Belmond is offering an unforgettable safari experience to guests at its luxury lodges in Botswana, one of the world’s last great wilderness areas. With the Discover Botswana with Belmond offer, those booking four nights or more* in July, August and September will be treated to a complimentary 35-minute helicopter safari from Belmond Eagle Island Lodge, followed by a secluded picnic in the bush and fishing excursion.
Belmond Khwai River Lodge in the Moremi Reserve; Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge in Chobe National Park; and Belmond Eagle Island Lodge in the Okavango Delta are remote retreats perfectly positioned for exploring Botswana’s breathtaking contrasts and untamed beauty. Each offers a refreshing swimming pool, incredible cuisine and luxury tents with private viewing decks.
July, August and September are exceptional times to visit Botswana, as the weather warms up and growing herds become easier to spot in the bare bush. In July, the floods arrive in the Okavango Delta and animals congregate near the water and floodplains, while in August adventurers may be in for some thrilling game viewing as crowding near the water causes tension between breeding herds of elephants. September still sees high levels of elephant and buffalo as water levels slowly begin to drop.
A helicopter flight over Botswana is a true adventure, soaring overhead as animals roam freely in their natural habitat below. Guests will then enjoy a secluded picnic in the bush and go fishing for bream, talapia and tiger fish, before returning to the lodge by motorised boat.
‘Discover Botswana with Belmond’ is subject to availability and terms and conditions apply. *Booking must include at least one night at Belmond Eagle Island Lodge. To book or for more information, call 0845 0772 222 or visit belmond.com.
