General information

Hidden from the world, deep within Botswana's Okavango Delta, is the paradise called Eagle Island Camp. Situated on the island of Xaxaba and surrounded by
Illala Palms, the camp overlooks a surrounding lagoon fed by the tranquil waterways of the Delta. Shaded by a canopy of indigenous trees, this 12 luxury tented camp is set raised on wooden platforms, offering great views. The striking natural beauty and remote tranquility truly make it an indulgent paradise.

Eagle Island Camp’s serene watery base lends itself to quiet relaxation, contemplation and reflection. If, however, you are looking for adventure and excitement then Eagle Island will not disappoint – from walking safaris on surrounding islands, where there is always the possibility of a close encounter, to mokoro and motor boat excursions around the myriad of waterways, the diversity and propensity of the wildlife will fascinate the most seasoned of travelers to Africa. During the months of November through March, when lower water levels make it possible to drive in open 4x4 vehicles off the island, guests can also enjoy the combined excitement of a game drive with water activity.

The area offers exceptionally high quality game viewing, with prolific bird life and animal sightings. It is also home to one of the most romantic bars in the world,
the Fish Eagle Bar, as voted by the New York Times. The magnificent sunsets can be enjoyed from the Bar, or from the raised deck overlooking the lagoon.

Location

Situated on the island of Xaxaba and surrounded by Illala Palms, the camp overlooks a lagoon fed by the tranquil waterways of the Delta.

Activities

From April through October the camp offers a choice of game viewing by mokoro or in motorised boats, combined with walks on the surrounding islands. Late afternoon romantic sundowner cruises are offered on the surrounding lagoon. When water levels are low (December through April) game drives are offered. For the more adventurous, safari walks are offered all year round. Helicopter excursions are also available all year round to the more remote parts of the Okavango Delta. These excursions, if shared, are usually combined with either a boat or vehicle activity depending on the time of year. Private game viewing activities and private dining experiences are also available. Fishing excursions are also offered in season on a catch and release basis.

Rooms

All 12 luxury tents are housed on raised wooden platforms, offering great views, and shaded by a traditional African thatch roof. The large private decks are furnished with easy chairs and a hammock, ideal for viewing wildlife, or for enjoying a private dinner in complete privacy. The tent interiors are luxuriously appointed with such comforts as an en suite bathroom, private fully stocked mini bar, four poster beds complete with mosquito netting, as well as a discreet air conditioning.

Okavango Delta

The Okavango Delta is one of the world's largest inland water systems, the only inland delta of its kind and a unique oasis of life in the centre of the Kalahari Desert. It stretches over 16,000 square km and supports a staggering variety of animal, plant, fish and birdlife.
