Xigera Camp (pronounced Keejera) is located on a riverine island right in the heart of the Okavango Delta. This part of the Moremi Game Reserve is a true wetland paradise, with Xigera Camp surrounded by deep channels and lush vegetation. Xigera Camp consists of ten luxuriously furnished tented rooms raised on wooden platforms offering superb views of the seasonal Okavango Delta floodplains and the lagoon. The feeling of living in the midst of a riverine forest is one of the features of Xigera Camp. Xigera is known as a “wet” camp as most of the game viewing is from the water, either by boat or mokoro (dugout canoe). Other activities include game viewing by 4×4 safari vehicle or on foot with experienced guides.
Savuti Camp is situated in an isolated part of the Linyanti Concession along the Savute Channel in northern Botswana. This intimate camp’s ensuite accommodation is in seven large walk-in tents that are raised off the ground and face onto the channel. From the camp’s thatched dining area, a plunge pool and large viewing area with fire pit extend outwards on raised wooden decks, providing a wonderful view of the channel and its wildlife. The main feature is the waterhole, which the dining area overlooks and large heads of elephant as well as prides of lion frequent.
