Located in the heart of Moremi Game Reserve which lies within the Okavango Delta in northern Botswana, is one of the original authentic bush camps, Camp Xakanaxa. Its idyllic location on the banks of the Khwai River overlooking the Xakanaxa Lagoon ensures it is one of the few camps to provide guests with a year round land and water game viewing experience. Set on raised wooden platforms under the shade of towering trees, Camp Xakanaxa's thatched dining room, lounge and bar area, curio shop, fire deck and plunge pool provide a restful sanctuary with magnificent lagoon views. Activities offered at Camp Xakanaxa include game drives in open 4 x 4 vehicles and powerboat exploration experience. Prices include all meals and drinks, activities and laundry service. NOTE: Moremi Game Reserve is a national park, hence no off road driving, walking, fishing or night drives are permitted.
The 12 all canvas, Meru style classic safari tents are raised on decks blending in harmoniously with nature. The tents are spacious and tastefully furnished with twin or double beds and en-suite showers, hand basin and toilet facilities. There are fans, toiletries, plug points, hairdryers, gowns and ponchos. Situated on the fringes of the lagoon each tent has a private viewing deck with comfortable loungers.
The ancient riverine forests, open savannah, serpentine channels and seasonal floodplains that surround the camp make for a varied habitat of exceptional fauna and flora. The camp is one of few offering a year-round land and water game-viewing experience, in open 4x4 safari vehicles or powerboats. The diverse habitat ensures prolific sightings of Elephant, Buffalo, Hyena, Giraffe, Hippo, Wildebeest, Kudu, Lechwe, Lion and Leopard, among many others. Birding is spectacular, especially in the spring and summer months when the migrants are breeding. Safari activities are conducted by licensed guides eager to share their in-depth knowledge and impart the treasured secrets of this great wilderness.
