Boasting one of the finest locations in the Moremi, Xakanaxa Camp (pronounced Ka-ka-na-ka) lies on a pretty stretch of the reed fringed banks of the Khwai River, in the beating heart of the Okavango. This is prime game viewing area. Set on one of the few permanent channels of the Okavango, this is one of the few camps able to offer boating year round- as well as superb game viewing on 4x4 game drives.
Xakanaxa Camp is a stylish but authentic camp with a homely atmosphere, it is an old favourite for many who return time and again to this special camp. The main buildings extend over the Khwai River on raised platforms to maximize the views over the surrounding lagoons and islands, there are plenty of comfortable areas and nooks to relax and soak up the beautiful surroundings. Constructed of local timber, reed and thatch Xakanaxa Camp comprises of an elegant lounge containing a small but comprehensive library, dining room, expansive sundeck, plunge pool and sala with day bed as well as a fire-deck set under giant Jackal berry trees.
The 12 rooms are true to the authentic safari experience being all canvas- though very comfortable with all the comforts you could wish- and each features a private deck with loungers and ensuite bathroom. The new family room is ideal for families, offering plenty of space to spread out and a lovey deck to while away the siesta hours.
The reception lounge boasts a curio shop. The camp operates on generator power but at night all lighting is supplied by battery powered lamps, candles and paraffin lanterns, giving the camp an authentic African ambience.
Camp Xakanaxa has a genuinely friendly atmosphere with a strong sense of the traditional safari camps of old- it is an authentic camp with a real sense of place. No wonder it is a favourite for many. The service is warm and welcoming, in a style for which Africa is so famous.
