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.
A bold new statement in Botswana’s most unspoilt wilderness, opening in 2020 on the western side of the Moremi Game Reserve in the heart of the Okavango Delta. Xigera is a labour of love, a miraculous and enchanting transformation that will create experiences that are, quite simply, extraordinary.
The Camp – brand new beautiful camp opening soon!
There are only 12 fully air-conditioned suites. Each suite is an exceptional safari experience, offering the finest Southern African artisans and creating a design that is completely in tune with its surroundings. Gorgeous and surprising touches are everywhere, from the lily-inspired spa to the incredible sleep-out beneath the star-filled night sky.
The people define Xigera as this is what you would expect from a Red Carnation creation, with 105 exceptional staff looking after 24 guests, allowing an experience of exclusivity and flexibility.
Opening June 2020…
Activities & Wildlife:
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. Permanent water year-round allows a matchless variety of activities such as mokoro trips, game drives at guests own leisure and motorboat outings. ‘Feet-in-the-water’ sundowners and enjoy private walking safaris with expert guides
In-season catch-and-release fishing and if you a keen photographer you can enjoy photographic safaris and workshops.
Special activities are available for children.
The Okavango Delta fans out over the Kalahari sand system, an ever-changing fragile ecosystem of 15,000 sq km. The area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa. Species include buffalo, crocodiles, hippopotamus, black and white rhinoceros, lions, cheetahs, leopards, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, antelope, lechwe and warthogs. More than 80 fish species can be found in the waterways and there are more than 450 types of bird in the area. Among the most spectacular are the resident Pel’s Fishing-Owl.
