Eagle Island Lodge

Eagle Island Lodge is a sumptuous retreat style safari lodge set deep within the Okavango Delta on picturesque Xaxaba Island, one of the first and finest sites selected for photographic safaris in the Delta. The emphasis is on the slower safari, a break from the game drives and instead enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the Okavango from the waters and on foot.

Eagle Island Lodge represents an incredible re-imagining of the safari experience, fusing modern design with some of the most iconic aspects of a traditional safari camp. Known for their supremely comfortable lodges, Belmond Safaris have drawn on their considerable experience to craft tents with great attention and detail. The elegant main building continues in this line and the camp is sure to build on Belmond Safaris reputation.

The camp’s 12 luxurious tented rooms are built on raised wooden platforms offering incredible views over the floodplains from a cocoon of comfort. These incredible tents are shaded by traditional African thatch roofs which, in concert with discreet air conditioning, provide respite during the heat of the day. Expansive decks with private plunge pools provide the perfect space from which to watch the birds and animals of this unique ecosystem.

Diverse activities are on offer at Eagle Island Lodge and include walking safaris with professional guides allow guests to get closer to nature and appreciate the oft overlooked species of the delta. On the waters of the Okavango Delta canoe trips and motor boat excursions explore this fascinating environment. Additionally guests can visit Xaxaba village and see a traditional Okavango village at work and play, as local people adapt ancient traditions to modern life. Other activities (at an additional cost) include helicopter flights and horse back riding(experienced riders only). The emphasis is on the slower safari, a break from the game drives and instead enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the Okavango from the waters and on foot.

Operated by Belmond Safaris (previously Orient Express Safaris), this camp places particular emphasis on guest comfort and a stay here works well in combination with a land focussed lodge with game drives.
