Desert & Delta Refurbishment & Ultimate Family Safari Package News

Each year Desert & Delta Safaris (DDS) closes their camps in February for annual maintenance and general up keep. This year they have extended the closure dates of Camp Xakanaxa & Savute Safari Lodge for some exciting refurbishments.

Camp Xakanaxa has commenced refurbishment to all 11 luxury tents during the existing extended closure and will be reopening on the 01 March 2019.

The refurbishment will include a fresh canvas wrap, some new furnishings and a retouch of existing decor. While the room refurbishment will create significantly more space to the interiors, it will still be aligned with the authentic intimate camp style that Camp Xakanaxa has maintained over the years.

Extensive refurbishments to the main public areas overlooking the channel & waterholes are taking place at Savute Safari Lodge during the extended closure period this January – March 2019.

The concept of the new areas is to make best use of the space in-front of the Savute channel and active waterhole. The new facilities will include a relocation of the swimming pool to a more discreet location facing the channel, new walkways, multiple dining locations and new deck areas with a live cooking area for brunches and dinner.

Guests can look forward to the addition of a family tent, which has two separate bedrooms, two bathrooms, a comfortable lounge and a private deck area. There is also an additional sleeper couch in the second bedroom to cater for families with three children. These changes will alter the total camp size to 11 standard tents and one family tent.

With the addition of a new family room available from the 01 March 2019 at Leroo La Tau & Camp Xakanaxa the Ultimate Family Safari Package is now easier to sell. For all new 2019 bookings guests can now choose from Chobe Game Lodge, Savute Safari Lodge, Camp Moremi, Camp Xakanaxa, Camp Okavango and Leroo La Tau – all with family rooms as well as the amazing value adds of private activities, kids’ safari accessories and special activities just for the family, included in the package.
