Discover a pristine wilderness
The culmination of a lifelong dream of the Tollman family, drawing on six decades of devotion to unparalleled luxury in service.
Xigera Safari Lodge is the fourth, and latest, African property to join The Red Carnation Hotel Collection, which in 2020 celebrated a century of hospitality.
It was nothing short of a dream come true for the Tollman family to become custodians of Xigera. Protecting the land and its wildlife, while empowering and uplifting local communities, is a cornerstone of the philosophy underpinning this remarkable new safari lodge.
Blending African design with unique luxury, outstanding cuisine with extraordinary wilderness experiences, Xigera’s pioneering concept is reinventing the art of an African safari.
Led by General Manager Peter Fergus, The Lodge at Ashford Castle is a proud part of the family-owned and run Red Carnation Hotel Collection and we are a family of passionate people, with a warm, inclusive ethos that embraces everything we do. Experience a genuinely friendly Irish welcome and discover first-hand our deep commitment to providing the very finest stay for our treasured guests.
