Xigera Camp, Botswa

Wednesday, 2 July 2014
After staying at the Selinda Camp, we moved on to Xigera, which is a camp that is based on the water. We were able to see lots of birds and beautiful groves of papyrus. The rooms were pretty and well appointed.

We loved the deck in front of the room. It overlooked the water and was very peaceful. One night Verdent Monkeys were playing on our deck and we watched them from a distance. 

The "Do Not Disturb" signs were adorable. You just put these across the walk way to your tent. 

One day we took a boat ride to bird watch and take pictures of big game from the water. We were able to get pretty close to a huge old bull elephant. He was magnificent! 

 After our boating trip, we ate lunch on a little island, set up for us by the fabulous Xigera staff.

Here's a look at some of the beautiful birds we saw on our adventure:

Saddle-billed Stork

James :)

Lilac-breasted Roller

African Fish Eagle

Grey Go-Away Birds

I put together a short video of elephant clips including shots of the elephant we watched on our Xigera trip.
