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 in Botswana, and an Okavango Delta safari experience like no other.
With a wide rooftop terrace offering breathtaking coastal views, The Lighthouse Bar is hailed as one of the best bars in Umhlanga. Look forward to regular live music performances as you discover the extensive menu of light meals, snack platters, fine wines and sundowner cocktails. Be sure to try the signature cocktail at The Oyster Box, the Umhlanga Schling, made with cane spirit and cane sugar. While the terrace tables are the most popular option, on match days the big-screen TVs always attract a crowd to enjoy the game.
Open daily from 12 noon - 11pm.
Children under 12 years old are not permitted in The Lighthouse Bar.
