Belmond Eagle Island Lodge

Okavango Delta, Botswana

About Belmond Eagle Island Lodge

One of the most exquisite Okavango Delta Lodges, Belmond Eagle Island Lodge adds an ultra-luxurious spin to lavish bush living.

Situated on Xaxaba Island, a private island in the heart of the Okavango Delta, Belmond Eagle Island Lodge is surrounded by majestic water channels just waiting to be explored. With an abundance of water sources, all of which attract plenty of game for guests to view directly from the lodge, activities at Belmond Eagle Island Lodge are predominantly water-based.

Twelve spacious rooms blend wooden structures and canvas features with exquisite finishings to create a space of sanctuary in the African bush. Each room comes complete with a private plunge pool and offers incredible views of the delta.

With such magnificent levels of opulence, Belmond Eagle Island Lodge may not be the best option for travellers seeking a rustic, more authentic safari experience, but for those looking to enjoy all of life’s finer pleasures in one of the world’s most incredible settings, Belmond Eagle Island Lodge is the ultimate indulgence.

Why We Love Belmond Eagle Island Lodge

  • One of the most captivating experiences in the Okavango Delta is Belmond Eagle Island Lodge’s helicopter ride and horseback safari, although, riders must have previous experience.
  • Should a spark of creativity hit, don’t fear, Belmond Eagle Island Lodge’s relaxation area is well-stocked with paints and an easel for artistic travellers to use as soon as inspiration hits.
  • Due to the abundance of water in the area, game drives are largely dependant on the seasons and are not always available. Guests can still explore the bush on foot with a wonderful guided walking safari.
