Excellent hotel. Fantastic service.

Eagle Island features 12 Deluxe Tented Rooms and is one of 3 Belmond Safaris in Botswana. The other 2 are The Khwai River Lodge which borders the Moreni National Reserve, just outside the North Gate and The Savute Elephant Camp is in the Southern area of the Chobe National Park.

All tented rooms are housed on raised wooden platforms shaded by a traditional African thatch roof. Complete with a rim flow plunge pool, large private decks furnished with easy chairs. Each room features an indoor, a walled outdoor shower with a window looking onto the Delta, as well as a large bathtub and walk-in wardrobe, private fully stocked mini bar, four poster bed complete with mosquito netting, as well as a discreet air conditioning. For your convenience, in-room safes are provided for the safekeeping of all cash, travel documents and other such articles.

Eagle Island Lodge has reopened as the ultimate Okavango Delta water & experience-focused safari lodge, unveiling a sleek new look after an almost total rebuild.

Eagle Island Lodge is one of Botswana's original safari lodges, perched on a private island encircled by some of the deepest stretches of the Okavango Delta, one of the world's largest inland water systems and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The lodge is decorated to reflect an explorer's base. Design highlights in the twelve spacious deluxe tented rooms include oversized beds with views of the delta, large outdoor decks with a vista, private plunge pools, luxurious bathrooms with large tubs, indoor & outdoor showers, a relaxation and reading nook, and walk-in wardrobes.

Fully rebuilt public areas include a stylish dining area with a pizza oven, a lounge area with an artisan-style bar, a library, a separate campfire area and the Fish Eagle Bar which is located directly on the water. Local artisans and materials were used throughout the renovations. The lodge offers a variety of essentially water-focused safari activities including motorboat safaris, barge cruises, mekoro safaris (a local canoe), fishing, as well as walking safaris and the ultimate air safari experience by helicopter – a highlight of any guests' stay!

There is an abundance of bird and aquatic wildlife around the lodge, complemented by larger mammals such as elephant, buffalo, hippo, crocodile, as well as the ever elusive big cats that have made this island their home.
