DAY 2 – 3: SAGUNI SAFARI LODGE, KHWAI COMMUNITY AREA

Khwai Community Area

The Khwai area of the Okavango lies along the northern boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve. This is an unfenced boundary allowing wildlife to move freely between the woodlands in the wet season when water is plentiful and back to permanent rivers and lagoons in the dry season.

The Khwai area offers the same wildlife experience as the reserve with the added advantage of being a private concession which means the ability to do walking safaris and night drives.

Xugana Lagoon is widely accepted as being the most spectacular permanent water site in the entire Okavango Delta.

Mokoro trips in eco-friendly dugout canoes built to the traditional design, boat safaris to lagoons and islands and wilderness walks give guests the chance to see the Delta wildlife such as sitatunga and lechwe antelope, crocodile and hippo, as well as the other big game that frequents the islands and riverine fringes. Bird-watching opportunities are outstanding, and the bream and tiger fishing can be excellent at certain times of the year. Optional day and night drives are available on the islands surrounding Xugana Island Lodge. The peaceful boat ride back across Xugana Lagoon during the spectacular African sunset provides a lifelong memory.
