Belmond Eagle Island Lodge

Okavango, Botswana


Belmond Eagle Island Lodge has reopened as the ultimate Okavango Delta water- & experience-focused safari lodge, unveiling a sleek new look after an almost total rebuild. Belmond Eagle Island Lodge is one of Botswana’s original safari lodges, perched on a private island encircled by some of the deepest stretches of the Okavango Delta, one of the world's largest inland water systems and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Situated on the remote island of Xaxaba, shaded by a canopy of indigenous trees and ilala palms, Belmond Eagle Island Lodge overlooks a surrounding lagoon fed by the tranquil waterways of the delta.
Map co-ordinates: -19.544967, 23.050184


The lodge is decorated to reflect an explorer’s base. Design highlights in the twelve-spacious deluxe tented rooms include oversized beds with views of the delta, large outdoor decks with a vista, private plunge pools, luxurious bathrooms with large tubs, indoor & outdoor showers, a relaxation and reading nook, and walk-in wardrobes.

Fully rebuilt public areas include a stylish dining area with a pizza oven, a lounge area with an artisan-style bar, a library, a separate campfire area and the Fish Eagle Bar which is located directly on the water.


  • There is an abundance of bird and aquatic wildlife around the lodge. 
  • The lodge offers a variety of essentially water-focused safari activities including motorboat safaris, barge cruises, mekoro safaris & helicopter safaris.
  • Take your seat, savour the scenery, and anticipate an out-of-this-world dining experience.
  • Private dining - Enjoy superb cuisine, fine wine and discreet service with a romantic dinner beneath the star-studded African sky, served on the deck of your room.
