Xobega Island Camp Introduction

This rustic bush camp is designed to thrill travellers who are looking to be in touch with nature. It is an eco-friendly camp with 6 canvas fly-tents containing stretcher beds with mosquito nets, each with open-air, en suite bathrooms (bucket showers and chemical toilets). 

 The island is full of tall, leafy trees, which of course are home to a fantastic array of bird species, and when the marula trees are in fruit, there are a couple of elephants that make their way across the waterways and onto the island to feed between the tents. Daily boat cruises offer sublime Okavango Delta sightseeing and wildlife spotting from the water.

Xobega Island Camp Game Viewing and Activities

 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.
