My wife and I experienced the hospitality of this wonderful camp for 2 nights in mid-September 2012. We had just come for the luxuries of Sabi Sabi in the Kruger the Royal Livingston Hotel at "the Falls" and Savute Safari Lodge (review elsewhere) and approached the tented camp with some degree of trepidation and excitement. We were headed to Xaranna after this sojourn -more on this later.
We were blown away by the welcome, the food, the care and attention of the staff, the flexibility to fit in with our requirements and wishes and the comfort of the whole camp. To call this a mere tented camp is some understatement! The main lodge is beautifully decorated and homely in its comforts. The ensuited "tents" were more than we could have wished for - down to the complementary ice-box with drinks provided at your request.
From the sunset mokoro ride on our first afternoon (finishing with sundowners in the most idyllic of settings) to the last game drive our stay here was fantastic. Our guide and tracker (Bee and TT) were expert in their efforts to show us what the area had to offer. I've seen other reports that were dissappointed in the game on offer - we observed a multitude of elephants, giraffe, impala, Red Lewche, hippos, monkeys, baboons and even a crocodile. A highlight was when Bee tracked a leopard back to its kill and we sat entralled for nearly an hour until it tired of us and climbed a tree with a very full belly for a snooze!
Would I recommend Nxabega - absolutely! Would I return - Absolutely!
