Mango Opinion

A small and exclusive lodge on an island in the permanent waters of the Okavango Delta. This is a great spot for fishing and water activities. Don't miss an opportunity to explore ancient San painting in the nearby Tsodilo Hills.

Nxamaseri Island Lodge is a unique African retreat on an island in the permanent waters of the Okavango Delta. A small exclusive lodge and one of the oldest of the delta, it has six double en-suite chalets, each secluded in an indigenous forest and each with hot and cold running water, mosquito nets, and a private deck overlooking the water. Teak walkways link the rooms to the main areas of the lodge. The Lodge and the rooms have original Botswana artwork and furniture handcrafted by local artisans. 

Take a boat or mokoro trip in the waterways to relax and revitalize your soul. The channels abound with creatures such as hippos, crocodiles, otters, swamp antelope, and hundreds of bird species. Experience the thrill of fishing in the deep waters from boats or along the bank. The Lodge is renowned for spectacular birding, guided nature walks and night boat trips. Another rare opportunity is to visit a San sacred site, the beautiful Tsodilo Hills. Once there, guests are privileged to see and feel, however briefly, the essence of the San culture. Rising out of the flat desert landscape, the sacred hills are one of Botswanas most valued treasures. From the Lodge you will have the opportunity to explore these hills, absorb the intimate nature of this sacred desert place and view some of the 2,000 ancient San paintings that adorn the hills.
