The power of passionDiscover the world of Red Carnation
Okavango Delta, Botswana
The story of Xigera Safari Lodge is one of renewal. Of rebirth and family legacy, and of the pioneering spirit that drives us to seek out Africa’s wild spaces. The same spirit that inspired this remarkable reimagining, perhaps a complete reinvention, of an Okavango Delta safari.
This is Xigera (pronounced ‘kee-jera’), named for the Pied Kingfisher that makes its home amid the watery channels of Botswana’s Moremi Game Reserve.
Every aspect is handcrafted to beguile our guests’ senses and stir their souls – from the evocative interiors to one-of-a-kind encounters.
But Xigera is equally a line in the sand. A raising of the bar. A bold statement in the realm of luxury safaris, and an Okavango Delta safari experience like no other.
Our sustainability efforts are currently focused on phasing out all single use plastics by 2022, while partnering with Winnow technology to reduce food wastage. The Red Carnation Hotel Collection is part of The Travel Corporation family of brands and works in proud partnership with its TreadRight Foundation to #MakeTravelMatter.
Help us combat the scourge of ocean plastics. For every beach-bucket of rubbish collected from Umhlanga beach by hotel residents, we offer a complimentary drink in the hotel bar. It’s our way of saying ‘thank you’ for helping us keep our beaches clean.
For each key card returned to reception, we make a donation of R1 to Rhinos Without Borders. We are proud to support this charity, whose mission is to move endangered rhinos from poaching hotspots in South Africa to protected conservancies in Botswana.
