Xigera Camp is a water and land paradise situated in the heart of the Okavango Delta within the Moremi Game Reserve. Permanent water in the Xigera Lagoon allows a remarkable variety of activities year round and the camp’s remote location assures a level of privacy and tranquillity rarely found.
Nestled in magnificent riverine forest, Xigera consists of ten luxuriously furnished tented rooms each with en-suite facilities and an outdoor shower. All are raised off the ground on wooden decks, offering a superb view of the seasonal floodplain and waterhole. Meals and evening drinks are enjoyed under the thatch of the raised lounge, bar and dining area overlooking a permanently flowing channel – or under the stars in a traditional African boma.
Activities at Xigera focus on water activities such as guided walks (on request, which require a special guide), motor boating and mokoro trips. They also offer game drives. Wildlife sightings may include red lechwe, antelope, lion, hyena, leopard and sitatunga antelope. Xigera is a delight for birdwatchers, with Pel’s fishing owl, African skimmer, slaty egret, wattled crane, lesser jacana and a host of eagles, vultures, raptors and kingfishers to be spotted.
During periods of low water levels, water activities may be possible but not guaranteed and outings will be mainly focused on game drives.
