Xigera Safari Lodge



This extraordinary safari lodge, located in the Moremi Game Reserve in the heart of the Okavango Delta, is a bold new statement, reinventing what it means to experience the African bush. Inspired by a deep love of the Delta and its wildlife, Xigera offers just 24 guests a remarkable opportunity to explore the richness of this UNESCO World Heritage Site – at their own pace, in their own time, however they wish.

Meticulously designed to frame the breathtaking floodplains and riverine forests, the lodge is in complete synergy with its surroundings. Spacious suites clad in flame-torched timber look out onto lily-filled lagoons, providing a front-row seat to the theater of the African bush. The interiors are filled with exceptional one-off works of art and design created by Africa’s most globally recognized names, in collaboration with award-winning gallery Southern Guild, from gleaming hand-forged copper and steel consoles by Conrad Hicks, to Adam Birch’s tactile creations carved right on-site. Quietly surprising touches are everywhere, from the lily-inspired spa to the remarkable three-story baobab sculpture overlooking the floodplain, offering the chance of a life-changing sleep-out beneath the velvet night sky.
