Home Accommodations Xigera Camp

Xigera Camp

Location
Okavango Delta, Botswana

Xigera (pronounced "Kee-jera") is a luxury tented camp in the Moremi Game Reserve, secluded in one of the most beautiful corners of the Okavango Delta on aptly named Paradise Island. Sheltered beneath mature trees and lush vegetation within a remote sector of the reserve, the camp lies in a permanently flooded region, with palm-studded islands and riverine forests rising from a maze of clear channels and expansive floodplains. Nine raised luxury tents have en suite facilities, an open-air outdoor shower, and superb veranda views of the nearby waterhole and classic delta vistas that surround the camp. Wooden walkways wind through the forest, connecting guest rooms to the communal areas. Guests enjoy meals and evening drinks under thatch in the raised lounge, bar and dining area, which overlooks a permanently flowing channel. A traditional boma, or outdoor dining area, offers a special opportunity to dine on fine cuisine under a starlit African sky. On hot days, the small plunge pool provides welcome refreshment. 

Xigera offers nature encounters for all interests. Permanent water year-round provides an unparalleled variety of activities including foot safaris, mokoro (dugout canoe) trips, powerboat outings, and game drives when water levels permit. A feature unique to Xigera is the wooden footbridge connecting the island to a neighboring island. Guests are often treated to close-up views of lion, hyena or leopard padding under the bridge as they travel between the islands. The camp "newspaper" (a sand pit built into the bridge) is "read" each morning and provides information on unseen nightly visitors to camp.
