Belmond Grand Tour of Southern Africa

Belmond Grand Tour of Southern Africa

Belmond’s African escapes encompass an iconic Cape Town hotel and three safari experiences in Botswana.

At Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel, life is all about relaxation. Laze in the heated pools surrounded by gardens, enjoy imaginative cuisine in the acclaimed restaurants or hone your skills in an art class.

Belmond’s three safari lodges are set in the unspoilt wilderness of northern Botswana. This is where the Okavango Delta floods each year, attracting an incredibly diverse variety of wildlife.

At Belmond Eagle Island Lodge, completely rebuilt and designed as an explorer’s base, you can drift through the watery landscape on a mokoro canoe.

Elephants are, not surprisingly, the main attraction at recently relaunched Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge, located in the Chobe National Park.

At Belmond Khwai River Lodge in Moremi Reserve, espy giraffe, buffalo, lion, leopard and wild dogs from the lodge’s rooms overlooking the floodplains.
