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 (“Kee-jera”), a bold new statement in Botswana’s most unspoilt wilderness, opening in June 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.
There are just 12 suites, all fully air-conditioned, making them the first of their kind. Each one is an exquisite reimagining of the safari experience, showcasing the finest Southern African artisans and creating a design that is utterly in tune with its surroundings. Quietly surprising touches are everywhere, from the lily-inspired spa to the chance of a life-changing sleep-out beneath the velvet night sky.
But it is the people that define Xigera, as you'd expect from a Red Carnation creation, with 105 exceptional staff looking after 24 guests, allowing an experience of exclusive flexibility. Xigera offers a unique chance to explore the bush the way you want to, defined by the Red Carnation art of hospitality.
This is the story of Xigera. Opening June 2020…
