Africa’s ultimate water-focused safari has recently reopened with a new look and feel, allowing guests to discover a unique and dramatic ecosystem in total luxury.

Nestled in Botswana’s lush Okavango Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the world’s largest inland water systems, Belmond Eagle Island Lodge reopens following a ten-month closure and almost total rebuild.

The changes add innovation and originality to the Okavango experience. Fresh new tented guest accommodation, dining areas and lounges reflect the region’s natural beauty and the adventures of early explorers.

Okavango Delta Safari - Luxury Botswana Safari

The Okavango Delta

Belmond Eagle Island Lodge enjoys a privileged position on a private island at the heart of the Okavango Delta. The only inland delta of its kind, it is an oasis of life in the centre of the Kalahari Desert.

The Okavango Delta stretches over 16,000km2 and supports a staggering variety of animal, plant, fish and birdlife.The area consists of endlessly changing channels, tributaries and lagoons as well as floodplains, islands and mainland areas. Helicopter safaris provide a birds-eye view of this magnificent landscape.


Luxury Botswana Safari

Each of the lodge’s spacious Deluxe Tented Rooms boasts its own plunge pool. A private deck provides the perfect space to soak up the scenery.

Flooded with daylight, the interior décor is elegant and light. The centrepiece of every tented room is an oversized bed with views of the delta. The uniquely designed, handmade copper-finish headboards reference Botswana’s mining tradition.

In-room amenities include a deep day bed, large desk, fully-stocked mini bar and discreet air conditioning. An en-suite bathroom features a walled outdoor shower with a window looking onto the delta, a large indoor bathtub and walk-in wardrobe.
