This remote, rustic, luxury retreat is a very special escape for those looking to discover Botswana’s many wonders.
Belmond Eagle Island Lodge offers guests a helicopter permanently on sight for wilderness exploring by air and the unique location of being set deep within the lush waterways of the Okavango Delta on Xaxaba Island.
The Delta is one of the world’s largest inland waterways, an oasis of life in the Kalahari Desert. As you can well imagine, the heli-tour of the delta from the camp is an awe-inspiring experience that offers the opportunity for fantastic photographs and gives you a true sense of the scale of this terrific expanse of water and life.
During your stay here you’ll be given a real taste of Africa at the Fish-Eagle Bar; watching the sun set over the Delta with a refreshing drink in hand. As with everything at the Belmond Eagle Island Lodge, the accommodation is sympathetically designed to be in keeping with the local surrounds, and your home will be a luxury tent raised on a wooden platform and shaded from the sun by a traditional thatch roof. After a long day’s exploring, your private deck will become a refuge to simply drink in the scenery or you can always take a dip in the Lodge pool.
Those looking to enhance the luxury safari experience still further can stay in the Lodge’s exclusive private suite; secluded and with its own splash pool.
