Belmond Eagle Island Lodge | Xaxaba Island, Okavango Delta, Botswana

    Luxury Bush Lodges 

    Operator: Belmond
    No. of Keys / Area: 11 Keys
    Completed: 2005
    Type of Project: Luxury Safari Lodge

    Hidden from the world, deep within Botswana’s Okavango Delta, is the safari paradise of Eagle Island Camp by Belmond Safaris (formerly 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 Okavango 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 water’s 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.
