Xugana Island Lodge Reviews
“This is a tremendously well run and comfortable camp – marvelous accommodation, enormous bed and super bathroom. The food was terrific; I don’t know how they conjure up such wonderful salads in the middle of the delta. And the meat courses were excellent of course. Typically, of Botswana, the guides were first class and very informative.” –landscape_10
“The accommodation was stunning felt like we were on a movie set, the food was amazing. Allen our guide was great fun and so knowledgeable, we did 2 walking safaris and lots of boat drives and a ride on a Mokoro so tranquil, wild life over whelming, it was magical and each day another wonderful surprise. It was a very special time, great atmosphere and lots of personal service. Sundowners on the delta just awesome.” –Anne F
“Spent three nights there and were impressed by the friendliness and efficiency of the staff. The food was excellent, so was the ambience around the fireplace in the evening. The staff were very engaging and fun, always ready to talk to you and explain things. Our guides were super. I won’t mention them by name as I could see that this was true for all of them, including the management staff. The outlying rooms were well kept and comfortable.” –Bruce C
