Running until Christmas, it has a series of offers that make the prospect of a last-minute getaway even more irresistible.

On every Saturday and Sunday throughout October, we will be paying homage to the German tradition of Oktoberfest by serving a selection of culinary delights and, of course, German beers.

Our Halloween High Tea is sure to prove fun for all the family: prizes go to the best dressed. Sample the stunning produce of the Delheim and Glen Carlou vineyards through our Wine Wednesdays. On 9 November, treat yourself to our Tata Harper Tea by the Sea, where you will be pampered with goodie bags and organic skincare products that leave you feeling fully restored.

Xigera Safari Lodge, Botswana
North of the border, in more ways than one it is a celebratory time for our Botswanan neighbours. From 28 September, all remaining COVID-19 restrictions and protocols were officially removed. In conjunction with this wonderful news, we also wanted to draw your attention to how our child policy has recently been amended: from now on, the minimum age for guests at Xigera is no longer 12, but rather six years old. Breathtaking bird migration and lush green leaves on our sausage trees are just two of the gifts of spring that will crown your dream trip, for guests of all ages, to Xigera. And what greater gift could there be than to spend Christmas in paradise? Extend your stay in the bush and benefit from four nights for the cost of three this festive season.
