|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.
The area offers exceptionally high quality wildlife viewing with prolific birdlife and mammal sightings. It is also the site of one of the most romantic bars in the world, the Fish Eagle Bar, as voted by New York Times.
The camp offers a cool retreat from the African sun and is shaded by a canopy of indigenous trees.
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.
ll 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.
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.
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.
A 'Naturally Wild' range of exclusive services have been designed to enhance your experiences at the luxury camps – these include private scenic game-viewing flights over the miraculous Okavango Delta, private excursions to secret islands, intimate romantic dinners on your own tent deck and indulgent massages and body wraps surrounded by the pristine Botswana wilderness.
