As a first stop Xanaxa is fine. The staff are friendly and helpful, rooms are OK (though a ceiling fan rather then an electric fan would be nice) and there is a sort of nice relaxed atmosphere, an open self serve bar and pretty good food. So why average ? Because a lot depends on your guide and ours was... More

Our Camp Xakanaxa experience was at the end of 2 weeks in SA and Botswana. So when we arrived we had already seen 'everything' most people want to see, so from this fortunate position we could totally relax into Camp Xakanaxa. My highlight was being woken at 2.30 by an adult elephant snacking on the waterside vegetation no more than... More

I stayed at the camp for 3 nights in March. The camp itself is very comfortable and the staff are excellent. My guide "Chemical" was walking Wikipedia ;-) The main activity here are game drives in the reserve and boat rides in the delta.

My wife and I stayed in Xakanaxa Camp for three nights in February this year. We have previously stayed in the camp 4 times during the last 5 years. Twice in big groups of 14 and 18 persons. Despite that we are big repeat customers, we received close to no special treatment, warm welcome on arrival and so forth. Xakanaxa... More

We had a phenomenal stay at Camp Xakanaxa, our first-ever safari. The tent-style "rooms" were a really interesting experience. It was a strange cross between roughing it and being five-star pampered all at the same time. You're in a place that is completely off the grid, so the electricity is a bit unreliable, there's no air-conditioning, you rely on mosquito... More

We spent 3 wonderful nights at Camp Xakanaxa. It is in a beautiful setting and offers lots to see. The staff was amazing. We did see a leapard along with elephants, impala, hippos, wild dogs, warthogs, lots of birds.

The Xakanaxa camp is excellent! They have very confortable accomodation, and very good staff. The employees of the camp are all the time smiling and taking care of us. Special thanks to our guide Gee. Hope to come back again just to see the leophard! (the only animal left in our safaris).

We went out on their makoro's for a short trip around the delta. Our guides were brilliant, explained all about the wildlife, helped us take pictures standing on the read beds and made it a generally enjoyable trip. We also had a short ride on the motorboat and although that was fun, I would highly recommend the Makoro over the... More

We traveled from Chobe to Moremi via Kasane. Took a small airplane to get to Moremi air strip for the Camp Xakanaxa. I was very scared for the first few mins of our flight. Very exciting at the same time!! We stayed at this camp for 2 nights. What a lovely camp!! We were given a tent towards the end... More
