Xakanaxa has one of the best locations in Botswana and is the original camp at Xakanaxa (pronounced Ka-Kan-A-Ka). Set in the heart of the Moremi Wildlife Reserve which is rated as being one of the finest game-viewing areas in Africa, incorporating most of the Delta water and a vast selection of exotic wildlife. To the south and east the reserve offers sanctuary to the most varied herds in Southern Africa. To the north and west of the lodge are the permanent lagoons and waterways of the Okavango. The game drives through this sector of Moremi take one through a large variety of different vegetation types, down winding tracks, through mopane forests and across lush grasslands. The waterways are either forded by vehicles or crossed on rustic log bridges. The camp faces out over the Xakanaxa lagoon on the Khwai River, where boat trips lead into the sinuous channels of the Delta; one of Africa’s greatest natural wonders. Game in the area includes just about everything imaginable and game to be seen on the game drives include tsessebe, lechwe, wildebeest, impala, waterbuck, elephant, sable and giraffe. The predators are prevalent and lion are often heard calling in the early morning. Leopard, wild dog and hyena are often sighted. Birding in the area is excellent, especially in the spring and summer months when the migrants are breeding. To the north are the world-famous heronries which attract large numbers of breeding storks and herons. In the summer months the fishing is very good. Mainly bream (Tilapia) but there are also tiger fish. Boat trips and game drives are conducted by a team of experienced professional guides.

The camp offers six walk-in safari tents near the water, each set on a concrete base, and furnished with two beds, a table and chairs. There's a reed-walled dining room and bar, hot- and cold-water showers and flush toilets. Light is supplied by hurricane lamps.
