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``.
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.
