Xudum Delta Lodge

Revel in the seclusion of this truly remote lodge

Xudum Okavango Delta Lodge is set in a private wilderness concession of 25 000 hectares to the southeast of the Moremi Wildlife Reserve in the centre of one of the most unique regions in the world, the Okavango Delta.

Xudum is located on the channels and lagoons of the southern, seasonal part of the Delta. Surrounded by a mosaic of papyrus and reed beds, Xudum lies deep within an exclusive 25 000 hectare (62 000 acre) wildlife concession. Nine playfully crafted split-level safari suites feature 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. An interactive kitchen bustles with activity. Guests indulge in a water and wilderness experience, from mokoro excursions to thrilling night game drives and guided daytime walks.

Xudum has lofty rooftop lookouts and fully sized plunge pools at every room. An intimate refuge, Xudum Okavango Delta Lodge is designed with privacy in mind. Sprawled along the banks of a lagoon and guarded by a resident family of hippo, the Lodge flawlessly combines the best of this unique inland delta – the peace and serenity of gliding through waterways lined with lush aquatic plants and the excitement of searching for big game through endless miles of green grassland.

Rising high as the treetops, the open upper level of your suite entices you to while away the afternoon in a lofty hide or enjoy a private dinner under the stars. Dark wooden frames cradle another bed in a more conventional bedroom location just down the stairs. Two steps down, a deep, oversized bath offers comfort and warmth, and a choice of indoor and outdoor showers promises refreshment. Curl up in a large, round lounger big enough for two on your private deck and watch the tiny details of life in the Okavango.

Indulge in a playful moment or two on a big tractor tyre swing in the shade of the trees or gaze out over the lagoon from the quiet comfort of the massive couches in the warm guest area. Tease and tantalise your taste buds watching the chefs at work in our open, interactive kitchen or get involved with tastes and textures yourself! Savour the wholesome flavours of meals served in the dining room, with its sweeping views, or in a warm cluster around a crackling blaze in the open fire pit.
