Wildlife at Xigera Camp

Xigera is a true water camp: This is the land of the sitatunga antelope and Pel's fishing-owl. Waterbirds are seen in large numbers including rufous-bellied heron and the secretive white-backed night-heron. Other special birds are greater swamp-warbler, coppery-tailed coucal and Luapula cisticola brown firefinch, swamp boubou, Hartlaub's babbler and western banded snake-eagle. One may be surprised by the presence of lion, leopard, hyaena and buffalo as they wade and swim between islands in search of food.

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. ”
