Xigera (pronounced Keejera) is one of the Okavango`s best kept secrets. Great scenery and activities combined with the privacy make Xigera a wonderful area.

The camp is situated on `Paradise Island` within the Moremi Wildlife Reserve, close to its western boundary. Xigera is in an area which has permanent water all year round - yet there are lots of large islands in the area which hold good concentrations of animals. It is the perfect land and water activity camp - in fact it is one of the only Okavango camps which offers game drives, foot safaris, mokoros and boating trips. Due to good water levels prevailing, the camp is open all year round. Xigera has been in existence since mid 1980, in one of the most beautiful parts of the Okavango.

The game drives regularly see Lion, Elephant, Lechwe, and even Leopard. The wooden foot bridge, which connects this island to the next, is often used by Lion and Leopard to move between islands. Many a guest has enjoyed Lion viewing from the dining room. Besides all the big game, Xigera has excellent birding. Pels Fishing Owl, Wattled Crane, Slaty Egret, Rufuous Bellied Heron, Swamp Boubou and a host of Eagles, Vultures and Raptors will keep the bird lover out of mischief. The rare Sitatunga antelope are at their highest density in this area. Stalking Sitatunga silently by mokoro is an experience never to be forgotten.

The camp takes a maximum of 16 guests in comfortably furnished tented rooms, with en-suite bathrooms. The rooms are under a shading grove and look through to the river flowing past the camp. Meals are enjoyed in the dining room, which along with the lounge area, are all under canvas. There is no swimming pool - the clean flowing river next to the camp is Xigera`s ``pool``.

Additional Information
Xigera has something for everyone, in an area where there are no other Moremi camps or lodges. The quiet waterways offer perfect mokoro opportunities - complete with good game viewing. To get the best wildlife experience, we suggest you mix your activities and enjoy the drives, the walks, the mokoroing and boating.
