnificent Delta views. The guest areas boast dramatic decks with 180° views of the surrounding wilderness yet remain discreetly within the tree line.
Fly into the Pom Pom airstrip, a mere 25 minute flight from Maun (90 minute flight from Kasane), followed by a 10 minute game drive and 40 minute boat ride into camp (depending on water levels).
Game drives, boating, bird watching, mekoro (traditional dugout canoe) trips, and guided walks. Helicopter transfers and flights available at an extra cost. Fishing is permitted between the months of March and December.
Read what our previous clients thought of Xudum Okavango Delta Lodge
The site felt a bit older, but still wonderful. Finally saw good leopard - three in a small area all eyeing each other. You know its good when the guide gets his camera out. Kept being surrounded by elephants at the lodge. once you get a bit more relaxed to seeing an elephant from, say, ten foot away through a fly screen, you start to realise quite what an amazing…
Would give them a 5 except for a lack of any way to communicate between rooms. Maybe walkie talkie's or something - having small children alone by themselves with no communication is a concern considering the amount of animals that roam the camp. Made a big deal about our anniversary which was appreciated.
