Part of the previously named “Orient Express” group, this lodge leans very heavily towards high standards of service perhaps rather than a safari experience, although that does not take anything away from its activities.

The lodge sits in stunning surroundings offering only water based activities, its position ensures privacy in an area that is quite bereft of lodges. Aside from the camp being part of a huge group of global tourism they have definitely managed to keep it an intimate affair and do do take advantage of their location beautifully.

Camp Environment

Eagle Island Lodge is situated on Xaxaba Island in the Okavango Delta surrounded by intricate waterways interspersed with hippo filled lagoons

The Okavango Delta is rightly considered one of the most incredible wilderness sanctuaries in Africa. It is the largest inland delta system in the world, an area of 15 000km2 filled with water channels, lagoons and islands. What makes this area truly remarkable is that it is a wetland paradise located deep within the arid Kalahari Desert.

Each year, floodwaters flow from their catchment areas in the moist central African highlands over 1 000km away into the Delta to create the miracle that is the Okavango. This unique area sustains a huge diversity of fauna and flora, so that game viewing is excellent right through the year.
