Xigera Camp

Xigera Camp

In the heart of the Okavango Delta, surrounded by deep channels and lush vegetation, is Xigera Camp. In this wetland paradise within the Moremi Game Reserve , the ten luxury tents of Xigera offer splendid views of the surrounding rivers, floodplains, and lagoons. The camp is built on raised wooden platforms, and the resident rooms are connected to the common area by raised walkways. Its location within this riverine forest gives the camp a magical feel.

This part of the delta has water year-round, allowing a variety of unique activities. While game drives are possible when water levels permit (depending on the time of the year), this area is not as solely dependent on that activity as are many African lodges. Instead, the camp offers mokoro rides—a mandatory trip through the channels in a traditional dug-out canoe. This “canoe safari” is at once peaceful and exciting—the water gently lapping against the sides of the boat as you survey the native wildlife.

Obviously these wetlands are a haven for birdwatchers, with regular sightings of Pel's Fishing-Owl, African Skimmer, Slaty Egret, Wattled Crane and a host of raptors, other waterbirds and colorful kingfishers. But the wildlife also includes red lechwe, lion, and spotted hyena.
