    A very rainy season saw the delta very full and as a result few big animals close by. However the team at Xugana gave us a magic water safari.The accommodation is extremely comfortable and a very well run lodge with great staff.

    If I don't wish to participate in some of the safaris or walks, will it be ok to just stay in the common area during the day? Perhaps I'll change my mind but need to have options. Is it true that the activities are geared toward a 2 night stay?
