eagle island lodge botswana


Established in the 1900s when explorers first flocked to the Delta, Belmond Eagle Island Lodge has refined safari living to a fine art. Nestled in one of Botswana’s most beautiful locations, this water-focused safari retreat is surrounded by a myriad of wildlife. The Delta’s seemingly endless network of channels, tributaries, lagoons and islands provides a treasure trove of things to explore, and the lodge offers so many ways to do just that: explore the region by local canoe, roam on foot or take to the air in an exhilarating helicopter flight.

As of the most environmentally friendly lodges in Botswana, it offers unparalleled access to the country’s natural wonders. The Okavango Delta is rich in elephants, hippos, crocodiles and giraffe as well as hundreds of bird species and from every angle you’ll have uninterrupted panoramic views so you don’t miss a thing.


This lodge takes safari to a whole new level. Done a game drive or walking safari? No problem. Belmond Eagle Island Lodge is revolutionizing how its guests view wildlife, offering the chance to soar above the Delta at sunrise via helicopter before touching down and continuing the journey on horseback. And, with such a fantastic location, it’s only natural that they encourage guests onto the water on a mokoro (traditional canoe) safari: drift along peacefully and catch sight of giraffe and antelope drinking at the edges.

Refuel post-safari with some of the delicious dishes curated by the lodge’s skilled chefs. The menus celebrate locally sourced produce and traditional cuisine which you can enjoy overlooking the surrounding lagoon or alfresco beside the fire pit.
