My partner and I flew into Xigera in Oct. and it was magical. Very laid back and our guide, named Onx, was fabulous. He really knew what he was doing and was communicative and informative. Plus the water was low and he still got us where we needed to go. We saw about 35 species of birds up close and personal and Onx knew them all. We selected this camp for birds and we were not disappointed. We also saw crocs and other land animals but the birds were the best. Excellent complement to a land exprience like Leopard Hill. The staff was excellent and i had hurt my foot and could not walk that well and they moved us closer to the dining room and brought food to our rooms when we were too tired to go down to dinner. Food excellent. Would definitely go back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Deep in the Delta, surrounded by crystal-clear channels of water and lush vegetation, Xigera Camp is the quintessential Okavango experience. This blue-green world is home to a number of water-loving Okavango 'specials' including spotted-necked otter, Pel's fishing-owl, wattled crane and the Delta's highest concentration of the elusive sitatunga antelope. Situated on the aptly-named Paradise Island, the almostyear-round water makes this the ideal camp for exploring by motor boat and mokoro (dugout canoe) - an idyllic connection to a bygone era that allows silent and tranquil progress across waterlily-dotted waters. •10 tents (1 family) • mokoro • motorboat • game drives (water dependent) ... more less
