In an ever-changing fragile eco-system of 15,000 square kilometres the Okavango Delta fans out over the Kalahari sand system, making it the 1000th Natural Wonder of the World. This precious jewel belongs to Botswana, and right at its heart in this unique and magnificent wetland is Xigera Safari Lodge. Situated on the western side of the famous Moremi Game Reserve, Xigera is host to a diversity of wildlife including the great predators, elephants, buffalo and unique species such as the secretive sitatunga and the friendly reedbuck.

Rare bird species such as Pels Fishing Owl make this island their home. Exquisite palm forests and long miscanthus grasses of the floodplains; papyrus lined channels and large floodwater lagoons all form a dramatic stage of an ancient land that showcases Africa’s greatest natural wilderness. Into this magical paradise, Xigera Safari Lodge offers exceptional generous hospitality to give you a unique bush experience in delicious comfort.
