Belmond Eagle Island Lodge offers a range of safari activities that invite you to discover the resident wildlife of the Delta - including big cats, elephant, hippo and crocodiles. The birdlife is also prolific, with African fish eagle, Pel’s fishing owl and wattled crane just some of the 400 recorded species. Gliding gently through the reeds on a mokoro canoe safari is an unforgettable experience, or you can get closer to nature on a walking safari. Enjoy an aerial perspective on a scenic helicopter flight over the waterways and remote islands of the Okavango Delta. After the thrill of spotting wildlife from the air, experienced riders can saddle up and ride amongst the wildlife, a great and exhilarating way to explore the Delta. For a slower-paced wildlife encounter, simply relax on the private deck and watch the animals pass through the lodge.
Belmond Eagle Island Lodge is perfect for romance with its dreamy location overlooking the water channels of the enchanting Okavango Delta. Romantic gourmet picnics in the wilderness, mokoro canoe safaris to magical sunset spots, and private dining under the stars – what’s not to love?
