County Mayo, Ireland
As Ireland's first and only Forbes Five Star Hotel and the former home of the Guinness family, Ashford Castle is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The hotel has reopened, we very much look forward to welcoming you back to the Ashford Estate.
Xigera Safari Lodge offers just 12 beautiful suites, 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.
The Tollman family has long had a profound love for Africa, and as the new custodians of Xigera Safari Lodge they are delighted to bring Red Carnation’s generous hospitality, personal service and exceptional design aesthetic to Botswana for the first time, drawing on six decades of devotion to unparalleled luxury in service.
Conservation and sustainability are at the heart of everything we do, powering the lodge almost entirely through solar energy and eliminating single-use plastics. Caring for the environment is a priority in every aspect of Xigera, but we also pour enormous effort into partnering with local communities, providing both empowerment and employment.
We are always delighted to discover our guests' photos and we look forward to sharing many new Xigera adventures in the coming months...
