&Beyond's Xaranna Tented Camp is situated near a permanent channel of the Okavango Delta in 25 000 hectares of pristine wilderness that is shared by only 18 guests. The Camp boasts breathtaking views of the channel, providing guests with a water and wilderness experience that combines the best of what the Okavango has to offer. Birders should watch out for the elusive Pel's fishing owl, while the endangered African wild dog and semi-aquatic red lechwe are endemic to the area.
It’s not often that we get to see rare and endangered birds, but when we do, it’s an amazing experience! We went on an afternoon safari hoping to see some lions. Within five minutes, we saw a pair of Southern Ground Hornbills. One had something in its beak that looked like a snake and after we left the them, just within a minute or so we saw some Wattled Cranes, just on the floodplain in front of the camp! It’s a great thing to see these birds so close to the camp. We did spot some lions later on and my guests said the lion sighting was just the cherry on top!
