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.
The entire venue can be yours for your big day with our exclusive use option. Your family and friends can truly make themselves at home in each of the 53 rooms and suites and enjoy each of the unique hotel spaces in peaceful seclusion. You'll receive a host of complimentary extras too, including valet services, music, a dedicated planner and a suite for the bride and groom. We will also assist in any styling themes you'd like to incorporate throughout.
With the whole place to yourself you and your guests can relax at leisure - some may like to start the day with a golf excursion while the bridal party enjoy a Champagne breakfast and have hair and makeup done in preparation for the ceremony to follow.
We always tailor each wedding so that it's a truly unique event that reflects your personal tastes and preferences. Licensed for civil ceremonies, the light and airy Pavilion surrounded by palm trees and flowers comfortably accommodate up to 100 wedding guests. Located near to the pool, it's an ideal space for your celebration.
Looking for something smaller? The Pool Deck provides a wonderful relaxed setting to host your ceremony for up to 50 people in a lovely shaded and secluded area.
We look forward to bringing your loved ones together to celebrate your beautiful wedding in the timeless setting of The Chesterfield.Explore more
The Pavilion is perfect for small gatherings of up to 20 guests with this traditional room providing warmth and intimacy with rich wood panelling adding to the elegant feel. It is particularly popular for blessings and vow renewals.
Afterwards, spend an unforgettable evening in The Chesterfield’s world-famous Leopard Lounge & Restaurant, where you will be struck by the fine dining, vibrant atmosphere and seductive sophistication, with talented pianists and live bands to keep you and your guests dancing into the night.
Our experienced wedding planners are equipped with all the skills, talent and enthusiasm required to make every moment utterly magical.
The ceremony itself is only one aspect of this special occasion and we cater for all the other celebrations you wish to host, including your Rehearsal Dinner, Wedding Reception, Bridal Shower and Farewell Brunch. We can also plan wonderful renewal of vows ceremonies.
