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 in Botswana, and an Okavango Delta safari experience like no other.
This park has a special place in the heart of Geneva’s citizens. Its paths are the perfect place for an idyllic stroll in the centre of the city. Part of the park is the site of the Flower Clock and the National Monument commemorating Geneva’s integration into the Swiss Confederation. In the centre, a giant bronze fountain offers cool water to young and old.
The Parc La Grange is the single largest green space in Geneva and some will agree that it's also the most beautiful. It is famous for it's biggest rose garden in Geneva. A rich Roman settled in the park around 50-60 AD, remnants of this distant time have been preserved, you can see roman vestiges hidden behind the 18th Century villa. The last occupier was politician and arts enthusiast William Favre who entrusted the park to the City of Geneva in 1918.
Below the Old Town, in the heart of the city Geneva has created its first botanical garden. In and around the Parc des Bastions you will find the world-renowned Reformation Wall and the leading reformers, the Palais Eynard, seat of the city government, and the old university building with its library. The former bandstand is now a restaurant. On its side, a giant checkers game and chessboard attract players and spectators alike.
