Xobega Island is the seasonal breeding ground of the famous Pel’s fishing owl – a Lifer to many birdwatchers and certainly an Okavango Delta special. This large, brown owl is elusive, staying in thick tree canopies, and remaining elusive. Expert guides know exactly where to look, and will point them out if the owls are present. There are heronries in the riverine trees, and all sorts of birds living in the Delta paradise: pygmy geese, kingfishers, lapwings, jacanas, crakes, storks, warblers, bee-eaters, harriers, eagles, etc.
Early morning boat cruises depart after breakfast and last 3-4 hours, returning to the island in time for a good lunch, hot or cold bucket shower (your choice), and some time out at camp. There are hippos in the wide lagoons and deeper channels, which snort as the boat glides passed, and elephants, buffalo, and lechwe are spotted on the islands. Sunset boat cruises take place in the evenings, and last 1-2 hours, including sundowners.
