Xugana Lagoon is widely accepted as being the most spectacular permanent water site in the entire Okavango Delta. Providing a lush relief from the arid Kalahari sands, the Okavango River braces the desert with its lagoons, channels and islands.

Along with the impressive game sightings such as lions, leopards and hippos comes a unique list of bird species and a beautiful range of botany. Gaze in awe into the Mopane forests, seasonal floodplains and riverine forests as you lose yourself in this haven. Enjoy the lifeless waters of a raised deck swimming pool as you stare into the endless horizon and sip on sundowner cocktails before approaching the boma area where meals and drinks are served by local staff.
As you flow through the water channels in a traditional Mokoro or a modern motorboat, notice the tiny frogs clinging to the reeds and admire the kingfishers on their flight to their next meal.
