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.
Here the wide wooden decks are lit by campfires and candlelight, the tables laid with fine linen for guests to enjoy an authentic South African braai – barbecue – as the lodge chefs serve up a generous buffet of grilled meats, traditional salads, fire-baked breads and local desserts.
As the stars wheel above, and the moon floats above ancient mountain peaks, raise a glass – of South African wine, of course – to another unforgettable day in Africa.
