Okavango Delta, Botswana
The story of Xigera Safari Lodge is one of renewal. Of rebirth and family legacy, and of the pioneering spirit that drives us to seek out Africa’s wild spaces. The same spirit that inspired this remarkable reimagining, perhaps a complete reinvention, of an Okavango Delta safari. This is Xigera (pronounced ‘kee-jera’), named for the Pied Kingfisher that makes its home amid the watery channels of Botswana’s Moremi Game Reserve. Every aspect is handcrafted to beguile our guests’ senses and stir their souls – from the evocative interiors to one-of-a-kind encounters. But Xigera is equally a line in the sand. A raising of the bar. A bold statement in the realm of luxury safaris in Botswana, and an Okavango Delta safari experience like no other.
Situated on the western edge of the Moremi Game Reserve in the heart of the Okavango Delta, Xigera inhabits an entirely unspoilt piece of wilderness. The hotel itself is elegantly elevated above the reserve’s waterways, existing in perfect harmony with the environment it inhabits. During your honeymoon, there will be plenty of opportunities to head out to explore the reserve on private game drives and to feel at one with nature on bush picnics and during ‘feet in the water’ sundowners.
Sleep beneath the stars, enveloped by the calls of nature and the magic of the wilderness. Our striking baobab treehouse rises 10 metres above the floodplain, giving you unrivalled views across the reserve. Featuring an open-air viewing deck and luxurious indoor-outdoor bedroom, you're in for an unforgettable night in the treehouse of your dreams. Choose to arrive after lunch for sundowners and a picnic-style dinner on the deck, or depart Xigera Safari Lodge after dinner.
Our spectacular spa provides a tranquil haven for honeymooners. Experience sheer luxury whilst immersing yourself in the natural landscape in our meticulously designed spa, framed by breathtaking views of the seasonal flood plains and lush riverine forests. The healing power of nature is celebrated in our extensive selection of body and facial treatments, custom-created to focus on three pillars of wellness: Restoring, Calming and Purifying.
