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 in Botswana, and an Okavango Delta safari experience like no other.
Once you have arrived in Portree, follow these directions from Somerled Square.
Skye can be reached within a 5 hour drive from the Central Belt and you can arrive via the Skye Bridge or on the ferry from Mallaig. The ferry crossing takes around 45 minutes. Alternatively, drive north to the Kyle of Lochalsh and cross the iconic Skye Bridge. Both routes are absolutely stunning, so you may wish you arrive one way and depart via the other.
