"Xigera review"

3 nights Arrived 9 Oct 2008
"We enjoyed Xigera -- visiting a water camp was interesting, and a good change of pace from our other activities. However, the abundance of game at this camp was much lower than at the other camps we visited, so 3 nights was a bit too much to spend at this particular site -- 2 nights would have been adequate.

At this camp they sold hand-woven baskets made by the camp staff, which were very beautiful, so this was a good place to get souvenirs!

We were hoping to see the sitatunga antelope, but did not see any (apparently they are quite difficult to spot), but we did see an abundance of lechwe, as well as some interesting up-close encounters with buffalo that were in the water near our boat! We also saw several beautiful types of storks, herons, and other water birds.

We visited toward the end of the dry season, and the water levels were getting low -- apparently our group had the last boat ride of the season (around Oct 10); I was glad we were able to do that -- it would have been disappointing to come to a water camp only to find out it was too late in the season for the boat rides!"

"Perfect final Camp"

3 nights Arrived 23 Aug 2008
"Absolutely lovely camp.

Do not go to this camp if you want to see the big 5. Game viewing slightly limited as this a water camp. Very relaxing and an ideal camp to wind down at before exiting the delta." See all these reviews: 9n in Botswana; 2n in Zambia

"The perfect end"

3 nights Arrived 23 Aug 2008
"What a wonderful setting in the Delta. all the staff and in particular our guide KD made sure that we had the ultimate experience at this camp. We were fortunate to see lots of game in particular the hyena's den with mother and cub.

We had a full day trip by boat through the reed beds and hippo pools up to Chief's Island. At lunchtime we landed on a bank to find a wonderful picnic set out for us complete with rugs for a siesta afterwards. A memorable experience. The variety of birdlife in this camp was exceptional. KD's knowledge of flora and fauna was outstanding and he always seemed able to surprise us. As it was my birthday he arranged for a cake and then surprised us with champagne as a sundowner, He even organised a giraffe walking in front of the setting sun - so perfect.

This was the third camp where we had dinner in the Kgotla but the only one where the staff sang and danced for us. We ended our visit to this camp by a morning in the mokoros gliding peacefully through the reeds. We were sad to leave such a friendly and efficiently run oasis."

"Ideal for birding and relaxing water trips"

3 nights Arrived 24 Aug 2007
"After three camps in vaguely similar terrain, Xigera was a wonderful change. We felt we needed something different at this point in our trip. We did all our game/bird viewing from the water.

As was now normal for our trip, the management, staff, food, service, rooms, guiding were all A1. We were in the most distant room again but we enjoyed the walk. A beautifully appointed room. With 10 rooms this was the largest camp we visited and we would not have liked any larger. A good mix of Europeans staying.

A great shop at this camp. We also loved the full-day picnic trip." See all these reviews: 12n in Botswana; 10n in Mozambique; 2n in Zambia
