Not much to add to other reviewers comments. We absolutely loved this place. Apart from the beautiful accommodation, facilities and food, it is the people who make Xigera the magic place that it is. The guides are immensely knowledgeable and passionate about their work and Botswana. They were the most friendly and professional of the 4 lodges we visited in Botswana and South Africa. The lodge staff were efficient and so lovely. Great leadership from Neil.
Special mention to Goms who's knowledge and passion for the wildlife and birds made our stay so very memorable.
Highly highly recommend.
- 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
