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.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again
