Okavango Delta, Botswana
Nestled on a private island right in the heart of the Okavango Delta, Belmond Eagle Island Lodge is clearly inspired by its unspoilt surroundings. We love the unique contrast between rustic, thatched architecture and sleek, modern interiors here.
There are 12 Deluxe Tented Rooms, all perched on the river bank and featuring their own private deck and plunge pool. The décor adds a contemporary touch to traditional African interiors, with a small writing desk, cosy bedding, and endless views. We love the little extra touches, especially the handmade copper finish headboards that are inspired by Botswana’s mining culture, and the pop of mustard yellow.
The main areas are just as stylish - the comfy lounge area, sophisticated bar and modern dining area offer classy spaces for socialising with other travellers. After a day of leisurely mekoro safaris and breath-taking private helicopter rides, the al fresco Fish Eagle Bar is the perfect spot for watching the sun setting over the never-ending floodplains.
