Africa’s ultimate water-focused safari has recently reopened with a new look and feel, allowing guests to discover a unique and dramatic ecosystem in total luxury.
Hidden from the world, deep within Botswana’s Okavango Delta this lodge is located on one of the Delta’s most pristine natural locations with a myriad of waterways, palm-treed islands, and vast flood plains. Ideal for simply relaxing in a beautiful area, Eagle Island Lodge offers you the chance to experience some beautiful tranquillity in a quiet and mildly wild corner of the Delta.
Between November and December the water levels are low enough for you to experience the surrounding areas in game vehicles. April through to October is best for water activities and although game is harder to find, the birdlife is magnificent during this time of the year.
Each of the luxury air conditioned tents are housed on raised wooden platforms, offering great 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. The tent interiors are luxuriously appointed with such comforts as an en suite bathroom and a four poster bed complete with mosquito netting.
Each of the lodge’s spacious Deluxe Tented Rooms now boasts its own plunge pool.
