A sophisticated safari haven
Discover a contemporary, sophisticated safari haven on the private island of Xaxaba in the heart of the Okavango Delta at Belmond Eagle Island Lodge. Established in the 1900s, the lodge has refined safari living to an art. It is considered one of the most environmentally friendly lodges in Botswana, and their private outings are a truly intimate way to get closer to the country’s natural beauty.
Stay at Belmond Eagle Island Lodge and uncover endless activities around the area. Embark on hair-raising early morning or afternoon game drives in search of an array of wildlife or opt for a night drive with stargazing presentations. Drift peacefully on a traditional mokoro along the pristine waterways, visit the neighboring Nxhoga village for an authentic insight into the Botswana way and marvel at the spectacular landscape and roaming wildlife from a unique perspective on a thrilling open door helicopter ride over the Delta.
The lodge is home to only 12 large, light-flooded tented rooms, making it an intimate escape. Each is delicately positioned to afford total privacy and boast unspoiled Botswana views. Unwind in the calming gray interior, complemented by flashes of deep gold. Alternatively, spread out on the large bed, framed by a dazzling copper headboard. Perhaps the biggest highlight, each tented room comes with its own plunge pool and private deck, perfect for soaking up the scenery or a midday nap.
