If you’ve had Africa’s most exclusive safari destination on your radar for a while, let now be the time to start planning. Botswana has long been one of our favourite places in Africa for private safaris. The Okavango Delta — an area larger than Wales — has just 1,000 beds, all spread across a handful of intimate properties. As bottled-up travel demand builds, so too will the desire for an escape to this great wilderness expanse.
Keeping in time with the country’s border reopening is brand new Xigera Safari Lodge, on the western edge of the wildlife-rich Moremi Game Reserve. In a unique partnership by top safari veterans Great Plains and the prestigious Red Carnation Hotel Group, Xigera promises cutting edge renewable energy tech, sustainable conservation, and the finest hospitality. Not to mention the surroundings; palm-dappled floodplains, teeming with giraffe, hippo, elephant and cats right on your doorstep.Botswana Documentary Watch List:
