As the custodians of one of Botswana’s very first safari camps the owners of Xakanaxa Camp (pronounced Ka-ka-na-ka) have gone to extraordinary lengths to preserve its original African bush camp character whilst providing guests with every comfort.
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.
Big game, big birds, big water – Xakanaxa Camp is one of the camps in Botswana’s Okavango Delta.
Xakanaxa is located in the heart of the Moremi Game Reserve, rated as
one of Africa’s most beautiful game reserves, about 50 kilometres to the west
of the Khwai Gate and about 140 kilometres to the north of Maun. Situated on
the Xakanaxa Lagoon, Xakanaxa boasts one of the prime locations in all of
Towering riverine forests, open savannah, seasonal floodplains, permanent lagoons, rivers and the intricate channels of the Okavango Delta surround the camp. This makes for a varied habitat that ensures the safari traveller of the very best all year round Okavango Delta land and water experience.
