Xigera Mokoro Trails
After arrival in Maun, you will be met by your guide and fly by light aircraft to the water-filled paradise of the remote Xigera Concession, within the Moremi Game Reserve. Xigera is the ultimate Okavango Delta experience, with serene waters flowing through innumerable channels around remote islands and a profusion of plant, animal and birdlife. There is no better way to experience the Okavango than to travel through it by mokoro by day, and camp out on a vegetated island at night - all essential elements of Xigera Mokoro Trails Camp. The experience is aimed at exposing the permanently flooded inner Delta, in the serene waterways and on the islands of trees and bush. Activities include gliding by mokoro around remote islands, which enable up-close encounters with an excellent diversity of bird life (including Pel's Fishing-Owl), frogs and game, some specially adapted to water, such as the familiar red lechwe.
Khwai Discoverer Camp
Depart by light aircraft for Khwai Discoverer Camp, located in a private concession just north of the Khwai River above the Moremi Game Reserve. The Khwai Concession is one of the most diverse areas in northern Botswana. Its life source is the Khwai River - the northernmost "finger" of the Okavango Delta alluvial fan, which provides vital sustenance to numerous species. Over time, the Khwai area has metamorphosed into a wide range of exciting wildlife habitats - some of the most varied to be found in the entire Okavango Delta: a blend of forests, floodplain, wetland and grasslands. The narrow Khwai Channel is home to large mammals such as hippo and crocodile with buffalo and red lechwe often seen grazing along the fringe. The beautiful gallery riverine woodland found along the river provides further sanctuary to birds, primates and leopard. Elusive roan antelope often come to the river to drink. Activities focus around day and night game drives, nature walks and seasonal mokoro excursions. The mix of acacia and leadwood trees joining mopane woodland, together with the permanent presence of water, attracts large numbers of elephant to the area. Larger predators include lion, wild dog and spotted hyaena, while bird life found here is just as varied thanks to the colourful palette of habitats. Accommodation is in 6.3m x 3.5m walk-in canvas tents (maximum of two guests per tent). The tents are airy and designed to recreate the accommodation style of the early explorers, with richly coloured teak director chairs and minimalist interiors. Separate bedside tables with 12v reading lamps, canvas and wooden wardrobes, bathrobes, comfortable beds and mirrors are provided. Camp amenities (conditioning shampoo, soap, shower gel, and body lotion) are elegantly displayed for use and private, en-suite separate toilet and shower areas are part of the main structure.
