Review: Belmond Eagle Island Lodge, Botswana


Nestled on a private island in Botswana’s Okavango Delta, Belmond Eagle Island Lodge is a secluded getaway in one of the world’s most popular travel destinations.

Recently redesigned by The Gallery HBA, the Lodge offers 12 luxury-tented guestrooms, each equipped with a large terrace, plunge pool and modern design elements. The copper features and bold colour choices stand out in this contemporary yet rustic accommodation.

Our wish has been to give guests an insight into the soul of the Delta that they can marvel at while they are there and take away with them when they leave,” said Principal and Creative Director of The Gallery HBA, Inge Moore. “By using local artisans and materials, reinventing traditional safari camp paraphernalia and translating the natural world into the interiors, the design is crafted to fill the hearts and minds of both safari camp connoisseurs and newcomers alike.

Guests visiting the lodge can also enjoy a dining pavilion, retail area, the Fish Eagle Bar, a library, an internet lounge, and the in-house restaurant with an open style kitchen.
