About Xaro Lodge

Xaro Lodge is a must-visit if you are a birding enthusiast. Species that are spotted regularly include the Pel’s Fishing Owl, Skimmers, Carmines, Egrets, Herons, Kingfisher, and Boubous. At Xaro Lodge ensures that you won’t have to share your viewing space with throngs of other tourists.

Accommodation comprises nine Standard Luxury Meru Tents, each pitched on a leadwood deck beneath huge shady trees and overlooking the Okavango River. Each en-suite tent features a glass door and sleeps two guests. Our newest addition is our Luxury Honeymoon Suite, ideal for a romantic getaway.

Meals are served in the dining room or under the stars, and after-dinner drinks around the camp fire or in the bar are bound to spark memorable conversations, while on hot days the swimming pool offers welcome respite.

The river also boasts 17 species of fish, most notable the tigerfish and bream. Xaro Lodge offers boating cruises that guarantee sightings of hippo, crocs and sitatunga.

          We really enjoyed out stay with Donovan and his team.  Had a stunning 3 course dinner.  Very accommodating with our children.  Beautiful views and a lot of wildlife noises in the evenings. This was def. no. 1 on our list visiting Botswana.  Thanks for making it so special.

          Private and secluded, we thought we were on an isolated island where our wish was the command of the unintrusive staff. Some special birds for long sought "lifers"? No problem, tracked and found as requested. Long since stopped eating tasteless freshwater fish?  The cook's bream dinner resulted in immediate converts. Guided walking trail? Tom spTotted birds, wildlife and even a black mamba from a distance.
