We booked the stay with TRAVEL WILD and HELIKOPTER HORIZONS.
We can only recommend the very good service and guidence by both agencies.
We booked lacally and direct with above agencies.
The price was less than half what we have been offered, trying to book from Europe.
The Heli flight was great and well worth the little extra cost, flying over the Okavango at 150 to 200 m altitude is unforgetable, the pilot would not hesitate to make a turn and even fly lower, whenever we spotted wild life and wild life was there in great numbers!
The camp was excellent , friendly and professinal staff. Accomodation was perfect in clean well equiped spacious tents. Twice a day we were offered game drives or boat tours, and again we had the chance to see lots of wild life.
We stayed early April daytime temp 25 to 30° night time a pleasant 17 to 18°
Good food and nice dinners with free drinks.
The evenings by the wood fire were attended by the guides and really fantastic.
Whenever we can we will return.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
