A national treasure
South Africa’s most cherished hotel stands majestically on Umhlanga’s beachfront, overlooking the Indian Ocean & the iconic lighthouse.
The Chesterfield Palm Beach is no longer part of The Red Carnation Hotel Collection. We would like to extend a huge thank you to all of the guests we have had the pleasure of welcoming to The Chesterfield Palm Beach over the past 24 years, and to all of our travel partners for their support, we hope to welcome you all to another Red Carnation Hotel soon.
Take a journey through our luxurious Xigera Safari Lodge... Situated in the western reaches of Botswana’s iconic Moremi Game Reserve, gazing out on the seasonal floodplains of the Okavango Delta, Xigera’s unique location offers unrivalled access to extraordinary safari experiences.
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 in Botswana; 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...
