Overview

Xigera Safari Lodge (pronounced 'kee-jeera') is found on one of the Okavango Delta's key waterways, in the western section of Botswana's Moremi Game Reserve. You can expect the extraordinary at Xigera from soul-stirring wildlife encounters to the art, design and true craftsmanship of the lodge itself.

When you aren't savouring the pampering sessions of a luxury spa, mastering your downward dog in a yoga session, or keeping fit at the state-of-the-art gym, the lodge offers an array of activities. Take to the skies on a helicopter safari, spend a secluded night in the Baobab Treehouse, or join an insightful tour of the lodge's main bar, boma, library and dining areas. Each piece of décor tells a story of the African continent and is a celebration of her rich heritage.

You will go on game drives, float serenely down waterways in a mokoro and explore on game walks, becoming acquainted with the finer intricacies of the landscape. Exclusivity, quality and unsurpassed service make Xigera Safari Lodge a truly magical African safari. It is perfectly paired with an addition of the Selinda Reserve, touted as one of Africa's great wildlife reserves and a National Geographic photographer's playground.

Rooms

Standard Suite

Xigera comprises twelve luxury suites, each individually styled. They are set within indigenous forest, raised on stilts, and gazing over the floodplains and wandering wildlife. In keeping with the living gallery theme of the lodge, each suite has been designed with decadent layering of materials and textures including timber, bronze and hand-crafted wood. Each suite is air-conditioned and offers a daily laundry service. The suites have a separate lounge, bedroom, dressing area, full bathroom, outdoor shower, and private decks with daybeds for couch safaris.

Other Rooms

The Baobab Treehouse is one kilometre from the lodge, with a guide stationed nearby. It was designed and built in the shape of the iconic Baobab Tree. It features breath-taking views from each of its three levels. The bedroom is on the second level with beautiful, handcrafted furniture, and both the bedroom and bathroom spaces have canvas walls. Ascend to the third level and you will find an open-air deck, perfect for reading or soaking in the ambience of the African wild. An open-air king size bed gives the option of a night spent directly under the stars.

Facilities

Xigera's main bar area, library and dining areas are a visual feast, where service from staff far surpasses expectations; it's the place where everyone will know your name. The lounge area features a copper-clad fireplace in the form of a Lily, Xigera's emblem.

When you aren’t spinning safari tales fireside in the lounge, you can relax in the human sized woven 'nests' that decorate the outdoor decks. Two luxury spa treatment rooms, a fitness centre and a swimming pool all look out over the Delta. Each area feels as if it is blended seamlessly into the landscape.

Dining

Dining at Xigera is an exceptional 'culinary safari', blending fresh local ingredients with African cooking flair. Curated dining experiences means you can choose between a bush breakfast, a picnic on your private deck, formal dining in the dining room, or revel in al fresco dining in the boma. The chefs are happy to oblige with any dining choice. An extensive wine cellar features award-winning vintages sourced from all corners of the globe.

Traveller Reviews

Xigera Safari Lodge
LE

Leona Edwards

Xigera Lodge had a beautiful setting and the waterways were relaxing. A few less animals on the rather parched land compared with Chobe but we really loved the lodge. The food was quite outstanding, ( they have 6 chefs!) the place very professionally run and our guide was outstanding. Goms our guide whilst pretty young had knowledge that was above average. We learnt so much! Very enjoyable.
