At the heart of each suite is an exquisite four-poster bed, custom designed and inspired by the intricate nests of the local weaver birds. The use of rich textiles and unique prints creates a sense of warmth and comfort that makes every room feel like a personal sanctuary.

Activities at Xigera Safari Lodge
Enjoy day and night While Xigera Safari Lodge is located in a water-rich section of Moremi, its allure extends far beyond the wetlands, introducing guests to an array of unique safari experiences. Game drives form an integral part of the Xigera adventure, offered year-round and subject to the rhythm of African wildlife. Setting out in open 4x4 vehicles, guests can behold the riveting spectacle of wildlife in their natural habitat. During the chillier or wetter days, Xigera ensures your comfort isn't compromised. You will be provided with hot water bottles, cosy blankets, and lined ponchos, helping you to keep your focus on the enthralling landscapes and captivating wildlife.
An undeniable highlight of Xigera is its array of water-based activities. You can glide across the serene waterways of the delta in a two-seater glass-bottom mokoro, a traditional dugout canoe, offering a unique perspective on aquatic life beneath the lily-covered surface. This is truly an experience that sets Xigera apart, allowing guests to immerse themselves in the tranquil aquatic rhythm of the Okavango.
Six-seater motorboats are also available, two of which are fitted with a glass bottom, and two featuring an upper-level roof seating structure, offering an enhanced vantage point from which to survey the landscape. Please note that these water-based adventures are subject to seasonal water levels. Regardless of the season, each day at Xigera promises a unique blend of adventure and tranquillity, forever imprinting the magic of the Moremi in your memory.

Perched ten metres above the ground, this secluded retreat offers a breathtaking 360-degree view of the surrounding wilderness. It is an unforgettable experience to lay back on the plush, outdoor daybed, enveloped by the whisper of the Moremi breeze and the melodic chorus of nocturnal creatures. Remember, the Xigera Treehouse is a sought-after experience, and needs to be pre-booked to secure your night amongst the stars.
