Xakanaxa Camp

One of the most well-rounded camps in the Okavango Delta, Xakanaxa (pronounced Ka-Ka-Na-Ka) is also one its longest established.

One of the most well-rounded camps in the Okavango Delta, Xakanaxa (pronounced Ka-Ka-Na-Ka) is also one its longest established. Set on the Khwai River in a famously game-rich corner of the Moremi Game Reserve, Xakanaxa Camp offers land and water-based activities all year round, and has been designed not just as a child-friendly camp but one that can accommodate wheelchairs too.

There are 12 walk-in East Africa-style tents at camp, each with lovely views over water. Enormous riverside trees provide plenty of shade, and the honking of nearby hippos reminds you that Xakanaxa Lagoon is just a few metres away, home to hippo families and sly-eyed crocodiles.

If you can’t decide between a water camp and a land-based camp for your Okavango Delta experience, then friendly and informal Xakananxa Camp provides the solution: start the day with a thrilling game drive and follow it up with an afternoon boat and canoe trip, returning to a candle-lit camp as the sunset fills the sky with colour.

Lodge Highlights:

  • Water & land-based game viewing
  • Family & wheelchair-friendly camp
  • Prime position in a game-rich enclave
  • Sprinkler-cooled tented suites

About Xakanaxa Camp

Luxury Tents

  • Ceiling Fan & Mist Coolers
  • Private Viewing Deck
  • En Suite Bathroom
  • Recharging Power Points

Overlooking the famous Khwai River, each suite at Xakanaxa is a study in classic tented luxury. An adjoining bathroom ensures comfort and privacy, two qualities reflected in the suite’s wooden deck, affording guests magnificent Okavango Delta views. Guests will also find a wealth of amenities to make their stay extra special: suites come with battery recharging points, gowns and a hair dryer as well as room safe, wet season ponchos and warm liners. But best of all is the tent’s unique cooling system: a conventional ceiling fan is augmented by Xakanaxa’s ‘sprinkler’ system of cooling mist – most welcome in summer!

Lodge Facilities

  • Lounge, Bar, Restaurant
  • Elevated Fire Pit
  • Swimming Pool
  • Wheelchair Access
  • Private Dining Available
  • Curio Shop & Library

One of the best-appointed camps in the area, Xakanaxa Camp is home to one of the biggest swimming pools in the Okavango Delta as well as a popular fire pit and elevated viewing deck. Catch up with news and safari sightings with fellow guests at Xakanaxa’s communal bar and lounge before dinner is served either in the dining area or outside under the stars. Couples can also request a table for two back in the privacy of their suite. An electric fence surrounds the camp to make it more accessible to families with children, and Xakanaxa is one of the few camps to accommodate travellers in wheelchairs.

Activities at Xakanaxa Camp

  • Morning Game Drives
  • Guided Canoe Safaris
  • Afternoon Game Drives
  • Game Viewing by Motor Boat

Xakanaxa Camp’s setting in a famously productive area of the Moremi Game Reserve means the focus is firmly on game viewing. Begin the day with an early morning game drive and go in search of prowling big cats; the afternoon could switch to the water and a boating and canoe adventure on the lagoon’s placid waters. The game viewing is excellent all year round and the region is well known for its lion and leopard populations as well as being a hotspot for the rare wild dog. Elephants and buffalo are often seen in large numbers and the entire area is packed with general game and a huge range of birds.

Excellent service and support for our Africa vacation

Working with Walter was a great experience. He listened to us and helped us build a vacation that exceeded all of our expectations. We really appreciated his professionalism and attention to detail.

Very helpful good suggestions for holiday ideas always available for questions good organising

Excellent service and they supplied good suggestions for our holiday they also organised all internal flights and arranged check in for us so we had no worries while on holiday. Tongazebi was one place we stayed in a tree house amazing and friendly place our safari was in Savanna Lodge an incredible place to stay and amazing safari we got to see the big five and many others birds and animals. All very close you would not believe how close you get to the wildlife. We are so happy that this was organised for as we have had a most memorable holiday staying at wonderful places thanks to Sabrina and Safari on line. Would recommend Safari on line to organise your holiday.

A great tour operator that was a pleasure to deal with.

We used Safari Online to put together a mid-range Botswana trip for a group of four going to three different camps and then onto Vic Falls. We asked several operators to provide options (through this great safari bookings website) and Walter Kohrs from Safari Online was easily the most responsive and quickest to provide different but realistic options and at good prices. In the end it was a no brainer to go with Safari Online. Walter always responded to my queries quickly, with honest and valuable responses that were clear and made sense. From our perspective he tailored a good mix of places for both our budget and standard of facilities that suited us perfectly, with enough information and links to help us make our decisions. In the end each camp was different and had different aspects and strengths that made each unique. We loved it.

They kept us fully informed and updated throughout planning, travel, etc.

It was excellent all around. Everything worked out well. An experience of a lifetime! The game viewing rides were fun and very informative.

Karen (USA)
The trip was sensational and tailored to our needs. Simply fantastic!

The care by Walter was great from planning to leaving Johannesburg. The accommodations were perfectly chosen. If after a few days you thought it could not be better, you were told otherwise. It was an increase every day, with the 3 days safari in the Kruger, including overnight in tree house, the grand finale.
I would book a trip anytime again at Safari Online.

We are six older but experienced travellers who usually do our own planning. Luck led us to Safari Online and Walter. His ideas proved spot on. First to Batonka in Victoria Falls, then the Eco lodge In Savuti and finally Ngoma Safari Lodge. Each was different and special in their own way. The game drives from the lodges were wonderful, each of our guides Ren at Savuti and Kenneth at Ngoma were informative and experienced. If there was game to be found they found it.
Throughout our planning Safari Online have been helpful, always answering emailed questions, no matter how basic, straightaway. We’ve had probably our best ever holiday in years of travel, everything went smoothly. Pickups and transfers were on time. Staff in all the places we stayed were friendly and helpful. I can’t think of one adverse remark except maybe seeing a lion that wasn’t asleep, though I think if it could have been arranged Walter would have done so.

Professional, patient, efficient and responsive. Met all our travel needs and requirements spot on

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional.  Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.

Safari Online were extremely efficient and absolutely charming to work with.

I have a severe intolerance to chemical products such a fabric softener. This can create difficulties when you travel. But the team at Safari Online made sure that all the destinations on our itinerary met our unusual demands. Our 28-day itinerary took us to South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. A magnificent and unforgettable adventure. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently from the flights, transfers, rides, connections, etc. Absolutely wonderful! Can’t thank them enough!

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver. She responded to our requests promptly and gave us several options with links to each option; we ultimately chose Lukimbi. She then coordinated our flights to and from the property, arranged the drivers necessary to get us from the airport to the lodge and back again, and sent the appropriate paperwork to each of us to verify each step of the process. We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!
