Conservation

The lodge has partnered with Wild Entrust Africa, a Botswana-registered not-for-profit organisation that focuses on conservation and management of wildlife and wildlife habitats through applied science, education and sustainable development. The purpose of this partnership is to facilitate sustainability programmes for Xigera Safari Lodge in the Moremi Game Reserve of the Okavango Delta.

Community & Culture

Wild Entrust has been successfully working with the Habu community since 2014, running an integrated community development and conservation programme that aims to mitigate Human Wildlife Conflict and reduce bushmeat hunting in the area. The trust has been engaging primary school children to understand the value of conservation through play and sport for their future wellbeing. They also help alleviate income property amongst Habu’s women and out-of-school youth by establishing a women and youth cooperative to produce and sell high quality, organic vegetables for locals and the tourism industry, beginning with Xigera Safari Lodge.

Footprint

Everything at Xigera has been designed to leave the lightest possible footprint behind. The bulk of the energy required is supplied by renewable solar energy which is supported by a new state of the art Energy Centre. The lodge hopes that the photovolatic farm will in the future be able to charge electric game drive vehicles.

Food waste is all put through the onsite composter which is then used in the garden or sent to local communities. The lodge also removed all single use plastic from the lodges operations. All water used in the lodge is purified via a state-of-the-art reverse osmosis treatment plant. The water is then re-mineralised, ensuring guests can safely drink the tap water throughout the lodge.
