Botswana / Okavango Delta / Eagle Island Camp
Eagle Island Camp


Eagle Island Camp is a luxury safari camp situated deep within Botswana's Okavango Delta on the island of Xaxaba. The camp is surrounded by Illala Palms and overlooks a lagoon fed by the tranquil waterways of the Delta.

Eagle Island Camp is one of the Okavango Delta's most pristine natural locations, a region of myriad waterways, palm-tree covered islands and vast flood plains. Built to blend into its environment, Eagle Island Camp affords guests with a peaceful setting perfect for enjoying the sights and sounds of the Okavango Delta.

All 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 bed complete with mosquito netting, as well as a discreet air conditioning.

The private suite at Eagle Island Camp offers the ultimate in exclusive safari accommodation complete with a private plunge pool and his and hers outdoor showers.

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 our open 4x4 vehicles off the island, guests can also enjoy the combined excitement of a game drive with water activity.

Eagle Island Camp offers game viewing activities in the morning and late afternoons. Bird and game viewing is done either from motorised boats or mokoro (traditional dugout canoes), which are poled along effortlessly and quietly through the clear waters of the Okavango.

We also offer all guests at Eagle Island Camp a rate-inclusive 45 minute scenic helicopter flight of the magnificent game-rich Okavango Delta as part of our range of exclusive activities. Other services offered, at an aditional charge, include private excursions to secret islands and intimate romantic dinners on your own tent deck.
