Location
Situated in a private concession on the western edge of the Moremi Game Reserve, all but camouflaged amongst towering ancient trees, the solar-powered Xigera Camp sits across two riverine islands surrounded by the glistening channels of the Okavango.

Accommodation
Rising on stilts from the rich soils of the Delta, each of the twelve spectacular air-conditioned suites are meticulously designed with privacy in mind. Refined luxury meets authentic design in the palatial suites, all of which are decorated using the finest materials, including timber, bronze and hand-carved wood, and adorned with carefully curated art from across Africa.

Wake up to panoramic views of the shimmering sunlit Delta, before freshening up in your spacious bathroom featuring an indoor and outdoor shower, as well as a freestanding bathtub (perfect for reclining in after exploring).

After a thrilling day on safari, delight in an interactive culinary experience in the open kitchen-dining room, unwind in the welcoming bar with a glass of the finest vintage and share stories around the boma (traditional campfire) under a sky gleaming with stars.
When you’re not out exploring, take time to recuperate by making use of the extensive spa programme, finding time for a workout in the state-of-the-art gym or enjoying a dip in the serene swimming pool overlooking the Delta.

If you’re a foodie, you’ll rejoice at Xigera’s ‘anything, any time’ philosophy, which allows you to curate your dream dining experience. Whether you’re hankering for a mouth-watering breakfast in the bush, craving a sumptuous sunset feast on the deck or want to take a walk on the wild side with a picnic on the plains, the camp’s chefs are always happy to oblige!

Go Exclusive In Botswana
The best way to give your family the facilities it seeks may be to book out an entire camp or lodge. Perhaps you are planning a multi-generation safari. Or you may want to fulfil a dream of walking, mokoroing and camping out in the Okavango. You may simply crave an extra degree of privacy. Most lodges we use take fewer than 16 guests, some take only eight, so booking a whole lodge is a viable option.
