      Xigera Camp

      An Island in the Delta Wilderness

      Xigera Camp (pronounced Keejera) is located on a riverine island positioned on the extreme western boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve, in the center of the Okavango Delta alluvial fan. This magnificent area epitomizes the permanently flooded section of the Okavango Delta: with palm-filled hardwood islands, hardwood riverine forests, a multitude of clear water channels and expansive flood plains. Xigera Camp is a classic safari camp consisting of ten luxuriously furnished tented rooms - each with en-suite facilities and an outdoor shower. Raised on wooden platforms and walkways, each tent offers superb views of the seasonal Okavango Delta floodplains and the lagoon. Guests are sometimes treated to close-up views of lion or leopard using the footbridge connecting Xigera Camp's island to the next! Meals and evening drinks are enjoyed in the lounge, pub and dining area overlooking a permanently flowing channel or under the stars in a traditional African boma. For those hot days there is a small plunge pool in which to cool off. Year-round water allows an unparalleled variety of activities such as mokoro trips, game drives and motorboat outings. A mokoro ride is mandatory at Xigera Camp. On this traditional dug-out canoe, the only sounds are the rustling of the wind through the reeds, the lapping of the water against the boat, and the call of the African fish-eagle. The blue of the sky is mirrored in the water, broken only by large round water lily leaves and their stunning purple and white flowers. When water levels permit, game drives are an attraction. During drier years, drives are available throughout the year, but if there has been a very high flood, drives take place only from late September to April. Although Xigera Camp is considered to be a permanent water camp, one may be surprised by the presence of lions, leopards, hyenas and buffalo on the islands. These animals will happily wade and swim between islands in search of food. Xigera Camp is a delight for birdwatchers, with Pel's fishing-owl, African skimmer, slaty egret, wattled crane and a host of raptors, other waterbirds and colorful kingfishers to be seen. One of the great secrets of the Xigera Camp is the presence of Okavango-born tribesmen as guides. Some of these men were born a stone's throw from the present location of the camp and know every turn and tree in this magical wetland.

        Six Countries Summer Special

        Available

        01 Nov 14 - 31 Mar 15

        Ever increasing in popularity, the summer months in Southern Africa (November – March) offer a different safari experience as short showers green the dry grasslands and clean the bright blue skies. Photographers delight in the clear light, spectacular sunrises and sunsets, and rare bird sightings. Because the resident wildlife disperses to many abundant water sources, you may have to work a bit harder to see the animals, but you will have the added benefit of seeing many babies who arrive at this time of year. read more
