A quiet seaside retreat
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, and an Okavango Delta safari experience like no other.
Our guests may enjoy access to the Spa at our sister property, Summer Lodge, for a discounted rate of £15 per person, per day.
Relax with a swim in the large indoor pool, rest in the sauna or Jacuzzi, or indulge in a bespoke spa treatment. There’s also a fully equipped gym.
We’re committed to ensuring the wellbeing of our planet, as well as that of our guests. We have a wide range of vegetarian dishes available. We also work almost exclusively with local suppliers to reduce our food miles, and cultivate our own herb garden. Any food waste that cannot be recycled is taken to a bio-digester to be turned into electricity, with the bi-product used as fertiliser by local farmers.
Set in the beautiful Dorset countryside, there are wonderful walking and cycling trails in the vicinity, stretching up to Deer Park and through magical woodlands bursting with wildlife. Our team would be delighted to arrange for you a horse ride or bike hire with our local partners.
