Eagle Island Camp

Eagle-Island-Camp-2

Hidden from the world, deep within Botswana’s Okavango Delta, is the safari paradise we call Eagle Island Camp by Orient-Express. Situated on the island of Xaxaba and surrounded by Illala Palms, Eagle Island Camp overlooks a lagoon fed by the tranquil waterways of the Delta. The area offers exceptionally high quality wildlife viewing with prolific birdlife and mammal sightings. Built to blend into its environment, the camps offer guests a peaceful setting perfect for enjoying the sights and sounds of the Okavango Delta. The magnificent sunsets can be enjoyed during times of high flood from the camp’s most romantic Fish Eagle Bar at Eagle Island or from the raised deck overlooking the lagoon.

All luxury tents are housed on raised wooden platforms, offering great views, and shaded by a traditional African thatch roof.

Cuisine

With incredible views cross the Okavango Delta and delicious food to match, the dining experience at Eagle Island Camp is one to remember. Dine in the open-air or under our covered area and watch the Botswana sun set across the waterlilly filled waters. After dinner enjoy the bar and lounge areas. Seated around our camp fire you can share stories of the days experiences with other guests or simply curl up and relax while the wildlife in the Delta does the same.

Facilities/Activities

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