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.
Bana Ba Metsi School
Xigera Camp supports the Bana Ba Metsi School in Shakawe which takes in problem or delinquent school drop-outs and encourages them to go back to school to get an education and thus a better chance in life.
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.
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.
