This property is well into the bush and requires a small plane to get there. What a beautiful oasis to be based at. Food, service, accommodations, and management were top notch. The animals do come right to your room at night, it's their habitat so escorts after dark are required. Safety is not an issue. I could spend weeks there!!

The prime location of Camp Xakanaxa (pronounced Ka-ka-na-ka) on the banks of the Khwai River on the Xakanaxa Lagoon, in the heart of the Moremi Game Reserve, makes it one of the very few safari camps that offers guests an authentic, year-round Okavango Delta land...

Like all the lodges we have visited in Botswana's Desert and Delta Safaris, the service was outstanding as was the food. We were lucky to have Mod as our guide, who was extremely knowledgable and full of information. (although less of an entertainer than some guides we met.) Letty in management was superb and lovely. We had a problem while... More

Moremi has fabulous grounds (far more attractive than other safari camps that we visited). Rooms are excellent – both spacious and luxurious). Meals are excellent and there was an attractive fire around which guests congregate after dinner. Our guide was good if not charismatic but we did see amazing wildlife including leopard, lion and lots of birds together with more... More
