Get to Know Xakanaxa

Xakanaxa is a place of floodplains, forests, permanent water channels, islands and dramatic wildlife in the northeastern Okavango.

Xakanaxa, pronounced 'ka-ka-na-ka', is a crescent-shaped, crystal-clear lagoon at the tip of the Khwai River in the Okavango Delta – a place of incredible natural beauty and large densities of wildlife. This area, which forms part of the Moremi Wildlife Reserve, is also a birder's paradise, with rarities such as wattled crane and Pel's fishing-owl seen on a regular basis. It's a magical spot for photographers – a watery wonderland pulsating with colour and life.
