Safari Lifestyles View

 

Part of the previously named "Orient Express" group, this lodge leans very heavily towards high standards of service perhaps rather than a safari experience, although that does not take anything away from its activities.

 

The lodge sits in stunning surroundings offering only water based activities, its position ensures privacy in an area that is quite bereft of lodges. Aside from the camp being part of a huge group of global tourism they have definitely managed to keep it an intimate affair and do do take advantage of their location beautifully.

Room Description

All luxury rooms are housed on raised wooden platforms, offering magnificent views, and shaded by a traditional African thatch roof.

 

The large private decks are furnished with easy chairs and a hammock, ideal for viewing wildlife, or for enjoying a private dinner in complete privacy, just the stars in the heaven above.

Private Suite

Eagle Island Lodge has an exclusive private suite, perfect for a more intimate safari experience. The naturally stunning private suite with a spacious secluded deck area is set away from the other tents in the camp.

 

The extended viewing deck has two relaxing sun loungers, perfect for basking in the warm African sun. To the side, a generous heated splash pool which is set amongst the trees for shade and privacy, yet with full views of the Delta allows one to wallow in communion with the hippos whilst spotting elephant and crocodiles on the island banks.

Camp Environment

 

Eagle Island Lodge is situated on Xaxaba Island in the Okavango Delta surrounded by intricate waterways interspersed with hippo filled lagoons

 

The Okavango Delta is rightly considered one of the most incredible wilderness sanctuaries in Africa. It is the largest inland delta system in the world, an area of 15 000km2 filled with water channels, lagoons and islands. What makes this area truly remarkable is that it is a wetland paradise located deep within the arid Kalahari Desert.

 

Each year, floodwaters flow from their catchment areas in the moist central African highlands over 1 000km away into the Delta to create the miracle that is the Okavango. This unique area sustains a huge diversity of fauna and flora, so that game viewing is excellent right through the year.
