Big game, big birds, big water - Xakanaxa Camp is
one of the pioneer safari camps in Botswana's Okavango Delta. Its
prime location on the banks of the Khwai River on the Xakanaxa Lagoon
in the heart of the Moremi Game Reserve ensures that it is one of
the only safari camps which can provide guests with an authentic year
round Okavango Delta land and water safari experience. As the custodians
of one of Botswana's very first safari camps the owners of Xakanaxa
Camp (pronounced Ka-ka-na-ka) have gone to extraordinary lengths to
preserve its original African bush camp character whilst providing
guests with every comfort.

drives in this sector of Moremi, take one through a large variety
of differing vegetation types, down winding tracks, through mopane
forests and across lush grasslands. The waterways are either forded
by vehicle or crossed on rustic log bridges. The camp faces out over
the Xakanaxa Lagoon on the Khwai River, where boat trips lead into
the sinuous channels of the Delta, one of Africa's greatest natural
wonders. Game in the area includes just about everything imaginable
- all of the Moremi game can be seen on the game drives, including
tsessebe, lechwe, wildebeest, impala, waterbuck, elephant, sable and
giraffe. The predators are prevalent and lions are often heard calling
in the early mornings. Leopards, wild dog and hyaena are often sighted.
Birding in the area is excellent, especially in the spring and summer
months, when the migrants are breeding, see the bird checklist. Boat
trips and game drives are conducted by a team of experienced, professional
game guides. The camp consists of luxury, spacious safari tents, with
en-suite facilities. They are fully equipped and tastefully furnished.
