The power of passionDiscover the world of Red Carnation
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, and an Okavango Delta safari experience like no other.
The Hotel d’Angleterre is the work of the celebrated architect Anthony Krafft, conceived and later acknowledged as a heritage site of the city of Geneva, offering 30 spacious rooms, most of which had a spectacular view of Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc.
Built in 1872, the hotel is a true city landmark, with an impressive facade designed by celebrated architect Anthony Krafft. Not only is Hotel d’Angleterre famous for its refined style and generous service, but our pedigree means we are also proud to have some of the longest-serving members of staff of any hotel; one member of our concierge team was with us for 42 years.
Every one of our team members is empowered to make a real difference, offering remarkably considerate service and discrete attention to detail. From freshly-cut flowers in the suites to personalised gifts for special occasions, it is no surprise that guests often remember the names of our staff and ask after them when they return.
The Hotel d’Angleterre is a proud part of the family-owned and run Red Carnation Collection and member of the Leading Hotels of the World. We are deeply proud of the hotel’s history, both as one of the first hotels in Geneva, and as the city’s only luxury boutique hotel.
We pride ourselves on our local relationships, and carefully design memorable experiences for guests. From sourcing culinary experiences to historic tours, our knowledgeable concierge team ensures every stay is as seamless and personalised as possible.
