Eagle Island Camp

Eagle Island Camp

Eagle Island Camp in Botswana’s iconic Okavango Delta offers an extremely luxurious safari experience. No details have been overlooked in maximizing the potential of the Okavango Delta and remote Xaxaba Island. The camp is surrounded by a web of waterways and lush vegetation. It overlooks a wonderful lagoon that attracts a fantastic variety of big game and exotic birds.

Accommodation at Eagle Camp is eleven twin-bedded, en-suite thatched tents and one private suite. The tents are on raised decks with views over the lagoon. The decks have easy chairs and a hammock for relaxing or dining, as the mood takes you. The tents have a fully stocked mini bar, four poster bed with mosquito netting, and air conditioning.

The private suite is more luxurious than the standard tents and is set apart for a more intimate experience. It has an extended viewing deck with two relaxing sun loungers as well as a heated splash pool under the trees. It offers full views of the delta, and it is not uncommon to spot elephant and crocodile on the island banks. The suite has open-air showers and a beautiful copper-framed Victorian bath with the tree canopy for a roof! As an added bonus, guests who book the suite have the opportunity to enjoy game-viewing in a private vehicle with their own personal guide who will tailor the safari to their desires.

The main camp has many amenities including a satellite phone, a 20-meter swimming pool, a curio shop, a high powered telescope for star gazing, same-day laundry service, and a private airstrip and helicopter landing pad.

Dining at Eagle Island Camp is as delicious as the views are magnificent. The kitchen offers something for everyone all day and will also be glad to prepare picnics for you to take on a game drive.

In this part of the Okavango, some activities are at the mercy of the water levels. Game drives are most probable during the months of November through March, when water levels are lower. Unique walking safaris are always available. Birdwatching is always a highlight, whether from your tent’s veranda or from a boat on the water. With nearly 400 bird species, the delta offers world class birding and includes prized species such as Pel's fishing-owl, black coucal, long-toed plover, brown fire finch, and African fish eagle.

Additional activities include a spectacular 45-minute scenic helicopter flight above the delta, special photographic expeditions into the bush, and fishing excursions onto the river for tilapia, pike, and catfish.
