Hidden from the world, deep within Botswana's Okavango Delta, is the paradise we call Eagle Island Camp. Situated on the island of Xaxaba and surrounded by Illala Palms, the camp overlooks a lagoon fed by the tranquil waterways of the Delta. 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 Xaxaba is one of the 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, the camps afford guests with 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 are shaded by a traditional African thatch roof. The large private decks are furnished with easy chairs and a hammock which are ideal for viewing wildlife or for enjoying a private dinner. 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.
Eagle Island Camp has an exclusive private suite, perfect for a more intimate safari experience. The naturally stunning private suite with a spacious secluded deck area is set away from the other tents in the camp. The extended viewing deck has two relaxing sun loungers, perfect for basking in the warm African sun. To the side, a generous heated splash pool which is set amongst the trees for shade and privacy, yet with full views of the Delta allows one to wallow in communion with the hippos whilst spotting elephant and crocodiles on the island banks. The open air double showers and beautiful deep copper-framed Victorian bath, with only the tree canopy as a roof, offers further opportunities to commune with nature. Choose an elegant candle-lit dinner on the private outdoor deck (additional rates apply). Among the many other suite indulgences available in the suite include temperature controlled rooms, a well-stocked mini bar, oversized fluffy bathrobes, big soft bath sheets, cozy slippers and luxurious bathroom toiletries.
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 the covered area and watch the Botswana sun set across the waterlilly filled waters. After dinner enjoy the bar and lounge areas. Enjoy bush breakfasts or dinner, afternoon tea, and sundowners with canapés. In the evening, seated around the 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.
Helicopter safaris, canoe safaris, game drives, walking safaris, and village life experiences are all available at Eagle Island Camp.
