Xakanaka Camp

Xakanaxa Camp is situated in a prime location in the famed Moremi Game Reserve. It is set on the banks of the Khwai River on the Xakanaxa Lagoon, and is one of very first safari camps established in Botswana. The main building is open-sided and houses the elegant lounge, library and dining room, leading out to an expansive sundeck, plunge pool and sala with a relaxing day bed, extending over the Khwai River. There is also a campfire deck, under giant Jackalberry trees where the crackling flames are reflected on the Delta waters. Traditional safari cuisine is accompanied by excellent South African wines and generally served around the main dining room table, softly lit by hanging lanterns. The 13 Meru-style canvas tents are set on raised platforms to maximize the views over the surrounding lagoons and islands. These luxury tents have large gauze windows, cooling fans and unique wood carved. The en-suite bathrooms include open-air hand wash basins and showers under partial canvas, hair dryers, fluffy towels and quality amenities. The doors open out to private viewing decks. This intimate family run camp enjoys generator power by day, and at night all the lighting is supplied by battery powered lamps, candles and paraffin lanterns, giving the camp a truly authentic African ambience. Enjoy game drives on open safari vehicles, or glide through the water on Mekoro. There are also motorized boats available for relaxing game viewing and sunset cruises all year round on the permanent flowing river in front of camp.
