Camp Xakanaxa Game Viewing and Wildlife Activities
Camp Xakanaxa is one of the few Botswana lodges that can offer all year round boating trips, as well as extensive 4×4 drives into outstanding game country. Guests will track great herds on extensive safaris by open Land Rover, by powerboat or serene dugout canoe in the company of professional licensed rangers. Nature walks on nearby islands. Our guests are offered two activities of their choice per day, or even an all-day outing can be arranged.
The Moremi Reserve is rated as one of Africa’s finest game-viewing areas, offering sanctuary to abundant herds of elephant, sable, giraffe, tsessebe, lechwe, wildebeest, impala and waterbuck. Lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and hyena complete the picture.
Birding is quite spectacular, especially during spring and summer when the migrants breed. Huge numbers of breeding storks and herons are attracted to the world-famous heronries which lies to the north of the lodge.
