Climate and Landscape
The rains have arrived, filling up the dry channel that runs through Xigera Camp – and has led to the arrival of small fish in the water, as well as a young resident crocodile that is now frequently seen swimming up and down the channel.
With the rains we also enjoyed the beauty of nature’s colours emerging, bright and green, with magical African sunsets appreciated from camp and in the open plains every day.
We saw a lot of leopard activity, including mothers with cubs, giving our guests a true Okavango safari experience; they were seen at the airstrip and moving around in camp as well.
All this cat action was amplified by the lion pride, which was seen killing a zebra.
Big herds of buffalo and other general game with many little babies were seen around our area.
Activities that are currently most popular are our unforgettable game drives as well as mesmerising mokoro rides around the shallow channels of our pristine corner of the Delta.
As the rains continue to pour down guests enjoy homemade Belgian hot chocolate around a crackling open fire, filled with warmth and gratitude, and lifelong memories from our time in the Delta – PULA!
