After 70 years in hospitality, it is a dream come true to be the guardians of Xigera. Red Carnation and the Tollman family are committed to caring for and protecting the reserve, the area and the wildlife, and to the empowerment of local communities. Our custodianship is an expression of our profound love of Africa, and it is our wish that Xigera will leave a heart-print on every guest who visits and every person who works here.
Xigera Safari Lodge is the 18th property to join our collection, alongside The Twelve Apostles in Cape Town and the iconic Oyster Box, voted the best hotel in South Africa. It is our privilege to bring the outstanding service, generous hospitality and delicious cuisine that we are renowned for to Botswana. Xigera will be a safari lodge of exceptional design, with beautiful, spacious suites that are fully air conditioned. Our guests will enjoy land and water safaris among incredible wildlife, and exceptional experiences delivered by our dedicated and passionate team.
Our approach is entirely flexible, allowing our guests to create their own authentic, tailormade experiences, with the care and attention of the most knowledgeable local guides and hosts. We seek to uphold authentic bush traditions, alongside luxurious, visionary design, warm, passionate service, and generous hosting and hospitality. Our philosophy is “anything, any time”; our mission is to share the wonder of the Xigera wildlife experience and to leave a lasting, heartfelt impression.
