Set in the heart of the Moremi Game Reserve, which is rated as being one of the finest game viewing areas in Africa, Camp Xakanaxa has one of the best locations in Botswana. Accommodation is in twelve tastefully furnished tents with twin or double beds and en-suite facilities with shower, hand basin and w.c. The tents are situated on the edge of the lagoon and from their private viewing deck, with comfortable loungers, one looks onto the reed fringes at the waters edge. The camp, with its eclectic mix of furnishings from all over Africa, has a dining room, lounge/bar area, fire deck and plunge pool all slightly raised on wooden platforms with spectacular views over the lagoon. The reception area boasts a curio shop. At night the camp looks stunning as it is lit by dozens of paraffin lamps and candles. The game drives in this sector of Moremi take one down winding tracks, through Mopane forests and across lush grasslands. The waterways are either forded by vehicles or crossed on rustic log bridges. The camp faces out over the Xakanaxa Lagoon on the Khwai River, where combined boat and mokoro (dug-out canoe) trips explore the sinuous channels and floodplains of the Delta, one of Africa’s greatest natural wonders. Birding in the area is excellent, especially in the spring and summer months when the migrants are breeding. To the north are the world famous heronries, which attract large numbers of breeding storks and herons.

Staff was warm and friendly. Experienced guides. Abundant wildlife.

Thanks for your query. Mid August is at the end of our winter period and leading towards the start of our spring. Days warm up into the later 20 degree Celsius range, the sun shines and skies are clear. Night time temperatures drop quite extensively and can be expected to be around 10 degrees. Things cool off pretty soon after sunset - but warm up quickly once the sun has risen. Plan for cooler nights and early mornings. Pack to dress in layers - long sleeves a sweater and jacket for the early morning activities. You might even want to take a beanie and light gloves along. Because it is a tented camp, there is no climate control, so it can be chilly at night. It is however not as cold as June and July.
Happy planning and packing - we look forward to welcoming you to Botswana and Camp Xakanaxa.

Layers take lots of layers because u will peel them off as the day progresses. The "bush babies" ( the hot water bottles) are fabulous. You must have gloves scarves, thermal singlet and then jumper and jacket and beanie. You just wear the same thing every day.... not a fashion parade. It gets very cold and the same for afternoon drives. You don't want enjoyment of viewing animals spoiled by your discomfort.Take a backpack that fits all these things with u in the jeep. Have fun.....
