Xigera Safari Lodge
The Okavango Delta

Xigera Safari Lodge in Setswana stands for ‘Paradise Island’ – aptly named given its picture perfect palm-fringed islands, crystal clear channels and papyrus beds. From Xigera, safari outings are varied and hugely enjoyable. Seasonal boat trips, Mokoro excursions and game drives on the game-rich Nxabega Island are all available. Boat trips do depend on water levels which tend to vary, but the level will always allow for some boating where you may encounter a wallowing hippo, a lone crocodile or the rare and elusive Sitatunga antelope.   

Xigera Safari Lodge has 9 spacious and airy tents nestled between giant riverine forest trees, connected by an elevated wooden walkway. There is a well-appointed family suite which has 2 bedrooms each with en-suite bathrooms. A daily and most unusual highlight at the lodge is reading the ‘morning news’ – the tracks of nocturnal visitors left behind in a sandpit on the bridge.

There is a charming sitting area and dining is either al fresco or in the lovely dining room. The pool area is secluded and a super treat for those hot October afternoons!

For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.

Client Testimonials

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
