AndBeyond Belmond Eagle Island Lodge Exterior View
Belmond Eagle Island Lodge offers the ultimate luxury on safari in the heart of Botswana’s Okavango Delta. It offers a water-focused safari experience in the heart of Eagle Island in a big game location with 12 tented suites each with a plunge pool. Belmond Eagle Island Lodge is set on a private island at the heart of Botswana’s Okavango Delta, the world’s largest inland delta and home to a bewildering array of habitat and wildlife. The entire lodge was closed over the greater part of 2015 to enjoy a full rebuild, new guest tents and communal areas have been designed to soak in the natural light and enhance the views out over the delta scenery. Each guest tent is spacious and light; guests have the luxury of a private plunge pool to cool off during the heat of the day. A clever and discreet air conditioning system quietly keeps you cool at night and each tent features a stocked mini bar, en-suite bathroom with outdoor shower and large indoor bath. The bar and sitting area are set to maximise the views over the watery wilderness and the legendary Fish Eagle bar is the perfect spot for sundowners. Meals tend to be taken al fresco, weather permitting, and the fire-pit is the communal focus before and after dinner, a great spot for star-gazing. Read More...
