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.

South Africa is a water-scarce country, and we have made enormous strides in ensuring we conserve water throughout the hotel, without impacting on the guest experience. Through initiatives such as two-minute shower timers, reusable ice cubes, waterless urinals and grey-water retention systems we have reduced water consumption in the hotel by a remarkable 42%. We are also committed to removing all unnecessary single-use plastics by 2022 and are working with Winnow to reduce food waste.
