The story of Xigera Camp is one of renewal. Of rebirth and family legacy, and of the pioneering spirit that drives us to seek out Africa’s wild spaces. The same spirit that inspired this remarkable reimagining, perhaps a complete reinvention, of an Okavango Delta safari.
Xigera Camp is one of the very best wet safari camps in the whole of the Okavango Delta. To start with it is just a beautiful camp in a glorious remote location on Chiefs Island. This sense of remoteness is amplified by the journey required to get there. It is only accessible by light aircraft. A short drive in a 4x4 safari vehicle takes you to before a short drive to an awaiting motorboat for a 15-minute cruise along papyrus strewn waterways to the camp.
What we love about this camp is the extremely high levels of service across the board and the enthusiasm of the guides. The food is wonderful, the rooms are simple yet elegant and remain true to being an authentic safari tent camp. We also rather enjoy the amount of wildlife that tends to be in and around camp throughout the day.
What is also appealing is the range of safari activities on offer. In fact, almost the full spectrum of Vehicle, Walking, Mokoro, motor boat, birding and fishing safaris are mainstays of the camp. The walking safari though is more of a nature amble than a serious big game walking safari.
It’s hard to imagine anyone not falling in love with this camp and is the reason we would highly recommend Xigera on any itinerary that incorporates 2 or more locations within the Okavango Delta.
Every aspect is handcrafted to beguile our guests’ senses and stir their souls – from the evocative interiors to one-of-a-kind encounters. A bold statement in the realm of luxury safaris, and an Okavango Delta safari experience like no other.
