Xugana Lagoon is widely recognised as the most spectacular permanent water site in the entire Okavango Delta, which itself is Africa’s largest and most awe-inspiring oasis. The Okavango River rises in the highlands of Angola yet never reaches the sea; instead its immense waters empty over the sands of the Kalahari, where the great thirst of the desert is quenched in a wilderness of freshwater lagoons, channels and islands.
Xugana Island Lodge is situated on a private concession and takes full advantage of this magnificent site. An expansive deck and al fresco dining area overlooks the vast, pristine body of water that makes up the permanent Okavango Delta.
The lounge, bar and dining areas are set back under the Ebony and African Mangosteen tree canopy in open-sided thatched structures, and the swimming pool, located within the mature gardens in the centre of the island, is a perfect place to relax.
Xugana Island Lodge borders the Moremi Wildlife Reserve and offers a diverse habitat that includes an incredible variety of animals, with possible sightings of wild dog, cheetah and leopard. Guests can expect to see lion, elephant, buffalo, hippo, giraffe, hyena, zebra, kudu, red lechwe, sable and roan antelope and many more. Bird watching is excellent year round. The lagoons are home to bream, catfish and the fighting tiger-fish and the Xugana Lagoon offers magnificent African sunsets. Activities focus on offering guests a water experience and professional and knowledgeable guides will accompany guests on all game activities.
