overview

Enjoy a unique Okavango Delta safari at Belmond Eagle Island Camp, an exclusive water-based camp situated on the island of Xaxaba, where illala palms line the lagoon and winding delta waterways. The camp provides a tranquil and romantic setting, making it the ideal honeymoon getaway.

Belmond Eagle Island Camp hosts a diverse wildlife population, and is home to almost 400 different bird species. Experience these excellent game-viewing opportunities on guided bush walks, traditional mokoro (dug-out canoe) safaris, and even spectacular helicopter safaris over the Delta's winding waterways.

The 12 deluxe tented rooms have over-sized beds with views of the wetlands, private plunge pools, reading nooks, and both indoor and outdoor showers. The communal areas include the romantic Fish Eagle Bar, another 'artisan-style' bar and a traditional pizza oven that delivers up arguably the best pizzas in the Delta.

Traveller Reviews

  • We were extremely lucky at Khwai River Lodge to see two leopards that had been chased up a tree by a pack of wild dogs. After about 20 minutes, they came back down and passed about 1 metre from my side of the open-sided safari vehicle. Was amazing.

    Heather Willis, April 2014
  • Eagle Island - managers of this camp deserve a special mention - they run this camp like clockwork. Everything was so slick and professional , but very friendly and personal. Attention to detail and pleasing their guests was obviously a number one priority. Every time we came back from an outing we were met by 1 or 2 staff with cold flannels and a huge welcome home. The food here was fantastic. A fabulous camp.

    Debby Redman, May 2013
  • The best parts of our trip was Eagle Island Camp, everything about it.

    Corrine Tashnek, October 2009
  • It was interesting to see the Okavanga Delta. The delta was flooded which made for a real interesting habitat. However, there were few animals, and the safari routines were not that interesting. The camp was very comfortable, with good food, and a great bar for sundowners (written up by the New York Times as one of the top ten most romantic bars!). While we were there, an elephant got into the camp which made it interesting to move between our tent and the lodge - we enjoyed that.

    Terry McPhail, November 2008
  • A truly magical place - we had tent 12 which is the furthest from the main camp and were able to relax in the hammock on the deck watching the fish eagles come and go from their nests on the island opposite us. The tents, food, drink and main lodge were all excellent.

    Jeff Stanford, October 2008
  • We wouldn't have changed a thing. It was perfect. Very friendly staff with accomodations being nearly unbelievable! The individual suites blended in so perfectly with their surroundings but also had great air conditioning, making the experience the best of all worlds.

    Kelly Anderson, July 2008
  • It was good. A great place to end. They don't keep you as busy as Mala Mala and it would NOT be a good place to start off but fine place to end. It is luxurious for sure.
