!Xaus Lodge is situated 30 km into the desert, providing luxury accommodation within the South Africa borders of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Pronounced ‘kaus’, this is a place to experience a unique desert environment; stunning scenery, excellent birding and overpowering silence.
Activities at !Xaus Lodge include sunset pan drives and dune walks to watch the sun set over the Kalahari with an early evening game drive back to the lodge. After-dinner night drive, with the accompanying sounds of barking geckos, insect shrills, and larger animal calls to break the silence. A complimentary six to seven hour game drive through the dunes and along the Auob River, with packed breakfast and picnic lunch, is available for guests staying four nights or longer. Walk to our re-created cultural village to visit the Bushman crafters at work. You may join young Bushmen demonstrating their traditional games and purchase traditional crafts hanging from the branches of the tree under which the crafters sit at work. There are only 8 antelope species, but 19 carnivores, including the famous black-maned lion. These lions have adapted to the extreme conditions, and kill a far higher proportion of small game than lions in other parts of Africa. The park has about 300 bird species of which only 82 are resident. Raptors are common, and highly visible in the arid vegetation.
