It's worth the time and ride to reach it, but once you get there ...
It's "special" in many ways, you 'll never forget it
Far away from everything, lost in the desert. But all you need and want is there

Our second stay in this unique and picturesque place
Very remote, very quiet, very scenic
Comfortable chalets, good food, friendly staff
Interesting morning walk with John, incredible lion and cheetahs' sightings thanks to our skilled local guides, romantic evening under a stunning starry sky
A special thank to Richard and Toby for their dedication, professionalism, and generosity. They truly know how to share their love of this place, and make this second stay even more pleasant than the first one

Lovely lodge a few lions and hyena but that part of the world is about space,stars, big vista's and all the small things that makes the arid dunes of the kalahari. Rooms comfortable, food great. The guides are knowledgeable especially John. All in all a feel good place

My boyfriend and I spent 4 days at Xaus Lodge and loved every minute of it, from the early morning dune walks to getting into bed with hot water bottles at night! We were warmly welcome by Anthony who spent time telling us all about the fascinating background of the lodge and the land before going through our comprehensive itinerary. Our days were a perfect mix of activities and time to relax in the beautiful setting overlooking the dunes and watching animals from the sun deck. The food was fabulous and the staff were friendly and attentive the whole time.

We stayed one night in the lodge, which is located next to a salt pan, which is special plus the stunning sky at nighttime with its stars. Long drive from collecting point to the lodge, which is not indicated by booking information. Hardly any wildlife, except birds and steenboks. we did enjoy the morning walk with a local san.
Despite the manager explained a part of the money is going to the local community its in our eyes overrated. Stuff + hosts are friendly and helpful, food is good. Frankly we were glad booked only one night for this money.
