Fodor's Review

You'll find this camp deep in the central delta on Xaxaba (pronounced ka-ka-ba) Island, which is surrounded by pristine waterways, tall palm trees, and vast floodplains. At dawn and dusk hippos chortle, birds call, and hyenas whoop. Activities here are foot and water based. You'll glide through high, emerald-green papyrus tunnels in a mokoro; go powerboating on wide lagoons; or enjoy sundowners as you float silently in your mokoro on crystal-clear water as the sun

sets in a blaze of red and gold. Or have a front-row seat for the same nightly spectacle—a sunset—in the Fish Eagle Bar, which juts out over the water. Large walk-in tents are decorated in traditional African style with four-poster beds and lamps fashioned out of Botswana baskets and carved African pots. Sit out on your huge veranda, or snooze in the inviting canvas hammock. Dine in style in the elegant dining room where local artwork adds to the classic safari ambience. The main viewing deck overlooks vast expanses of water complete with dozing hippos. At this writing the camp is scheduled for a complete refurbishment in the first half of 2015.
