Xakanaxa Camp stands out even more from the rest as it is one of the only safari camps that offers a year round Okavango Delta land and water safari experience.

Think exciting game drives in open Land Rovers and game viewing from the water in mekoro and on powerboats in the Okavango… Look out for big herds of elephant, sable, giraffe, tsessebe, lechwe, wildebeest, impala and waterbuck, as well as lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and hyena.

Once you get around saying the name (pronounced Ka-ka-na-ka) you’ll see its magic, with its prime location on the banks of the Khwai River on the Xakanaxa Lagoon in the heart of the Moremi Game Reserve.

“Big game, big birds, big water” is what this classic-style camp offers. Accommodation is in the form of thirteen Meru-style classic luxury safari tents, including twelve twin bedded tents and one guide/pilot tent, meaning the camp can take up to 24 guests (plus tour leader).

The tents feature en-suite facilities with a shower, hand basin and ablution facilities. Think more glamping than old-school camping!

There is also a covered lounge and bar area under thatched roof and an elevated reeded dining room and viewing deck. Cool off on hot days in the plunge pool at your leisure and huddle around the evening campfire on the deck raised over the permanent flowing river in front of the camp. There’s even a curio shop to browse through.

Enjoy traditional safari fare served with a Pan-African touch served by the fabulous maestros in the kitchen, with fine wines to accompany dinner. Dine in the main dining room or in private if you wish.
