Xigera Camp

 

Location:

Xigera Camp (pronounced Keejera) is part of the Moremi Game Reserve and is a true wetland paradise. The camp is surrounded by deep channels and lush vegetation in a magnificent riverine forest, floodplains and discreet islands. Xigera Camp epitomises the tranquil Okavango Delta experience.

The Camp:

Xigera Camp feels like a place apart, a blue-green bubble in which birds sing and baboons bark, people laugh and glide by on mokoros. Each tent looks out over water that idles dreamily past, undisturbed by the rest of the world.

Xigera Camp consists of nine 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. The feeling of living deep in a riverine forest is one of the features of Xigera Camp.

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.

Guests are sometimes treated to close-up views of lion or leopard using the footbridge connecting Xigera Camp’s island to the camp “newspaper” (a sand pit built into the bridge to capture paw prints), which is “read” each morning and provides information on unseen nightly visitors to camp.

Activities & Wildlife:

Permanent water year-round allows a matchless variety of activities such as mokoro trips, game drives and motorboat outings. Xigera Camp is the only camp in the area – ensuring total privacy.

A mokoro ride is the experience 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.

Xigera Camp is a delight for birdwatchers, with Pel’s Fishing-Owl, African Skimmer, Slaty Egret, Wattled Crane and a host of raptors, other water-birds and colourful kingfishers to be seen. An abundance of wildlife includes red lechwe, lion, and spotted hyena. Fishing on the Delta will invigorate the essence of freedom and give fishermen the challenge of a lifetime.
