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.

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.
