    Experience the freedom and exhilaration of the Okavango Delta at andBeyond Xudum Okavango Delta Lodge, with its unique rooftop hideouts in each of nine private safari suites. Overlooking a sparkling lagoon, the earthy glamour of this striking Lodge provides the perfect counterpoint to the natural bounty of this riverside landscape. A strong but playful recycled theme provides unusual accents at every turn.

    An intimate refuge, andBeyond 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.

    cenic Helicopter Flight

    Thrill to an aerial view of the Okavango Delta as you soar above a vast maze of both permanent and fleeting waterways and floodplains that occupy an otherwise sandy corner of Botswana in a helicopter. Fly over rivers and pools dotted with lily pads, as well as a variety of wild animals that inhabit this unique habitat.

    okoro

    The Delta is probably best known for its Mokoro rides. These are boating trips through the maze like channels and shallow lagoons of the Delta. They are conducted in traditional boats which are called Mokoros. These sturdy boats used to be hand crafted out of large Delta trees. Today most of the boats used in the Delta are fiber glass replicas, to prevent the cutting down and depletion of the Delta’s magnificent trees.

    Mokoros are a great way to go game viewing. As they are not motorized, they allow you to glide silently through the channels. This allows you to approach the wildlife silently and you will see more, as they are not scared off by a motor. You will see many animals that feed on the grass and reeds on the palm islands such as lechwe, sitatunga, elephant, hippo and crocodile.

    Try your hand at catching the fierce tiger fish, or Tilapia in the Okavango Delta. Not all water based camps in the Okavango allow fishing, but some camps do allow fishing on a catch and release basis. Most of the fishing however takes place in the Panhandle region where the Okavango River enters the Delta. Deeper into the Delta, fishing is offered seasonally.
