An African Anthology is set to open a new lodge, Royal Delta Lodge, in the Okavango Delta, Botswana, between the Selinda and Vumbura River systems.
Planned to open on 1 March 2017, the new lodge will overlook a permanent lagoon and the open plains beyond, ensuring optimal game and bird viewing. Accommodation will consist of 10 canvas suites, including a family suite and two honeymoon suites, each with air-conditioning, a private swimming pool, fireplace, and en-suite bathrooms with outdoor shower.
Other facilities will include a library, gym, spa and a cocktail lounge opening up on to the swimming pool, with views of the Royal Delta lagoon. A butler service and golf cart transfers between suites and main areas will be available. A variety of dining experiences will include the sunken boma, themed rooms, in-room private dining, communal dining and bush dining.
The resident executive chef, pastry chef and sous chef will create meals of the best quality. Activities are set to include morning, afternoon and nighttime game drives, star gazing, boat cruises, mokoro trips, fishing and optional extra horseback safaris.
“The lodge may be accessed by light aircraft transfer to a private landing strip, which may be booked with the lodge directly. For guests who are photographically inclined, the lodge will offer a converted aircraft, specially designed for scenic photographic flights,” says An African Anthology Sales and Marketing Manager, Ruth Basset.
