Xaxanaka Camp is one of the older camps in the Oakavango Delta and is situated in the world renowned Moremi Game Reserve. The Moremi Game Reserve is considered to be among Africa’s top game viewing destinations. Wildlife abounds and the setting is rich in spectacular scenery including silent rivers, palm trees, savanna and lagoons. Animals such as elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, lechwe, waterbuck and much more are resident and ensure a truly memorable Africa safari.
Xaxanaka Camp is built with thatch, reeds and wood, all sourced locally. It overlooks the Khwai River and the surrounding lagoons and islands that characterize typical Okavango landscape. The main area has elevated wooden
walkways that accentuate the already beautiful scenery. A small library, swimming pool and sundeck add to the camp’s facilities that can be enjoyed during the day and a round deck that supports the fire place makes for the perfect evening relaxation spot after your safari. Electricity is supplied by battery powered lamps that work all night. The battery bank is charged by means of a generator that runs when the guests are out of camp on safari, to ensure peace & tranquility reign while you are in camp.
