Pronounced ‘Ka-ka-ne-ka’, Camp Xakanaxa was one the first set up in Botswana’s mesmerising Okavango Delta. Today, it has a welcoming balance between old-school rustic charm and modern conveniences and, being fenced, is a good choice for families travelling with pre-teen children. It is also wheelchair-friendly and has four open-roofed Land Cruisers for game drives in Moremi Game Reserve, as well as four mekoro (dugout canoes) and three power boats for exploring the gentle reeded waterways of the Delta.
There are 12 twin-bedded Meru-style tents and a separate guide’s tent for those who bring along a personal tracker, guide or other staff. There is also one of the largest swimming pools in the Delta and a cosy fire pit for convivial sundowners.
As part of the laid-back atmosphere of Africa, Camp Xakanaxa has an ‘open bar’ where you can help yourself to your favourite tipple and the kitchen staff will be happy to prepare some local dishes if you want to extend your Delta adventure to your taste buds!
