Okavango Delta, Botswana
The story of Xigera Safari Lodge is one of renewal. Of rebirth and family legacy, and of the pioneering spirit that drives us to seek out Africa’s wild spaces. The same spirit that inspired this remarkable reimagining, perhaps a complete reinvention, of an Okavango Delta safari. This is Xigera (pronounced ‘kee-jera’), named for the Pied Kingfisher that makes its home amid the watery channels of Botswana’s Moremi Game Reserve. Every aspect is handcrafted to beguile our guests’ senses and stir their souls – from the evocative interiors to one-of-a-kind encounters. But Xigera is equally a line in the sand. A raising of the bar. A bold statement in the realm of luxury safaris in Botswana, and an Okavango Delta safari experience like no other.
Each of the 17 rooms and suites at the Lodge offer private patios overlooking manicured lawns and lush indigenous gardens that blend seamlessly into the rocky wilderness of the surrounding reserve. Guests enjoy access to four serene swimming pools, with well-marked walking trails to allow for independent exploring.
While the serenity of this pristine mountain wilderness is itself a balm for the soul, The Spa is the focus of the healing energy of Bushmans Kloof. The Spa is accessible to residents only and does not offer day-visitor facilities.
