Surrounded by deep channels and lush vegetation on the aptly named Paradise Island, Xigera Safari Lodge provides a luxury experience in the heart of the Okavango Delta.
Accommodations at the camp consist of nine luxury tents raised on wooden platforms. Each tent has an en suite bathroom featuring a romantic outside shower. There are eight twin-bedded rooms each with two three-quarter beds. In addition to which, the camp offers a family tent with two bedrooms each with their own bathroom, but sharing an entrance and linked by an enclosed walkway. All the tents have their own private wooden deck overlooking the lagoon.
Xigera, pronounced “keejera,” is a true water camp. Located on Paradise Island within the world-famous Okavango Delta, a rare inland delta. This wetland paradise lies within a remote corner of the Moremi Game Reserve. For much of the year this splendid area epitomizes the permanently flooded section of the Okavango Delta, with palm-filled islands, riverine forests, a multitude of clear water channels, and expansive floodplains. Rare sitatunga antelope can be seen here as well as lions, leopards, buffalo, and hyenas as they wade through the water and island hop in search of food. Of course, hippos and crocodiles love the waterways.
