Xigera Camp, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Xigera Camp is a Classic Camp

Things to do at Xigera Camp

Whilst the emphasis at Xigera is on water activities, making this the perfect ‘water camp,’ game drives are offered all year round.


Game Drives

Game drives explore further afield, where wildlife like lion, leopard and hyaena, buffalo and elephant can be seen. Our open Land Rovers each accommodate a maximum of seven guests allowing each guest a ‘window’ outside seat. Please note that there are no night drives at Xigera.


Mokoro Excursions

There is no better way of viewing game and capturing the essence of the Okavango than by traditional mokoro (dugout canoe). The Okavango-born guide and poler will reveal the wiles and secrets of living in the Delta while you spot tiny frogs and colourful waterbirds.


Boating

Water-level dependent, boating is another idyllic form of viewing water-based wildlife. Hippo and crocodile are often seen on these adventures, and sometimes even the elusive sitatunga.


Nature Walks

Short walks are possible around the islands whilst out in the boat or on mokoro excursions. This may be your chance to spot that Pel’s fishing-owl as well as other water-loving wildlife.


Fishing

Fishing with a limited supply of basic equipment is on offer seasonally on a catch-and-release basis. Please note that fishing takes place in waters outside of the Moremi since fishing is not allowed within the Game Reserve.


Birding

Xigera Camp is a birdwatcher’s paradise. Aside from the famous Pel’s fishing-owl, waterbirds large and small, colourful and secretive are seen here, such as African skimmer, slaty egret, wattled crane and much more.
