Resting on the banks of the Khwai River, within the Xakanaxa Lagoon, prepare to discover the Moremi Game Reserve’s prized camp. Pronounced “Ka-ka-na-ka”, Xakanaxa is ideally placed in the perennial heart of the Okavango Delta, permitting the water safari experience of a lifetime, any time of year.
From the second your feet land on Xakanaxa’s fertile soil, there’s a feeling of arriving home. The smiles, affectionate service and warm atmosphere permeate into every corner of the camp. The main edifice is built on a raised platform, extending into a fire-deck that towers high over the Khwai River for splendid views of the landscape, day or night. Each of the structures have been built with the supplies of the land; reed, thatch and local timber. The extravagant lounge and dining rooms contain a cosy library, sparkling pool, wide deck and sala with day beds.
12 ample canvas Safari Tents meet the needs of up to 24 guests, in traditional old-world furnishings. These Meru-style quarters hold toilets, hand basins and en-suite showers. Each tent has its own secluded viewing deck with comfortable recliners, facing out into the majestic Xakanaxa Lagoon.
