Eagle Island Camp
On the of the Okavango Delta’s first photographic camps was built on Xaxaba Island, very close to where Eagle Island Camp is situated today, surrounded by lagoons, floodplains and waterways. It was called Xaxaba Camp. Chris, from Expert Africa, first visited it over 20 years ago, and although the camp has changed immeasurably, the surrounding landscape – which is ‘classic’ Okavango – is still just as beautiful.
Our view of Eagle Island Camp
Eagle Island Camp feels more like a lodge than a camp; and it’s much more substantial and imposing on the environment than many of the Delta’s other lodges and camps – so it’s not a natural choice for those who are seeking a place to stay in sympathy with its environment. That said, it is a very solid, well-built option – and so if you’re concerned about being in the ‘wilds’, and want the reassurance of a very solid camp, perhaps this is the right one for you.
Eagle Island Camp has 11 luxury tented rooms overlooking a lagoon.
