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.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
