okavango delta, botswana

Belmomd eagle island lodge, is a luxurious eco-sanctuary that brings guests magically close to the wildlife of Botswana’s UNESCO-recognised Okavango Delta.

The lodge has been designed as a place of discovery and wonder. Inspiring, relaxing spaces capture the spirit of the delta. A raft of initiatives makes it one of the most environmentally friendly safari lodges in the country.

Perched on a private island among the water channels are 12 luxury tented guestrooms.

All the tented rooms are housed on raised wooden platforms shaded by a traditional African thatch roof.

Each room features an indoor shower, a walled outdoor shower with a window looking onto the delta, as well as a large indoor bathtub and a walk-in wardrobe.

Rooms boast large private decks furnished with easy chairs and a plunge pool with views of the wetlands.

Flooded with light by day, indulgently cosy at night, each of the luxury tented rooms is carefully positioned to afford total privacy and sweeping vistas.

When the delta is in full flood, traditional mokoro canoe rides glide guests past hippos, kingfishers, and brightly coloured frogs. Motorised boat tours and sunset cruises are magical.

Exhilarating helicopter and horseback safaris offer the chance to pace past wild dogs and buffalo.

Guided nature walks reveal termite mounds and animal tracks.
