Mokoro canoe safari
Glide silently on a traditional dugout canoe, a mode of transport used by locals for centuries. Explore the shallow, clear waters, drifting past brilliant waterlilies and papyrus grasses, reaching areas inaccessible by boat. Witness brightly coloured frogs, kingfishers, dragonflies or elephants feasting on the reeds.
Helicopter flights over Botswana are one of life’s big adventures. Experience the Okavango Delta as you have never seen it before. Spot remote, inaccessible lakes and islands as well as an abundance of wildlife from the sky.
Horseback and heli-safari
A first in Northern Botswana, this exhilarating safari begins at first light with a 10-minute helicopter flight. Then saddle up for a guided horseback ride through the delta. Move quietly past wild dog, elephant, buffalo, hippo and zebra in their natural habitat. Horse riding experience is essential.
Motorized boating and barge cruises
The chance to explore open waters is a unique feature of an Okavango Delta safari. Cover more ground and delve deeper into the landscape, with a chance to spot an even greater range of wildlife. Embark on a sunset barge cruise for hypnotic views as you sip a sundowner. Available during the wet season, usually May to October.
Let our experienced guides take you on a trek to experience the true spirit of Botswana. Spot amazing sights close-up, from dazzling insects and swarming termite mounts to animal tracks. These small, unexpected aspects of delta life often make the biggest impression.
People head to Belmond Eagle Island Lodge from all across the globe, purely to spot the region’s magnificent variety of birds. Over 400 species make for unrivalled viewing. Keep an eye out for the rare Pel’s fishing owl, endangered wattled crane and the majestic African fish eagle.
The delta’s channels are rich with tilapia, while spotted and silver catfish can be found in the many lazy pools. African pike, infamous fighters, are a favourite snare. If you have never fished before, the Okavango Delta is the ultimate place to start. Please note: catch and release fishing only.
