A few miles outside of Shakawe, in north-western Botswana, on the tranquil banks of the Okavango River, you will discover Xaro Lodge, a 24-bed Luxury Meru-Tented Lodge. Nestling amongst giant Mangosteen trees and accessible only by boat, the lodge is home to a myriad of birds. The distinctive cry of the African Fish Eagle, White Backed Night Heron, and the illusive Pel’s Fishing Owl make this tropical paradise a must for bird lovers.
This area is a great way to experience the cultural side of Botswana, most notably the Tsodilo Hills, also known as the “Mountain of Gods”. Steeped in cultural offerings and experience Tsodilo brings you closer to the history of Botswana from thousands of years ago. Xaro Lodge offers two different room types. The camp can accommodate 20 PAX. 10 units in total comprising: 1x Luxury Honeymoon Suite and 9x Standard Luxury Meru Tents, of which one can be used as a Family Unit.
All rooms are raised on wooden decks, each with an en-suite private bathroom, private balcony, and all rooms have equal river viewing opportunities. At Xaro Lodge our food-focus is on being as self-sustainable as possible. With the means to satisfy every palate, our well-trained chefs source the freshest produce daily. Salads, home-style cooked meals, and freshly baked bread, chutneys, and jams are our signature. The restaurant offers you a communal dining experience, allowing you to dine with your group, your family or to make new friends and interact with other guests. Private dining is by appointment only and made prior to your arrival at Xaro Lodge.
You can expect to be seated in an area of the natural bush under the Botswana sky! A selection of South African wines are on offer to compliment your meal and a full bar facility is available to suit your taste. Xaro Lodge is 100% self-sufficient with a state-of-the-art solar system, which is part of our green initiative.
Reservation is mandatory. Please note that you cannot drive to Xaro Lodge directly. At booking confirmation, the directions to our reception with lockable garages and 24hr security will be shared with the guests; from there the guests will be transferred via boat to Xaro Lodge.
