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.

This Okavango Luxury Safari Camp offers a cool retreat from the African sun and is shaded by a canopy of indigenous trees.

Rooms & Suites:

11 En-suite luxury tents with thatched roofs set on raised wooden decks over looking the Xaxaba Lagoon. Each tent is equipped with individual gas geysers; "his & hers" vanity unit; a shaving mirror; hair dryer; fully stocked mini bar; a private viewing deck with hammock and easy chairs; electric overhead fan and lighting; electric heaters and air-conditioning; 110v/220v plugs and adaptors for electric razors, digital cameras and laptop computers are available for the tents. Each tent is also equipped with an internal telephone to reception and to other tents, an electronic in-room safe, and is equipped with a 24 hour electricity supply for your comfort and safety.

The Suite has all the amenities of our standard tents with the addition of: a private heated plunge pool, outside bathroom with bath tub, large deck area for private dining and your own personal guide for private game viewing excursions.

Food & Wine:

Early morning tea/coffee delivered to rooms at wake up, a light breakfast prior to the morning game drive/boat activity, and during the morning game drive, tea, coffee and biscuits.

On returning to Eagle Island Camp a full buffet brunch is offered followed by time to rest and relax.

A light tea will precede the afternoon game drive/boat activity during which wine, beer, soft drinks & snacks will be served at sundown.

The table d'hote dinner is served in the main dining area with a wine presentation.


During the months of April through October the camp offers a choice of game viewing by mokoro (traditional dugout canoe), motorized boats and sundowner barges to the surrounding lagoons. When water levels are low (December through March), morning, afternoon and evening game drives are offered in open 4x4 vehicles. Guided safari walks are offered all year around on the surrounding islands.

A helicopter gameviewing flight of 35 minutes is available to all guests at an additional cost.
