Client Rating for Botswana 5/5 from 120 reviews

This was probably my favourite camp. Moremi reserve was beautiful, more picturesque than the other areas, and the wildlife encounters spectacular and just kept coming! At Camp Xakanaxa the tents were traditional but very comfortable and close to the wildlife. The only problem with this camp is its unpronounceable name!
