Overview

Perched on a private island in the Okavango Delta, Belmond Eagle Island Lodge has been rebuilt to add originality to the superb water-based safari experience it offers. 12 spacious canvas, wood and thatch suites are contemporary, with touches of a bygone explorer age. Each boasts deep day beds and glass sliding doors which lead out to large decks and private plunge pools. The lodge has a fabulous wow factor with quality finishes and obvious attention to detail. Fluid lines mimic the Delta’s meandering channels. Greys, blues and copper tones reflect the earth, animals and setting sun, and the thatched roof resembles a traditional tribal fishing net. Copper butterflies and weavers’ nest lamp-shades add to the decorative appeal of the central spaces. Stunning panoramas may be appreciated from the split-level lounge with its fireplace, open-plan kitchen and pizza oven. An exquisitely romantic bar overlooks the Boro Lagoon. Surrounded by deep channels, the lodge’s activities (walks, boat and mokoro safaris – depending on water levels) ensure guests have the opportunity to view the regions game and prolific birdlife. Game drives, mokoro building demos, and village visits are also available. At Belmond Eagle Island Lodge there is a welcome flexibility with regards to meals and activities. Air-conditioning runs between 04h00 and 23h00.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
