Amazing accommodation right in the heart of Moremi National Park. From the moment we arrived to the time we had to leave all the staff were so friendly and couldn’t do enough for you to make sure you had a comfortable stay. I will guide was just brilliant. He managed to track the lions in the morning before everybody else got there so we had a great view of six lionesses. We also witnessed a leopard and her cub eating the kill. The accommodation is in a Safari tent which is more like a lodge. Massive double bed under spacious bathroom area. I love the fact that you get hot water bottles to take to bed on a night and take out on the first morning game drive.
This place is truly special. We instantly felt at home with a warm welcome from all the staff. This atmosphere continued throughout our stay. We felt like part of the family. The grounds are beautiful with a variety of wildlife in camp (resident Hippo, Warthogs, Monkeys and plenty of birds). The suites are spacious, clean, comfortable and feel luxurious. My wife is gluten free and the chef went out of their way to ensure food was suitable. From the start freshly baked gluten free bread was presented, there were always separate gluten free versions of the meal held back specifically, and she never had to ask as they were always aware of her dietary requirement and were prepared. We can’t praise this approach highly enough. Outside of this, the food and service were both exceptional. Our guide, Monty, really made this trip special. We had such fun exploring the area on our game drives and he took time to teach us about the area, the animals and how he was tracking the animals we wanted to see (he asked us when he met us what or favourites were and ensured we saw all that we could). We were extremely lucky with our sightings, Leopard, Elephant, Giraffe, Hippo, Wild Dogs , but the Lions were eluding us. He never gave up and we spent our last day tracking, and with Monty’s expertise, managed to locate them and witness as a pair of Lioness stalked their prey. Monty really went out of his way to make our stay memorable. We would go back to Camp Xakanaka without any hesitation.…
Whilst you go on safari primarily to see the wildlife a top quality camp is a bonus. This camp is one of the best: the staff are wonderful, my guide (Monty) was great and ensured that my dream of seeing wild dogs was met, the location spectacular, the accommodation clean, comfortable with all the facilities you need - it even has wi-fi! The staff choir - sing and dance you to the dining room in the evening are a highlight.
Well what a super stay at Camp Xanaxa . The ‘tents’ are luxurious with fabulous bathrooms including 2 sinks. All the staff at the camp were so friendly it was absolutely delightful. A special shout out to Yompy who took such good care of us, nothing was too much trouble. The food was 10/10, must mention the lamb and apricot skewers, so good I’m still talking about them. There’s so much wildlife at the camp we didn’t need to leave our verandah in the afternoons. We saw Hippo, monkeys, buffalo, banded mongoose, a water monitor, and countless beautiful birds without stepping outside of the camp. Our guide Monty was such a super chap, so knowledgeable and fantastic at tracking. I’d highly recommend choosing Camp Xakanaxa as part of your safari holiday.
We've just spent 3 nights at Camp Xakanaxa, and we're blown away. The staff were awesome, food good, but our guide Khumo was absolutely magnificent. We found the lodge superbly positioned, with stunning sunsets, and can't recommend the lodge enough
The staff were excellent and really went the extra mile to ensure that our stay was comfortable. The lodge is beautiful and the sunsets were amazing. The game drives and boat cruises were fantastic - Harry was a great guide, knowledgeable, funny and committed to ensuring that we have the best possible experience. We loved every moment.
We had the most amazing time at this camp. The staff were beyond kind and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Our guide, Harry, was the best guide ever, and we have done many of these safari trips in the past. Definitely, the best outfit we have visited.
Xakanaxa is hands down one of the best lodges I have stayed at in Botswana. The staff there along with manager and everyone was wonderful and amazing. I traveled there during COVID 2021 and it was a wonderful experience. I felt special every day as the staff really went out of their way to take care of me. During tea, since I was traveling by myself, they would join me. They prepared such delicious meals. During one of the high tea experiences, I mentioned to the manager that I liked the cake that they served and she saved me and after dinner gave it to me as dessert. The staff paid attention to everthing and it made my stay superb. The guide TS was amazing. He was a great driver and knew so much about the animals, their behavior and where to find them. Moremi is a haven when it comes to birds, animals overall. We had got a radio in on one of the game drives about leopard sighting that was also mobile. He drove us there in record time and we were able to see the animal. Thank you staff and team at camp Xakanaxa.…
Xakanaxa was an amazing lodge, in a stunning area with incredible nature and animals. The staff was outstanding, without exception. Our guide Khumo had a lovely energy, and was kind, pleasant, thoughtful and knowledgeable. I would particularly like to mention the care and attention paid to our dietary requirements – vegetarian and gluten free. The kitchens even made special gluten free bread, muffins and cakes. Also, we had left a hat at Savuti, and mentioned this at Xakanaxa, and the staff followed up and organised for it to be sent on. It arrived safely – duly washed and packaged. We cannot thank the staff enough for their exceptional service, kindness and care.
My wife and I stayed at Camp X for 3 nights in September of 2021. We stayed at several Desert & Delta camps and this was our clear favorite. Our room/tent was clean, well maintained, and well equipped. It was the perfect mix of modern comfort and safari rustic. The grounds and common areas were also immaculately cared for and beautiful. All of the staff were friendly, welcoming, and warm. Our server while we were there was Mpoh (that spelling might be wrong, my apologies) and she was an absolute delight. In addition to being friendly and outgoing, she kept a kindly watchful eye on us, and even inquired about if I was feeling okay on a day when I didn't eat very much (we were about to leave on a tiny plane and I was planning ahead for airsickness). The staff planned several surprise meals and stops during our game drives, including a lunch in the game reserve and sundowners next to a pond, where we sat on blankets and watched elephants coming by for a drink. Someone was always there to greet us when we were coming and going and we really felt like we were not just guests, but part of a community. Our guide, Harry, was one of the absolute highlights of our entire trip to Southern Africa. He was not only an incredibly knowledgeable guide, he was also warm, funny, and sincere. He answered all of our many, many questions with patience and we had some really great conversations with him about conservation, our respective homes, and much more. It felt a little bit like saying goodbye to a new friend when Harry took us to the airstrip to meet our departure plane and I can't say enough about how much of a positive impact he had on our experience. The food at the Camp was GREAT and I don't know how the chef did it in a camp kitchen. I wish I had some of the recipes to try to recreate at home and the variety of choices was excellent too. I would recommend Camp X to anyone going on safari in Botswana and we are already talking about returning someday.…
