This is a lovely camp to visit. I felt like I was on a fantasy island, surrounded by lush trees and reeds, all in perfect harmony. In addition, the camp was extremely comfortable with the most gracious and interesting of camp managers. It was a pleasure to be out in little boats during the day and equally as much fun to chat about all sorts of topics with the other guests and managers in the evenings. All in all, I loved the social aspect of this camp the best, out of the 7 Wilderness camps I visited in Aug 2010. The rooms were clean and comfortable with hot water bottles placed in the beds at night due to the coolness of the evenings. This part of the Okavango is just like a dream, please go and visit it.
- 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
