Trip Summary

Stay 3-nights at Belmond Eagle Island Lodge, Africa’s ultimate water-focused safari and discover a modern, sophisticated sanctuary on a private island at the heart of the Okavango Delta.

Belmond Eagle Island Lodge brings timeless luxury to the Botswana wetlands. High-ceilinged tented rooms flood with light; each has a plunge pool and oversized bed with views of the Delta. Get closer to the wildlife of this UNESCO World Heritage Site—silently glide past hippos in a traditional canoe as fish eagles soar overhead.

Just 12 large, light-flooded tented rooms make up the total accommodation of this intimate retreat. Each is carefully positioned to afford total privacy—and unspoiled Botswana vistas. Shelter from the midday heat for a cool siesta, or soak in your private plunge pool. Take to the terrace for a front row seat and watch the theatre of the savannah unfold.

Belmond Eagle Island Experiences:

Glide silently on a traditional dugout canoe, a mode of transport used by locals for centuries. Explore the shallow, clear waters, drifting past brilliant waterlilies and papyrus grasses, reaching areas inaccessible by boat. Witness brightly coloured frogs, kingfishers, dragonflies or elephants feasting on the reeds.

The chance to explore open waters is a unique feature of an Okavango Delta safari. Cover more ground and delve deeper into the landscape, with a chance to spot an even greater range of wildlife. Embark on a sunset barge cruise for hypnotic views as you sip a sundowner. Available during the wet season, usually May to October.

Visit neighbouring Nxhoga village for an authentic insight into the Botswana way of life. Learn about hut building, basket weaving and the fishing industry. Meet elders, chat with the children, and browse the small market, churches and bakery.

Let our experienced guides take you on a trek to experience the true spirit of Botswana. Spot amazing sights close-up, from dazzling insects and swarming termite mounts to animal tracks. These small, unexpected aspects of delta life often make the biggest impression.

People head to Belmond Eagle Island Lodge from all across the globe, purely to spot the region’s magnificent variety of birds. Over 400 species make for unrivalled viewing. Keep an eye out for the rare Pel’s fishing owl, endangered wattled crane and the majestic African fish eagle.

The delta’s channels are rich with tilapia, while spotted and silver catfish can be found in the many lazy pools. African pike, infamous fighters, are a favourite snare. If you have never fished before, the Okavango Delta is the ultimate place to start. Please note: catch and release fishing only.

Relax beside your private plunge pool, watch the wildlife from your balcony, or perhaps opt for a game of chess. Spectacular sunsets are guaranteed at the Fish Eagle Bar. Keep an eye out for our ‘resident’ elephant, who loves the berries in our trees. In the evening, gather round the fire pit and share stories with our guides.
