Camp Xakanaxa Introduction

Big game, big birds, big water – Camp Xakanaxa is one of the pioneer safari camps in Botswana’s Okavango Delta. Its prime location on the banks of the Khwai River on the Xakanaxa Lagoon in the heart of the Moremi Game Reserve ensures that it is one of the only safari camps which can provide guests with an authentic year round Okavango Delta land and water safari experience. As the custodians of one of Botswana’s very first safari camps the owners of Camp Xakanaxa (pronounced Ka-ka-na-ka) have gone to extraordinary lengths to preserve its original African bush camp character whilst providing guests with every comfort.
