Xigera Camp

< Back

One of the unique features of Xigera Camp is a footbridge close to the camp that lions and leopards use as a crossing point as they travel between the islands in the Moremi Game Reserve and the Okavango Delta.

Xigera Camp (pronounced Kee-je-ra) is located on Paradise Island, in Botswana’s Moremi Game Reserve, adjoining the Okavango Delta. Xigera Camp can accommodate 16 guests in comfortable tents with en suite bathrooms. Xigera Camp’s tents are built on elevated decks and face an Okavango Delta river that flows by the Xigera Camp. This Okavango Delta river with its clean waters is Xigera Camp’s natural “swimming pool”. Meals and drinks at Xigera Camp are served in a thatched building with good views of the footbridge that lions and leopards use to go across neighbouring islands of the Okavango Delta. Many Xigera Camp guests have seen these predators make the crossing from the dining area.

Summer game drives at Xigera Camp offer great viewing opportunities of large game animals and birdlife. Fishing owls and wattled cranes, egrets and eagles abound in this region of the Okavango Delta surrounding Xigera Camp. Going for quiet mokoro (dugout canoes) trips into the Okavango Delta are rewarding excursions, with opportunities of sighting the rare Sitatunga antelopes. Xigera Camp also offers walking safaris into the Okavango Delta with experienced safari guides.
