&Beyond Savute Under Canvas


Exceptional wildlife

Xaranna is nestled deep in the heart of Botswana’s iconic Okavango Delta with sweeping views opening up onto a seasonal lagoon from its own Delta Island, within an exclusive 90,500-hectare concession.

Light, airy and luxurious, the camp’s nine suites combine canvas, soft drapes and bleached timber, each with a romantic outdoor sala, private plunge pool, indoor bathtub and al fresco shower.

An inviting guest sitting area boasts a spacious reading section – perfect for afternoon relaxation, while the elevated dining area extends onto an open-air boma where candlelit dinners are served beneath the stars. On safari, explore the Delta’s diverse ecosystems by 4x4, on foot, water and air alongside expert guides.

    Game drives

    Game viewing in the Okavango Delta is remote and secluded, with very few vehicles sharing the private concession. Sensitive off-road driving practices allow you to get up close to the area’s exceptional wildlife. Afternoon drives continue after night, allowing for an opportunity to see the many animals that are more active at night, including leopards, serval and lions on the hunt

    Mokoro canoeing

Community & Culture

&Beyond has worked with non-profit community development partner Africa Foundation since the early 90s with a shared vision to care for land, wildlife and people by empowering the communities that are the custodians of these systems.

In Botswana, their work includes working with remote communities in the Okavango Delta, implementing a support programme that has constructed much-needed boreholes, addressing educational needs and allowing access to &Beyond’s private concession where they can harvest grass and reed materials as an added income resource. They also work with a community outside Maun, building a school and kitchens.


80% of Xaranna’s total energy consumption is provided by a solar photovoltaic (PV) hybrid system – the first of its kind in Botswana. This system incorporates a solar photovoltaic (PV) plant and a Tesla Powerpack Battery Energy Storage System (BESS).
