Belmond Das Cataratas

From the haunting beauty of the harsh dry deserts to the emerald green bushes that hug the banks of its life-giving rivers, the startling diversity of natural habitats and resultant variety of wildlife has ensured that Botswana remains one of Africa’s premier safari destinations.

Location: In the subtropical jungle of Iryapu, 15 minutes from the Iguazu Falls.

Rooms: 193 rooms and suites.

Facilities: Restaurant, bar, wifi in public areas, outdor swimming pool, spa, gym, sauna.

Activities: Trekking, horse riding, canopy tours (all in the jungle of Iryapu).

Children: Children of all ages are welcome.

Our Opinion: Great hotel in the middle of the jungle. Quirky fact: buildings connected through hanging bridges (if you don’t like them you can avoid them)!  Whilst 15 minutes away from the falls, we feel this is definitely the best hotel on the Brazilian side of the falls.
