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.
Our sister-vineyard is situated in the Hemel-en-Aarde (Heaven and Earth) valley near Hermanus, a 90-minute drive from Cape Town. The valley, and Bouchard Finlayson, is set in the heart of the Walker Bay wine district, where a cool maritime climate gives rise to highly-acclaimed Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
