Xigera Safari Lodge is located in the Moremi Game Reserve with private access to a 4,500-hectare (11 120-acre) wetland paradise in the heart of the Delta. Situated on one of the Okavango’s key waterways, Xigera Safari Lodge is surrounded by picturesque papyrus swamps and wooded islands and is renowned for its very high density of sitatunga antelope.
Most visitors arriving in Botswana touch down at the Sir Seretse Khama International Airport in Gaborone. From there, scheduled flights to Maun International Airport bring them to the main gateway to the Okavango Delta. Private lodges are generally reached by chartered light aircraft. Flights also arrive at Maun directly from neighbouring countries, and Fastjet now offers flights from Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. The road to Maun is a good quality paved road for self-drive visitors to the eastern delta, although driving at night is not recommended. A well-equipped 4×4 vehicle is essential to enter the delta area.
Main Route Distances
