When To Visit Okavango Delta:

Eagle Island Lodge is surrounded by waterways and lagoons so most activities are water-based; conventional game drives can only take place when water levels are low.

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.

Eagle Island Lodge 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.

The lodge sits in the shade of tall trees and overlooks a lagoon. Accommodation is in luxurious tents raised on wooden decks and with thatched roofs. They all have four-poster beds and en suite bathrooms, as well as a private deck outside where guests can enjoy the wonderful views of the surrounding lagoon and waterways. The private suite also has a plunge pool, an outdoor shower and a bath. There is a swimming pool in the main area, and an observation deck.

There is very little dry land near the camp, so all activities tend to be water-based and concentrate on enjoying the beautiful scenery, bird-watching and fishing. Outings are made on motorboats and mokoros (dug-out canoes), and guests can explore other islands on foot with an armed guide. Game drives are possible when the water levels are low enough.

"Located in the heart of the delta’s waterways, Eagle Island Lodge is a luxury picturesque property but one that suffers due to the 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."
