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.
While the talented Kadoro chefs create a gourmet feast over open flame, settle in at your table inside where dozens of flickering candles imbue the space with warmth and charm. On wintry nights a fire crackles in the wide hearth as you enjoy an unforgettable evening of food and wine.
Dinner at Kadoro is offered at R1000 per person, and is available on request only. Kadoro is ideal for couples and families, but small groups can also be accommodated.
Kadoro has no electricity; outside, the starlit Cederberg Mountains wend their way into the distance under clear night skies. Ideal for romantic private dining and intimate groups, a dinner by candlelight will give you a glimpse into a bygone era. Enjoy this rural setting alongside an exquisite culinary experience of delicious braaivleis (barbecues) or wholesome soups and stews.
