Fodor's Expert Review Xigera Camp

Moremi Game Reserve, North West, Botswana Fodor's Choice

Under new ownership and completely rebuilt in 2020, this spectacular camp, pronounced kee-jer-ah, sets a new precedent for luxury and service. Palatial, wood-paneled, glass-fronted suites sit underneath curved canvas roofs overlooking the floodplain and feature Nespresso machines, premium-spirit stocked mini-bars, copper roll-top baths, oversized wooden sculptures, and even a flat-screen TV which emerges from its discreet hiding place by remote control. Set the temperature of each of the lounge, sleeping, and bathroom areas independently or open the dual sliding doors (glass and mesh) and reconnect with nature from one of three seating areas on your wrap-around deck. Activities include seasonal boating as well as year-round mokoro excursions and game drives. Alternatively, stay in camp and book a treatment in the waterside spa, work out in the state-of-the-art gym, or nestle in the cozy library. As the sun goes down, sip an aperitif from the bespoke cocktail menu in the atmospheric bar where a giant circular sunken sofa is warmed by the fire. For those seeking a little more adventure, you can sleep under the stars at the nearby baobab-styled tree house, or if it gets cold, retreat to the covered bedroom a floor below. The staff will accommodate your every whim and anticipate every desire, even handing you a pre-prepared takeaway coffee made-to-your-liking as you go on your early morning game drive. There is a strong conservational focus too: the whole camp is solar-powered while the extensive and mouth-watering à la carte menu (or 7-course wine-paired tasting menu) features hydroponic-grown herbs and an impressive range of locally-sourced ingredients.
