Xaa Safaris Pty Ltd

Xaa Safaris is a mobile safari service provider based in Maun. The name Xaa, a Sesarwa name for fire, pays tribute to the first people to settle in Botswana, Basarwa. Fire serves various roles in the lives of Basarwa from being a symbol of presence to domestic purposes as well as being central to social gatherings. Basarwa continue to gather around the fire to pass on knowledge which has transcended the test of time. Thus the name Xaa epitomizes our commitment to serve all our stakeholders just the same way xaa has been instrumental to the livelihoods of the first settlers of Botswana.
