Overview

Xigera Safari Lodge is situated in the western Moremi Game Reserve in Botswana's Okavango Delta. This pristine wetland paradise is home to a great variety of wildlife including leopard and lion; elephant, buffalo and hippo; and giraffe, lechwe, reedbuck and sitatunga. Open floodplains studded with Ilala palms surround the densely wooded island that houses Xigera Safari Lodge. Impressive jackalberry, mangosteen and leadwood trees form an ancient canopy under which the lodge is nestled. All 12 suites have been carefully sited so as to give endless views out over the floodplains and the chance to watch passing wildlife.
