    7Hidden from the world, deep within Botswana’s Okavango Delta, is the safari paradise of Eagle Island Camp by Orient-Express Safaris.

    Situated on the island of Xaxaba and surrounded by Illala Palms, the camp overlooks a lagoon fed by the tranquil waterways of the Okavanga Delta. Built to blend into its environment, the camp is required to maintain a minimal footprint on the island and is entirely built above the surface of the island on timber decks with no masonry work permitted.

    Some of the facilities include an al fresco dining area overlooking the waters edge, a bar on a private island, and a library, curio shop and swimming pool.

    Accommodation is provided by eleven luxury tents on raised wooden platforms, offering great views, and shaded by a traditional African thatch roof.
