Xaranna Okavango Delta Camp Review

In 2009 she was the brash new princess on the block, dazzling the eye with bright pink, sage green, and white canvas décor. Today, however, Xaranna is undisputably the Queen of the Delta, her pointed canvas roofs tethered by poles are now weathered, her soft furnishings have gently blended their colors, and her whole appearance now graciously complements the awesome natural beauty of the surroundings. This is a water-based camp in a permanent channel of the Okavango, so although you'll see game, don't expect it to be readily available especially when the water is high from April to October. Enjoy your water wilderness experience—the beauty of the wide lagoons, the arching papyrus hippo water paths, and the glorious sunsets. Tents are huge with a living room, bedroom, dressing room, and bathroom with both indoor and outdoor showers. During the day, cool off in your personal plunge pool and lie in your decadently comfortable sala (outdoor deck), gazing out at a sweeping lily-studded horizon as water birds criss-cross the sky.
