Botswana has a semi-arid climate, and Xigera sees all its extremes as well as its long, settled spells. The summer season begins in November and ends in March, while the winter season begins in May and ends in August. The natural pleasures of Xigera are open all year round but local animal wildlife is at its most active and visible from May to October.
We believe Xigera to be the ultimate bush experience. Our approach to hospitality is one of absolute flexibility, where our guests are free to choose exactly when and how they discover everything that Xigera has to offer. We believe in creating completely bespoke itineraries for our guests - our dedicated reservations team is on hand to help plan your trip and ensure that your Xigera escape is truly unique.
A little-known ecological gem within the Okavango Delta, Xigera is built on ‘Paradise Island’, a haven among the wetlands in the Moremi Game Reserve.
The nearest major international airport is in Johannesburg, South Africa.
