Xigera - Okavango Delta

Xigera (pronounced Keejera) is a luxury tented safari camp in the Moremi Game Reserve and is situated in the heart of the Okavango Delta - Botswana

Situated in the Moremi Game Reserve, the Xigera reserve is probably at the very centre of the Okavango alluvial fan. This magnificent area epitomises the permanently flooded section of the Okavango. Palm filled hardwood islands, hardwood riverine forests and a multitude of clear water channels and flood plains are what Okavango delta wetland is all about.

Permanent water all year round allows one to enjoy an unparalleled variety of activities including foot safaris, mokoro trips, game drives and powerboat outings in total privacy.

Xigera has something for everyone in an area where there are no other Moremi camps.

Game and Bird Viewing

Lion and Leopard are often seen from the camp crossing the bridge. Lechwe, Sitatunga, Buffalo, Hippo are seen often from mokoro and on walks. Plains game is good and Bushbucks are a feature.

There is an abundance of birds - a special being Pels Fishing Owl. Water birds are seen in numbers. Activities centre around the use of boats and mekoro, but short game drives are available during the drier times and seasonal fluctuations in the water.

One of the great secrets of the Xigera operation is the presence of Okavango born tribesmen as guides
