A story of remarkable renewal
Xigera is our love letter to the magic of the African bush.
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 meeting rooms and event spaces each showcase the latest technology and equipment, but more than that, they are settings that inspire and motivate. Each of our hotels offer beautiful and restorative design, and curated art collections that connect our guests with the local destination.
Now, more than ever, it’s important to offer flexibility alongside exceptional service, in a world where we transition between virtual spaces and reality. We are proud of our transformative “hybrid” concept, which connects physical and virtual guests through an immersive and engaging experience.

We know that a business trip lasts much longer than the meeting or event itself, which is why we pride ourselves on ensuring that our hotels are comfortable and welcoming for business travellers. From in-room dining that is personalised, healthy and delicious, to thoughtful touches in every bedroom and a warm welcome for every guest, including solo female travellers, we place great emphasis on the guest experience.
We are proud that our hotels are ideally located to showcase the very best of each destination, with meaningful experiences that really connect our guests with the local community. In London and Geneva, each hotel is close to the city's best attractions, while in Dorset, Guernsey, Ireland, Palm Beach and Africa our hotels are set in spectacular locations overlooking the ocean, wilderness or countryside.
