Surrounded by water and nestled amongst riverine forest on the aptly “Paradise Island”, Xigera came is something of a water wonderland. The ebb and flow on the semi-permanent water allows for an every changing landscape of islands and channels. Seasonal boat trips to shallow water lagoons enable swimming and Mokoro excursions are a speciality, as are game drives on Nxabega Island.
Xigera comprises nine luxury en-suite tents (including a family tent) each with an outdoor shower and connected by elevated walkways. Built on wooden decks, the tents combine canvas and wood creating a light and natural feel that mirrors the surrounding water.
Meals and evening drinks are enjoyed in the lounge and dining area overlooking the permanently flowing channel or under the stars in a traditional African boma. Other camp highlights are the plunge pool and the camp "newspaper" (a sand pit built into the bridge to capture paw prints) which is "read" each morning, revealing last night’s unseen visitors.
HIGHLIGHT: Keep an eye out for these elusive Sitatunga antelope and Pel’s fishing-owl.
