Xigera’s exceptional location on the fringes of the Moremi Game Reserve delivers some of the best birding Botswana has to offer, with more than 500 species recorded.
Elephants are arguably the stars of the show. Northern Botswana is home to the world’s largest population of Loxodonta Africana, and at last count more than 130 000 wild elephant still roamed free here.
On mokoro and motorboat excursions look out for the area’s smaller inhabitants, like the tiny mottled frogs that cling to delicate papyrus reeds. Stealthy crocodiles and large pods of hippo shy away from attention in the deeper channels and lagoons, while healthy populations of endangered rhinoceros find safe refuge on the secluded islands of the Okavango.
The lush grasslands and verdant islands also support large herds of antelope, including kudu, wildebeest and the semi-aquatic red lechwe. On your safari excursions from Xigera, look forward to sightings of lion, cheetah and, if you’re lucky, the elusive leopard. Packs of endangered African wild dog are found here too, as are the ever-resourceful spotted hyena.
The Okavango Delta is nothing short of a wilderness wonderland, delivering both unforgettable landscapes and once-in-a-lifetime wildlife encounters.
