I can not begin to say enough good things about our experience at Xigera. The tents were amazing, food was delicious, guides were exceptional and everything else in between was beyond belief. The day started early and was full of animal encounters and great experiences. The tents were beautifully decorated with plenty of room and beautiful views from everywhere. I...

Xigera Camp located in the heart of the Okavango Delta is the perfect destination for water lovers. While game drives are available, in fact, the drive from the air strip to the boat which takes you to camp is a game drive, water based experiences are at the heart of this camp. Xigera is located on an island and provides...

Xigera is not a top-notch camp at rates making you poor. OK, it's not cheap either - but what you get for the money is a really nice experience. If you've travelled to wilderness-camps before - you know what you get. The team and their spirit is really magic. We were lucky and have been the only guests for our...

This is an amazing camp in the delta. Bird life is excellent. Lodge and staff were amazing, the food is excellent. The highlights for us was the makoro trip which was so peaceful, we had a wonderful sighting of a baby Croc that just sat on a raft of weeds for us to take photos of him. But the magic...

We stayed at several of the Wilderness camps...Xigera Camp was delightful. The location is stunning, the water activities were fascinating, and sometimes felt a little dangerous (hippos under water, oh my). We enjoyed meeting Petunia, the camp hippo. Our room was amazing, the guides and everyone was so kind and generous. Great food and lots of spirits/wine whenever you wanted...

We'd been on safari in Southern Africa previously, but really wanted to experience the true spirit of the Delta, and Xigera and its staff delivered on all fronts.

The Botswana Delta is a world heritage site and with good reason. The bird and wild life is magical. The boat safaris up and down the channels are so amazing. Luxury tents are fabulous and languishing while watching the sunrise was like a dream.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Deep in the Delta, surrounded by crystal-clear channels of water and lush vegetation, Xigera Camp is the quintessential Okavango experience. This blue-green world is home to a number of water-loving Okavango 'specials' including spotted-necked otter, Pel's fishing-owl, wattled crane and the Delta's highest concentration of the elusive sitatunga antelope. Situated on the aptly-named Paradise Island, the almostyear-round water makes this the ideal camp for exploring by motor boat and mokoro (dugout canoe) - an idyllic connection to a bygone era that allows silent and tranquil progress across waterlily-dotted waters. •10 tents (1 family) • mokoro • motorboat • game drives (water dependent) ... more   less
