Over Xakanaxa Camp
Als één van de eerste safari-camps in Botswana, heeft Xakanaxa Camp het originele Afrikaanse bush karakter weten te behouden, maar wel met een uitstekende service en het zal u hier dan ook aan niks ontbreken. Met een eersteklasse locatie aan de oevers van de Khwai-rivier, aan de Xakanaxa lagune, worden hier het hele jaar door safari's aangeboden. Met maar twaalf prachtig ingerichte canvas tenten, voelt u zich echt volledig afgesloten van de buitenwereld. De tenten hebben overigens een badkamer, voorzien van alle nodige faciliteiten. Dat is nog eens luxe kamperen! Per 4-WD voertuig, Mokoro (Botswaanse kano) of motorboot gaat u op zoek naar de wilde dieren die zich in de begroeide wildernis schuil houden. Alle maaltijden, lokale drankjes en safari-activiteiten zijn inbegrepen.

De Okavango Delta is een absolute 'must see' tijdens uw reis door Botswana. In de delta leven enorm veel dieren. Okavango vormt zonder twijfel een van de laatste vrijwel ongerepte natuurgebieden ter wereld.
Van het Angolese hoogland stroomt de Okavango-rivier zuidwaarts, via het noorden van Namibië naar de vlakten van Noord-Botswana. Hier loopt het water uit over de Kalahariwoestijn en vormt het de grootste inlandige delta van de wereld: een labyrint van duizenden grote en kleine stromen en kreken, die kleine eilandjes omringen.
De Okavango Delta is 15.000 km² groot en bestaat uit uitgestrekte gebieden met papyrusriet, lage vlakke eilandjes bedekt met bomen, kristalheldere waterwegen en palmen.
"Xakanaxa Camp. 3 nights"
We were at the camp in dry season. We were welcomed so nicely and quickly introduced to our guide Dennis who took us out on all of our trips. Dennis (and all of the staff) were fantastic - helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Our lodge had an excellent view of the water hole which at night to see large herds of Elephant is magical. A leopard visiting our decking late one veining was something special! All of our trips whether on land or on water Dennis found and showed us lots of animals and talked about the ecosystem and environment. An awesome experience.
Had a fantastic time in the camp, thanks to the staff and guides for making this an unforgettable time. to hear the hippos chewing grass outside the tent at night is just awesome. we had fantastic game drives, the lions, the leopards, the dogs, too many to mention. tents well equipped and comfortable, location magic.
We were there three years ago and I had desperately wanted to go back. It felt almost like going home, the staff is so welcoming. The tents are comfortable, the management perfect, the food good, staff wonderful, and animal viewing superb. There is now communication during the drives between all guides from three different camps and this worked out great for animal viewing. Our guide, Chemical, was excellent and I can only recommend him. We saw so much more than I even hoped for. Cheetah, wild dogs, leopards, lions (although they were very lazy...), buffalo, hippos, elephants, zebra, beautiful birds, etc. etc. etc., and he could explain everything! It's also nice to see some animals roaming the camp by day. We saw bush bucks, monkeys, water monitor, lots of birds. At night there were some hippos and elephants so need the guide to walk to tents. We were very well taken care of, and everything went very smoothly. I loved the 'bush babies' - water bottles on early safari and for bed. Great idea for cold mornings and nights! There was traditional singing/dancing by the staff on 2 of our 3 nights, which just added to the wonderful atmosphere. And they surprised us with a separate candle light dinner for us on our last night there. Thanks, Chemical and Lettie! I think this camp is outstanding. It's one of my favourite places on this earth.
"Highlight of my photographic safari!"
Xakanaxa is heaven on earth. The accommodation were exotic and wonderful. The food was out of this world - I brought home 2 recipes. The staff and the guides were all delightful. The guides had amazing knowledge and we saw every kind of wildlife. Wild dogs, cheetah, leopard, lion, black mombo, buffalo, hippo and, of course, elephant. The Okavango is the most beautiful place. I was there two years ago and thought it was 5 star then but has far surpassed. Evenings around the fire are the best. Thanks to Lettie and all the staff!
"Magical Camp X in the Delta"
The Xakanaxa Camp is situated on a main channel in the Okavango Delta. The tented rooms are roomy, comfortable, well appointed and all with views of the waterways and passing wildlife. The staff were genuine, knowledgable and welcoming throughout. The camp is well managed and organised and you are in no doubt from the moment you arrive that you are in safe hands and you really feel welcome and comfortable. Meals and drinks are magnificent, plentiful and proudly introduced with joyful singing and dancing by the chefs. All meals, drinks and entertainment is included. Our Guide, Dicks, told us many stories and was full of information about the wildlife. Game drives were offered morning and afternoon with the optional afternoon and sunset boat cruise proving to be outstanding. All activities and transfers to and from the camp were well coordinated and planned. We saw many animals and birds - zebras, blue wilderbeast, elephants, waterbuck, roan antelope and impala. There were many lilac breasted rollers, fish eagles, vultures, giraffes, kudu, hippos, crocodiles and many others. Highlights included numerous close-up experiences with lions and a leopard, expertly tracked and located by our guide, Dicks. The drives were comfortable although in August we needed a warm coat with the supplied blankets in the morning. Layering is good as it gets warm by the late morning. Dicks' driving skills are amazing and we have no doubt he could drive the tracks blindfolded. All in all a highlight in a wonderful trip to Botswana.
