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.
The terrace offers an exceptional view of the lagoon of Xakanaxa, and its swimming pool and observation deck animal make Camp Moremi lodge quite exceptional.
It has a small but comprehensive library, dining room, expansive sundeck, plunge pool and sala with day bed as well as a fire-deck set under giant Jackalberry trees. A curio shop and facilities for charging videos, cameras and batteries. The camp operates on generator power but at night all lighting is supplied by gas and paraffin lanterns, giving the camp an authentic African ambience.
Teas, coffees, mineral water and soft drinks as well as a wide range of alcoholic drinks are available to guests throughout the day at no extra cost (there is a Reserve List of drinks that are charged for). A full English breakfast, lunch, high tea and dinner is included in the nightly rate, as are all safari activities and Park entrance fees.
It accommodates only 24 guests in twelve classic safari tents on raised platforms set on the banks of the Khwai River, each with a private viewing deck overlooking the Xakanaxa Lagoon. Each tent is tastefully furnished with twin or double beds and en-suite facilities with shower, hand basin and ablution facilities. A water sprinkler system aids cooling in the midday heat.
