Overview

The Moremi Game Reserve, emerging along the Okavango Delta, is characterised by open savannah, immense riverine forests, permanent lagoons, seasonal floodplains, and rivers and channels. With such varied landscape comes varied game. Camp Xakanaxa (pronounced ka-ka-na-ka) provides guests with a prime base from which to explore this intricate mix of wildernesses through year-round safari boating and vehicle game drives. Being a National Park, the area can be busy with game vehicle traffic, but the density of wildlife in this area more than compensates.

A sanctuary to herds of elephant, buffalo, lechwe, giraffe, impala, waterbuck, sable antelope, wildebeest, cheetah, wild dog, hyena, and many, many more, Moremi Game Reserve surrounds Camp Xakanaxa in diverse game. In addition to this extraordinary list of wildlife, guests can expect to spot lions feasting and leopards lazing atop tree branches during their excursions into one of the most vibrant wild territories in Africa. The area offers unique bird-watching opportunities that arise from spring and summer season migrant breeding. Camp Xakanaxa is one of a few camps that provide year-round explorations into this great wilderness in open Land Rovers or powerboats guided by safari experts.

Set into the bank of the permanent flowing Khwai River overlooking the Xakanaxa Lagoon, Camp Xakanaxa’s main lodge provides a stunning panorama view of the stretching waterways in its backyard. Its authentic and natural feel is achieved in its thatched roof lounge and bar area as well as its elevated thatch-roofed and reeded dining room and viewing deck. The lodge is designed to offer the best possible perspective of the surrounding game and wilderness whilst also maintaining a luxurious resting area. This is most evident in its infinity pool and swimming pool. What sets this lodge apart from most other lodges in the area is that it is wheel chair accessible. The lodge’s homeliness is intended.

Thirteen Meru-style classic luxury safari tents serve as the Camp’s guest accommodation. Each tent is raised and features an en-suite bathroom. Unique water sprinkler systems designed to cool off guests during the midday heats are also installed. There are no family units, so children between the ages of 6-11 years are expected to share with their parents. Families with more than one child under the age of 12 must separate so that one parent shares a tent with one child. Only children over the age of 6 years are welcome. An additional cost is required by families with children aged between 6 and 11 as they must book private activities. Camp Xakanaxa accommodates a maximum of 24 guests at any one time, so guests are likely to see more of the game and surrounding landscape than they will of each other.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
