Discover a true wilderness paradise in the heart of Botswana’s safari jewel – the Okavango Delta

Xigera Safari Lodge forms part of the esteemed Red Carnation Hotel Collection, renowned for exemplary guest service and memorable, personalised experiences around the world, which are not to be spared in this pristine part of Botswana 

Xigera – opening on 1 December 2020 – is not just a luxury safari lodge. Strong focuses on eco, sustainable practices and community involvement is what sets this lodge apart, as does its commitment to showcasing art and architecture from talented designers, artisans and artists from around Botswana, Southern Africa, and the world. Walking into Xigera is like walking into a masterpiece, but one that is entirely immersed in the natural environment that it finds itself in. 

Experience world-class private guiding through the waterways and safari paths of this part of the Delta, on early morning and evening game drives, take part in a scheduled yoga session, or enjoy a leisurely mokoro excursion in search of birds, hippos and red lechwe on the banks. The time is truly yours to command; you make your own journey here. 

Incredible food and wine await! Inspired by the backdrop of Botswana and Southern Africa, you’ll enjoy locally harvested food, beautifully prepared by the chefs and presented with a flourish. Sip on a glass of Bouchard Finlayson wine – from an award-winning vineyard in the coastal Hemel-en-Aarde valley near Cape Town – and marvel at another incredible Delta sunset. 

From roaring lions to the chirp of a nightjar, the sounds of Africa will call you into her fold; this is truly the magic of Xigera

Your Itinerary

3 nights at Xigera in the Okavango Delta

On arrival into Botswana, you’ll enjoy a scenic flight from Maun International Airport directly to Xigera Safari Lodge’s private airstrip. Enjoy a leisurely game drive into camp, where the welcoming staff of Xigera await you with a refreshing drink or two. It’s time to relax and unwind, and take in the slow pace of the Okavango Delta – Botswana’s incredible inland wilderness.

Over the next few days, you really can choose your own itinerary: enjoy early morning game drives, camera in hand, or head out on a guided walk with your private ranger. Return for a hearty breakfast and perhaps join the scheduled yoga session on the deck while the sun grows higher in the sky or escape for a pampering spa treatment in the pavilion or in the privacy of your luxury air-conditioned suite. Head out on an afternoon mokoro excursion, as your poler points out birds and insects and keeps an eye out for an elephant or hippo who may be resting on the banks. Afternoon game drives in the Delta are a true highlight, as the sky grows pink, orange and red when the sun dips below the horizon. Enjoy evenings in the stylish dining room, with fine cuisine complemented by award-winning local and international wines.

There’s no end to your experiences and opportunities for game-viewing at Xigera. It truly is time spent well in this special part of Botswana.
