Belmond Safaris operate two properties in the Delta. When combined with Savuti Elephant Camp these provide a broad mix of land and water camps.

These three lodges do however allow the traveller to experience three unique destinations within Botswana and can be combined with Belmond’s Mount Nelson in Cape Town to complete your African safari.

The lodge has a spa allowing guests relaxing alfresco treatments in the spa or on their own private decks, using local plant derived products.
