Xigera Camp is located in a very remote corner of the Moremi Game Reserve, in the heart of the Okavango Delta. Set on an island in an area of permanent flood, Xigera offers the perfect environment from which to explore the idyllic beauty of the Delta.
The area around Xigera offers a combination of permanent channels and seasonal floodplains. One of the highlights of the area is the relatively high concentration of the extremely shy and elusive sitatunga antelope. Silently stalking sitatunga in a mokoro is an experience not soon to be forgotten. The area also teems with red lechwe, and is rich in birdlife, while lion and leopard move between the islands, ambushing prey in the long grass and forests. When the annual flood recedes, herds of buffalo move into the area to take advantage of the lush floodplains.
The Camp consists of ten luxurious and classically styled tented rooms, with en suite facilities and outdoor showers. The tents are raised off the ground on wooden decking, which allows for superb views of the surrounding floodplain. Raised walkways connect the tents with the main lodge, which is set under thatch overlooking the river that flows past the front of camp. These raised wooden decks limit the camp's impact on the natural surroundings, and facilitate the movement of animals through the camp while ensuring guest safety. There is a plunge pool for cooling off during the day.
Depending on water levels, Xigera offers both land and water-based activities. Mokoro rides are a highlight, and provide the most silent and peaceful way of experiencing this miraculous oasis in the heart of the Kalahari Desert. Boat rides allow more expansive exploration of the beauty and ecological diversity of this remote area, while game-drives add further diversity to the Xigera experience .
Xigera is one of only a handful of safari camps that enjoys the privilege of being located on a private concession in an area of permanent Delta in the Moremi Reserve. The combination of its small size and diverse array of activities makes Xigera a very intimate and special water-based camp.
