This property had by far my favourite accommodation rooms of our Africa Trip. It is a permanent structure, but from the inside looks like a canvas tent with super high ceilings, dining space, deck with private infinity pool. However, the safari game drive didnt have a spotter and it made such a difference. The driver was then looking for animals...

We stayed two nights at Belmond Eagle Island our third safari lodge. Recently reburbished and definitely the most luxurious amazing tent I have ever stayed in. The food and service was very good. Activities included land drives, motor boat cruises and mokoro canoe excursions. A small third world problem of the Internet only working in the gift shop.

Excellent location to see the swamps from the comfort of your lounger or from a specially designed speed boat with a knowledgeable guide. Get up close to nature. Very good photo opportunities. The rooms are luxurious and well appointed. Great service and food.

I am in love with this lodge, Eagle Island Camp. It's the grownup sister to Belomd's Khwai River Lodge, but not the twin sister. Khaki was nice, too, very nice. This lodge is located further into the Okavango Delta and the climate, although only a mere thirty minute plane ride, is considerably hotter and there's less of a cross breeze....

We had a great time at Eagle Island Lodge. Onx and team were fantastic. Rooms could not have been nicer and the bar is by far the best in the world. Food was out of this world. The guides were very informative, Moses was the best and he was very funny as well.
