Description

Belmond Eagle Island Lodge

Okavango Delta

Belmond Eagle Island Lodge has been perfectly located and built on an island within the Okavango Delta under a grove of Ebony trees’.  The thatched main area is expansive boasting a dining area, a bar in the middle of the space and down some steps a comfortable lounge area. The views from each space over Chief’s Island are sensational.

A small sand strip leads past the fire area to the Fish Eagle Bar which is a fantastic location for sun downer drinks. Beyond this is the boat jetty. During the annual flooding of the Okavango from April to September, the area around the lodge is completely dominated by the waters and activities focus on motor boats and mokoro’s. Birding during the floods is excellent. As the waters recede so game drives and vehicles take over.

Accommodation

Eagle Island’s 11 luxury tents are raised on wooden platforms under cooling thatched roofs. Suites are very spacious and considering the decor and amenities they are well appointed leaving guests wanting for nothing. King-size beds and mosquito netting, a mini bar with cocktail shaker and mixing kit, hairdryers, safe, WiFi and air conditioning. The large en-suite bathroom comes complete with dressing room, bath, and indoor and outdoor showers, and plenty of toiletries.

All the suites have a large deck under thatch and overlooking the lagoon. Chairs, a coffee table, sun-loungers and a private infinity plunge pool.
