Explorations with Wilderness Safaris
Xigera Camp (pronounced Keejera) lies on the aptly named Paradise Island, surrounded by deep channels and lush vegetation within a remote area of the productive Moremi Game Reserve. For much of the year this magnificent area epitomises the permanently flooded section of the Okavango Delta, with palm-filled islands, riverine forests, a multitude of clear water channels and expansive floodplains.
There are nine raised luxury tents with en-suite facilities, an outdoor shower – and superb views of the classic Okavango Delta floodplains that surround the camp. Meals and evening drinks are enjoyed in the lounge, bar and dining area overlooking a permanently flowing channel or under the stars in a traditional African boma. For those hot days there is a small plunge pool in which to cool off.
Spend a morning on a mokoro floating on crystal-clear waters, on the lookout for the life of the Delta, large and small.
Jump into our boat and search for the water-based wildlife further afield.
Get lucky and spot lion or leopard using the footbridge that connects Xigera to the next island.
During the dry season, go on a game drive and catch sight of elephant or lion wading between islands.
Spend time with your knowledgeable guide, learning about the ways of life in the area
Help the staff read the morning “newspaper” – a sandpit built into the bridge to capture paw-prints left at night.
Mokoro or boat to see water-loving red lechwe, spotted-necked otter, elephant and tsessebe and maybe even a Pel’s fishing-owl.
Boat ride to the lagoon and spend the afternoon swimming amongst the waterlilies while sipping on a gin and tonic.
Watch colourful kingfishers and other waterbirds dive the waters in search of food.
