Camp Xakanaxa

Camp Xakanaxa

Okavango Delta


Camp Xakanaxa Location Map

One of Botswana's very first safari camps, Camp Xakanaxa (pronounced Ka-ka-na-ka) goes to extraordinary lengths to preserve its original African bush camp character, whilst always providing guests with every comfort. Its prime location on the banks of the Khwai River on the Xakanaxa Lagoon in the heart of the Moremi Game Reserve ensures that it is one of the few safari camps which can provide guests with an authentic, year round Okavango Delta safari land and water game-viewing experience, in open 4x4 safari vehicles or powerboats.

Safari activities are conducted by licensed guides eager to share their in-depth knowledge and impart the treasured secrets of this great wilderness. Morning and afternoon game drives explore the many different ecosystems that the Moremi Game Reserve has to offer. Guided excursions through the deeper channels and lagoons of the Okavango Delta are in hard-bottom aluminum boats equipped with comfortable seats, a foldaway canvas roof and life jackets.

The Moremi Reserve is rated as one of Africa's finest game-viewing areas, and is home to abundant herds of elephant, sable, giraffe, tsessebe, lechwe, wildebeest, impala and waterbuck. Lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and hyena complete the picture. Birding is spectacular, especially during spring and summer when the migrants breed.

The 12 all canvas, en-suite Meru-style classic luxury safari tents are situated on raised decks.

In camp, a relaxed and friendly atmosphere together with personalised and caring service evokes a feeling of coming home. The stylish main buildings extend over the Khwai River and are set on raised platforms to maximise the views over the surrounding lagoons and islands. The elegant lounge and dining rooms, built of local timber, reed and thatch, feature a small library, and there is also an expansive sundeck and pool. In the evenings, the fire-deck is an enchanting environment where guests can relax after dinner.
