We stayed at Eagle Island Lodge with our 3 children for 3 nights. Upon arrival, we were immediately blown away by the warm welcome from the staff and the unique modern twist on the lodge decor. The colours and patterns evoke all the animals and their habitats that you will experience on safari. The rooms are beyond luxurious, with a private plunge pool and oval bathtub in each room! The most amazing aspect, however, is the location of the lodge...right on the Okavango River. While game drives are an option, we chose instead to spend every day on the water, whether by motor boat, pontoon boat, mokoro (canoe) and loved every minute. The wildlife was plentiful and there were numerous opportunities for very close encounters thanks to our wonderful guide, Goms. This is definitely the jewels of the Delta and should not be left off of ANY itinerary!

Though Covid has greatly affected most tourists companies in Botswana, Belmond Eagle Island Lodge opened its doors for me and my partner basically meaning that we had the entire lodge to ourselves for 3 days. Straight from being picked up by Moses (our trusted guide) at the Airport we were welcomed with drinks and a light lunch for the journey ahead. On welcome to the lodge and for the duration of our stay, the staff were warm, highly attentive, informative, professional and bloody amazing. It takes a lot to keep staff motivated however, Belmond has been able to keep its staff happy and this is evident in their behavior. Food was amazing,generous and it always something new. They even organized a private3 course dinner in our tent one night. Moses was amazing and helped us spot two leopards in less than an hour during an evening drive(id never seen a leopard before in my life) and we also found a pride of 12 lions one morning. Tilly, Loedwyk(his new name is Uyapo) we’re attentive and never too far away , Rati and Madiga also took care of us and we enjoyed quite a number of laughs tigger. The Chef was highly accommodating and on two occasions made us chocolate cake and eggs Benedict even though they weren’t on the menu. Our Mekoro guide(Phillip) allowed me to take some of the most amazing photos. All I can say is, as a Motswana who got to experience a safari for the first time, I am really proud of this establishment and the standards it is maintaining in Botswana. Hopefully I can visit again when the floods return. Thank you.

This was our 3rd Belmond camp in Botswana and whilst the hotel itself is stunning it still ran a second to the Savute Elephant Camp. Unfortunately during our stay there was a severe draught so the guides had to adapt, but they did this well, with some great drives. Again, like everywhere we saw in Botswana the landscape was stunning and we had some amazing sunsets. Our guide was good and persevered during drives and ultimately we were rewarded....it was a great way to end our holiday and I suspect we may return one day in the wet season.

Dear Turkeymil, Thank you very much for taking the time to review all three our lodges. We are truly delighted to hear that you had such a wonderful safari experience and that you were so well taken care of by our guides and despite visiting us in our drier season, you were rewarded with wonderful wildlife sightings. We are looking forward to welcome you back again soon to experience the Okavangao Delta in full flood, as it has been this season, the Delta water levels has bene the highest it's been in years! Warm regards Louise

Wonderful welcome; fabulous accommodation; lovely food and lovely people. The guide was amazing and we saw the 'big Five' but the fish eagles and the hippos were the real stars! We overlooked the river but the landscape in the wet season would be totally different. Must go again.

Dear franleaper, Thank you for your wonderful feedback! We are so happy that you managed to see the big five, that is just fantastic! If you love hippos and fish eagles, then the watery season is going to be such a treat for you as the Okavango Delta transforms into a water wonderland. We believe that the rainfall in the Angola area has been plentiful and that we will see the floodwaters reach our lodge allowing for a complete water safari experience for our guests. We do hope to see you again soon. Warmest regards Louise

We spent 3nights at the Eagle Island Lodge and it was perfect! The staff make you feel like you are part of the family and our Game Driver, Goms, was phenomenal. The accommodation was luxurious with a handmade touch, the food was delicious and the game viewing was spectacular. We would highly recommend the Eagle Island Lodge!
