Xigera Safari Lodge (pronounced ‘kee-jera’), named for the Pied Kingfisher that makes its home amid the watery channels of Moremi Game Reserve in Botswana’s Okavango Delta. This pristine wetland paradise is home to a great variety of wildlife including leopard and lion; elephant, buffalo and hippo; and giraffe, lechwe, reedbuck and sitatunga. Open floodplains studded with Ilala palms surround the densely wooded island that houses Xigera Safari Lodge. Impressive jackalberry, mangosteen and leadwood trees form an ancient canopy under which the lodge is nestled.
Xigera Safari Lodge offers just 12 beautiful suites and an exceptional Baobab Treehouse, each resting effortlessly in this wild landscape. Amid this remarkable setting, Xigera’s design aesthetic is wholeheartedly dedicated to celebrating African art, design and creativity. Each piece has been handcrafted and inspired by the incredible natural surroundings; every experience can be tailor-made to your wishes… an entirely new imagining of the African bush.
All 12 suites have been carefully sited so as to give endless views out over the floodplains and the chance to watch passing wildlife. The 11 standard suites include a separate lounge, bedroom, dressing area, full bathroom and outdoor shower, Wi-Fi and air-conditioning, as well as a private deck with a daybed offering uninterrupted floodplain views. The Xigera Family Suite consists of two complete full bedrooms each with their own full bathroom, dressing area and outdoor shower and all the offerings found in a normal suite, joined by an inter-leading lounge area that opens up onto a deck with a daybed.
