A Day at Xudum Okavango Delta Lodge
At &Beyond Xudum Okavango Delta Lodge, the days are designed to thrill you with intimate wildlife encounters and the nights to spoil you with the romance of Africa.
Morning Game Drive
As dawn breaks over the African bush, a gentle tap on your door will wake you to the delights of a new day. Your guide will discuss what you hope to see that day over fragrant tea or coffee and morning biscuits or rusks. Explore the floodplains and grasslands of the Delta in search of the Big Five, encountering large herds of elephant and buffalo or elegant sable and roan antelope.
Return to the Lodge for a delicious breakfast, with platters of fruit and cheese followed by a selection of hot breakfast dishes. Choose from eggs, oats, waffles or a number of other options.
If you wish, you can walk off your breakfast on a short walk near the Lodge, accompanied by your guide, who will share his insight into the smaller animals and vegetation in the area. Lunch is served on dramatic decks with panoramic views of the surrounding wilderness.
Cool off with a refreshing dip in the Lodge pool or indulge in an afternoon siesta. Then enjoy a late afternoon tea before you embark on your afternoon adventure.
Afternoon Boat Ride
Depending on the levels of rainfall you can explore the crystal clear channels of the Delta on a mokoro or in a motorised boat. Dozens of bird species, frogs and other intimate details of the Delta lie waiting to be explored at eye level. Alternatively, if Mother Nature hasn’t been particularly accommodating in terms of rainfall you can embark on another game drive to compliment your morning’s search of wildlife.
Return to the camp for a mouthwatering Botswana safari dinner under African skies.
