2 nights for 2 at Xigera (opening 2020) in the Moremi Game Reserve in the heart of the Okavango Delta, Botswana

Item condition: New



This is the story of an ancient place; of rebirth, of family legacy, and of a lodge that is so pioneering, so authentic, that it reinvents the very idea of what it means to experience the African bush.

This is Xigera (pronounced “Kee-jera” and named after the pied kingfisher), a bold new statement in Botswana’s most unspoilt wilderness, opening in 2020 on the western side of the Moremi Game Reserve in the heart of the Okavango Delta.

Xigera is a labour of love, a miraculous and enchanting transformation that will create experiences that are, quite simply, extraordinary.

Unique, authentic and pioneering, this is the ultimate Bush experience.

The African wilderness is the birthplace of humankind. At Xigera, we have an innate, powerful connection with the earth, the bush, the rivers of the continent. Our lodge, which is 100% solar powered, is surrounded by palm-filled islands, breath-taking floodplains and riverine forests in the heart of the Okavango Delta. A pristine lacework of islands, papyrus swamps and dense trees, it is easy to see why this corner of Botswana is known as Africa’s ‘last Eden’.

The collection of extraordinary works of art and design, each one handmade and unique, is ground-breaking in its scope – created by a roster of Africa’s most globally recognised designers and the first of its kind on the continent for a design project of this scale. Xigera will feature 12 individually designed suites, including one two-bedroom family suite, situated on two islands, bridged together with an extraordinary bronze lily centrepiece – a recurring motif which represents Xigera – designed by Anton de Kock and created by Otto du Plessis. The whole lodge is surrounded by a canopy of magnificent trees and all structures are tucked into the bush.

At the entrance to Xigera Lodge, a magnificent hand-woven cane hippopotamus sculpture awaits to welcome you to the heart of Botswana. This is where your journey begins…

Travel date is very flexible, given that the lodge must still re-open as well as the current lockdown travel regulations.
The only stipulation is the ‘subject to availability’, which is particularly relevant as Xigera only offers 12 suites /  lodges, making the experience even more extra special.
