Created in honour of our President and Founder Beatrice Tollman
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.
Join us for our traditional Afternoon Tea with a twist.
Enjoy an irresistible selection of indulgent treats alongside freshly made dainty English sandwiches and hand-baked traditional British scones with lashings of clotted cream and lavish strawberry preserve. Enjoy a specially crafted Fall Mimosa alongside your tea.
Available: September 1st - November 31st (Unavailable on Thanksgiving)
Price: $42 per adult (plus tax and gratuity)
Our beautiful hotel garden centres around a large heated outdoor pool, lined with leafy palms and vibrant flowers. There is also a hot tub and plenty of pool loungers to stretch out with a good book, providing guests with a private sun-dappled retreat, perfect for relaxing beneath the gently waving Florida palms with a favourite drink in hand.
The famous Leopard Lounge is one of the area’s most popular night spots. The sultry interiors include black lacquer walls, leather-lined banquettes and a striking leopard-print carpet, as well as a beautiful ceiling which has been hand-painted by celebrated local mural artist Lino Mario. Our talented mixologist team prepare classic cocktails and delicious signature “Leopard” martinis as live music plays all night long.
