When To Visit Okavango Delta:
"Located in the heart of the Delta’s waterways, Eagle Island Camp is a luxury picturesque property but one that suffers due to the low concentration of game in the area. Its argument is the fact it offers a quintessential water experience, but we look for more in the camps we use."

OVERVIEW:

Belmond Eagle Island Lodge is larger and more imposing than many other camps and lodges in the Delta. In some ways it is more like a hotel than a camp, with extra touches like a mini bar, an internal phone system and air conditioning. While this may appeal to some people, it is definitely not a place for anyone looking for an authentic safari in a camp that blends in with the landscape.

It is situated on the remote Xaxaba Island in the south-east of the Okavango Delta. It, along with its sister camps, Belmond Khwai River Lodge and Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge.
