Hidden from the world, deep within Botswana's Okavango Delta, is the paradise we call Belmond Eagle Island Lodge. 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 the New York Times.
This Luxury Safari Lodge offers a refreshing retreat from the African sun and is shaded by a canopy of indigenous trees.
