Xigera Mokoro Trails Camp

Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana

There is no better way to experience the Okavango than to travel through it by mokoro, walking and camping out on a vegetated island - all essential elements of the Xigera Mokoro Trails experience. Xigera Mokoro Trails Camp is aimed at exposing the permanently flooded inner Delta, in the serene waterways flowing through innumerable channels around remote islands and a profusion of plant and animal birdlife.

Our guest tents are lighter here than the rest of the safari, with a gauze main frame, thus enhancing the views. Due to its remote location on an island, equipment is aimed at necessary comforts with disco stretcher-styled beds.

Activities include mokoro and walking safaris on inner remote islands, which enable up-close encounters with an excellent diversity of birdlife (including Pels Fishing Owl), frogs and a myriad of game species, some specially adapted to water, such as the rare sitatunga and the familiar red lechwe. Walking activities vary in length and duration through the seasons, especially in the months when the Okavango is at peak flood (June, July and August) where they become shorter as more islands become flooded.
