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.
Proclaimed as a South African National Heritage Site, Bushmans Kloof protects more than 130 unique rock art sites across the 7500-hectare reserve. While recognising the immeasurable value these ancient paintings hold in the nation’s cultural landscape, we are honoured to be able to share these shards of human history with visitors.
In addition, the Bushmans Kloof Heritage Centre features a unique collection of artefacts, reference works and photography, documenting the culture and history of the San people.
The Bushmans Kloof rock art excursions have been selected as a MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® experience. Chosen for the positive impact it has on the traveller and the communities we explore, it directly advances the United Nations’ Global Goal 11 'Sustainable Cities and Communities' by preserving ancient traditional art, an important element of Bushmans Kloof's cultural heritage.
