Inside Botswana’s breathtaking safari lodge
It’s been dubbed the “most anticipated hotel launch in Africa” and Xigera Safari Lodge in Botswana’s wildlife-rich Okavango Delta does not disappoint.
Every aspect of this resort has been handcrafted and chosen by the Tollman family, founders of the Red Carnation hotels brand.
Hidden amid a canopy of magnificent indigenous trees, Xigera offers 12 spacious suites; each individually designed to offer a unique experience of the Okavango.
For multi-generational travellers, there is the impressive two-bedroom Family Suite, spread across two islands and bridged together with an extraordinary bronze lily centrepiece, the emblem of Xigera.
The lodge will offer game drives led by bush veterans Mike and Marian Myers with a team of the most experienced guides in Botswana.
After a day on the delta, head to the boma, a totemic fire-pit sculpture created by artist-blacksmith Conrad Hicks, for storytelling and stargazing.
Xigera Safari Lodge has a welcoming bar with a world-class wine list and cellar showcasing the finest vintages.
