Xigera Safari Lodge is deeply rooted in the Okavango Delta, a breathtaking landscape of seasonal floodplains and riverine forests, tawny grasslands and verdant papyrus wetlands. Drawing inspiration from its ancient setting, Xigera rests effortlessly within the wilderness of this World Heritage Site.
All but hidden amid a canopy of magnificent indigenous trees, Xigera Safari Lodge offers 12 spacious suites; each individually designed to offer a unique experience of the Okavango. For multi-generational safari travellers, there is the impressive two-bedroom Family Suite, located on two islands and bridged together with an extraordinary bronze lily centrepiece, the emblem of Xigera.
Built with sustainability in mind – Xigera is 95% solar-powered – the lodge is equally a unique celebration of African art, culture and creativity: a living gallery of African talent.
Xigera showcases an extraordinary collection of pan-African art and design, created by a roster of 76 of Africa’s most globally acclaimed designers. It is a collection that is bold in vision and groundbreaking in its scope, the first of its kind on the continent.
Ireland has a rich history of artisan craftsmanship, and the west of Ireland in particular has drawn these craftspeople as a place of inspiration and work.
The enthusiasm and passion of these food producers is infectious and all the more intimate when they welcome you into their homes.
Travel back through the annals of time and meet the experts who carry the art forms of ancient Ireland into the present day.
Meet the people who have been shaped by this exposed landscape and learn about the skills and crafts that have allowed this resilient race to survive here over the centuries.
