Belmond and author McCall Smith to lead an exclusive safari through Botswana

Belmond Eagle Island Lodge, Botswana

March 15, 2016: Hotel chain, Belmond, has partnered with acclaimed author, Alexander McCall Smith, who is to lead its upcoming exclusive safari through Botswana.

To unfold November 10 – 16, 2016, the once-in-a-lifetime tour will take travelers to Belmond’s three luxury lodges in northern Botswana, the unique and diverse ecosystems of which have bloomed on the pages of Mr McCall Smith’s books. 

The safari will commence at Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge, tucked in the heart of Chobe National Park – the land of elephants. It will then carry on to Khwai River Lodge, which boasts ample opportunities for predator and large game viewing as well as for thrilling night rides. The journey through the African country will culminate at Belmond Eagle Island Lodge, perched on the Okavango Delta, where water-focused activities abound – from motorboat outings to barge cruises. 

Throughout the week-long adventure, attendants will have the chance to socialize with Mr McCall Smith, whose beloved novels The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency and Double Comfort Safari Club among others drew inspiration from majestic Botswana. 

More information about the safari – priced at close to $8,000 per person – is available on Belmond’s website.
