Xigera Camp

PLAN MY TRIP

Surrounded by deep channels and lush vegetation on the aptly named Paradise Island, Xigera Camp 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.

This part of the delta has water year-round, allowing a variety of unique activities. While game drives are possible when water levels permit this area is not as solely dependent on that activity as are many African lodges. Instead, the camp offers mokoro rides—a mandatory trip through the channels in a traditional dug-out canoe steered by a long pole, like an African gondola ride. Motor boat trips are also available. Both watercrafts are ideal ways to see the prolific birdlife that lives in these wetlands with regular sightings of Pel’s fishing-owl, African skimmer, slaty egret, wattled crane, and colorful kingfishers. Catch and release fishing lets anglers try out their skills and hook several species of tilapia or even the famed tigerfish.

The main area of camp is also built on raised platforms and houses the lounge, bar, and dining room which overlook the permanently flowing channel. The camp’s refreshing plunge pool is the perfect spot to cool off during a warm afternoon. While the traditional boma firepit invites guests to gather around with an after-dinner drink to relax and swap stories under a clear, starlit sky. The camp also has an unusual newspaper: a sand pit built into the bridge to capture paw prints that is “read” each morning, revealing last night’s unseen visitors.
