There are a maximum of 6 Meru-style tents individually set-up in a prime location overlooking the world-renown Chief's Island. Each of the tents sleeps 2 people, which means the camp can accommodate 12 people in total.
This is the perfect place for an intimate crowd that favours an authentic "glamping" experience where the focus is on game viewing, activities and staying in a remote location.
Xaxaba Mobile Camp is a rustic camp, but offers all the basics and comforts from home. You will sleep on raised beds and enjoy exhilarating outdoor bucket showers, while all your other basic needs will be tended to.
Xababa Island is run by the community, and the tented camp will be in one of 3 locations on the island. The team will set-up everything up prior to your arrival, making this a completely non-participatory camping experience.
Each of the 6 tents sleeps 2 people on individual stretchers. Comfortbale linen, pillows and a matress is provided, ensuring a good night's sleep. Each tent has an ensuite canvas bathroom complete with bucket shower and eco-bush toilet.
To freshen and spruce up, you are provided with standing hand basins that are constantly renewed with fresh water. There is also a seating area just outside your tent, complete with a canvas shade cover.
Each of the tents are supplied with lanterns (one per tent), but we do recommend you bring along a torch as there is no electricity. This also means you cannot charge your items and will need to bring spare batteries.
Despite the camp being rustic, you will still enjoy house keeping and turn downs. Tents are also sprayed to prevent mosquitoes and bugs. In essence, accommodation is perfectly adequate and supplies all the creature comforts from home.
