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, and an Okavango Delta safari experience like no other.
From single-track MTB trails through the fynbos, to scenic coastal rides, Cape Town is paradise for pedallers. From the front door of the hotel a scenic stretch of coastal road runs along the Atlantic Ocean, through the village of Hout Bay and over the world-famous Chapman’s Peak scenic drive.
If you’d like to explore beyond the pathways in our fynbos garden, the Table Mountain National Park offers a wonderful array of walking trails suitable for all fitness levels. If you’d rather not walk alone, a staff member will gladly accompany you on some of the most popular routes traversing this World Heritage Site.
