The Red Carnation Hotel Collection’s Xigera Safari Lodge in Botswana will open in October. The lodge is on the western side of the Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta.
The 12 individually designed air-conditioned suites include a two-bedroom family suite situated on two linked islands.
Xigera Safari Lodge will feature two luxury spa rooms, offering a range of wellness treatments, an air-conditioned library stocked with research material, state-of-the-art gym and a swimming pool.
Guests fly in by light aircraft from Maun, which is 40 kilometres away.
Xigera monitors and keeps records of all fauna and flora, and works closely with Botswana’s Department of Wildlife and National Parks to ensure ongoing protection of the entire area.
The Xigera Energy Centre, a solar hybrid power system powered by a 400kW Tesla plant, supplies over 95% of the lodge’s energy needs, saving about 175 000 litres of diesel and 500 tons of carbon emissions each year.
Rates start from US$2 320 per adult per night sharing. This includes accommodation on a fully inclusive basis, park fees and all activities.
