There is no better way to experience the Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta than to travel through it in mokoro by day, and camp out on a vegetated island at night, all essential elements of Xigera Mokoro Trails Camp. Accommodations included a 3m X 3m dome tent with a mini veranda and hand washing station. Each en-suite tent houses two cots with pure cotton linens, duvets, and pillows, as well as a bedside table with solar powered light, and luggage bench. Enter the open air bathroom through a zippered door at the back of the tent and experience the true bush experience of a tin bucket shower (hot water is available whenever you require it). The eco-toilet requires only a scoop of ash, and biodegradable soaps are available.
The common area of camp surrounds a camp fire and includes a covered kitchen area, where the camp staff makes the most memorable of meals, a dining table and bar area, and a separate bathroom facility. The experience is aimed at exposing the permanently flooded inner Delta via its serene waterways and islands of trees and bush.
The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
