The Xigera Camp (pronounced Keejera) is a luxury tent camp in the Moremi Game Reserve at the heart of the world-famous Okavango Delta.
This fascinating region permanently holds water and therefore offers the ultimate Okavango Delta experience. Palm tree studded islands, winding rivers through lush forests and a multitude of canals and floodplains are what the delta wetland is all about.

egrets, rufous-bellied herons, swamp boubous and a host of eagles, vultures, and other birds of prey can all be spotted with a keen eye.
The rare Sitatunga antelope inhabits the reserve in larger numbers than anywhere else in the region. Tracking the shy animals, gliding soundlessly along the canals in a traditional Mokoro dugout canoe, is an unforgettable experience.
A number of wooden bridges link one island with the next. Not only human guests use these boardwalks but occasionally also lions and leopards. It is entirely possible that guests will admire a lion from the dining room.
Of course, where activities are concerned the focus at the Xigera Camp is on safaris. Depending on the water levels, game drives can be organised. Else, safaris take place along the many rivers, lagoons and canals.
The Xigera Camp is nestled in a shady grove. In total, the camp features only eight finely appointed tents. Each of the units is set on a platform with a wonderful view out over the floodplains and the waterhole, where plenty of wildlife comes to drink, especially in the evenings.
Cherish the spectacular view of the river from the raised lounge, the bar or the restaurant as you enjoy a drink or a delicious meal. Furthermore, a traditional African boma is the setting for wildly romantic culinary experiences under the stars.
Wooden boardwalks, which wind through the trees, join the tents with the main buildings and lend the camp a distinctive tree house atmosphere. The Xigera Camp offers an intense safari experience and a holiday for the soul. On a hot day, the plunge pool promises quick relief from the heat.
