4Cs Projects at Xigera Camp

As well as being involved in conservation, Xigera Camp makes sure to donate funds and time to communities and centres.


Solar Power

In 2011 the generators at Xigera were turned off and the power for the entire camp was switched across to a new photovoltaic solar plant consisting of a total of 135 solar panels producing a maximum of 30kW or renewable energy – enough power from the sun to run the entire camp including all fridges and freezers.

Keeping the Environment Clean

Waste water in the form of sewage and grey water (e.g. shower water) is treated in an Above Ground Sewage Plant or STP. This treats the water with a dense system of bacteria in a network of tanks above the ground, being sterilised with UV or chlorine, before being allowed to enter the environment. This ensures that we do not contaminate the natural water system in the area.

Xigera and Maun Council Centre

Xigera Camp donates the time of certain camp staff and funding to the Maun Council Centre which is an AIDS counselling centre.

Motswe Wa Tsholofelo Orphan Day Care Centre

Xigera donates a portion of each bednight charge to the Motswe Wa Tsholofelo Orphan Day Care Centre in Maun which provides education and food to orphans living with extended family members.

A Quote From Our Guests

“ From the deck of our tent, we had a view across permanent water to islands, which were the homes of red lechwe, elephants, slaty egrets, wattled cranes, and fish eagles. ”
