Africa’s ultimate water-focused safari

Discover a modern, sophisticated sanctuary on a private island at the heart of the Okavango Delta Eagle Island Lodge brings timeless luxury to the Botswana wetlands. High-ceilinged tented rooms flood with light; each has a plunge pool and oversized bed with views of the Delta. Get closer to the wildlife of this UNESCO World Heritage Site—silently glide past hippos in a traditional canoe as fish eagles soar overhead.

Just 12 large, light-flooded tented rooms make up the total accommodation of this intimate retreat. Each is carefully positioned to afford total privacy—and unspoiled Botswana vistas. Shelter from the midday heat for a cool siesta, or soak in your private plunge pool. Take to the terrace for a front row seat and watch the theatre of the savannah unfold.

Relax beside your private plunge pool, watch the wildlife from your balcony, or perhaps opt for a game of chess. Spectacular sunsets are guaranteed at the Fish Eagle Bar. Keep an eye out for our ‘resident’ elephant, who loves the berries in our trees. In the evening, gather round the fire pit and share stories with our guides.

Activities include Mokoro (dig our canoe) excursions into the Delta’s waters, helicopter flights (additional cost), motorised boat & barge trips, walking safaris and horse-back safaris. Bird watching here is phenomenal.
