One of the best known travel brands in the world, Belmond (formerly Orient Express) operate luxury hotels, safari lodges, train services and river cruises. Belmond Safaris have operated in northern Botswana for more than 25 years, offering an upmarket and luxurious safari experience.
With three lodges in Botswana, Belmond Safaris is one of the smaller safari outfitters in the country. Belmond Safaris operate two properties in the Delta and one in Savute, Chobe, when combined these provide a broad mix of land and water camps and allow the traveller to experience three unique destinations within Botswana. Extending the trip with a visit to Belmond’s iconic Mount Nelson in Cape Town completes the safari experience.
Belmond has a more traditional atmosphere and their lodges are larger and have a more permanent style than most in Botswana. These are substantial lodges, almost hotel in experience, and they are one of the few lodges in the Okavango to offer air-conditioning. The lodges have a less intimate feel, dining is private and not communal for example, but the service and experience is very good and suitable for those looking for a more robust and traditional safari lodge.
