Xigera Safari Lodge, Okavango Delta

An ultra-luxurious safari lodge with sustainability at its heart, Xigera sits beautifully amidst the riverine forests, lily-filled lagoons and open floodplains of the mighty Okavango Delta.

Set on a riverine island within the Moremi Game Reserve, Xigeria lies at the heart of a true wetland paradise traversed by lion, spotted hyena, leopard, sitatunga antelope and elephant. You’ll be able to experience the wonders of the region in a variety of ways, from exciting photographic game drives to insightful guided walks and excursions in glass-bottomed mokoros. Finishing off with magical ‘feet-in-the-water’ sundowners. With no set times or itineraries, a truly personalised experience in this UNESCO World Heritage Site awaits.

Set beneath ancient jackalberry, leadwood and mangosteen trees, the lodge’s 12 air-conditioned suites are carefully positioned to ensure panoramic floodplain views – allowing you to watch passing wildlife from the comfort of your own deck. The interiors showcase the handcrafted work of some of Africa’s most renowned artists. As well as a swimming pool, lily-inspired spa and gym, the property is made up of an inviting lounge and dining room, a star deck, traditional boma and outdoor fire-pit.
