This was the last of five lodges we visited in the delta to generate ideas for the building of our own lodge. It was one of the more traditional designs, i.e. with thatch roof in the central facility with very thick very heavy looking black walls. The bedroom units were upscale tents under thatch roofs also with black walls in...

Gorgeous cocktail table books are available to peruse while taking in the view of the Delta. Each room has its own plunge pool, along with two enormous upholstered chaises, and...

Reviewed 11 January 2016

We went to Eagle Island as a family of four for 2 wonderful nights. The attention to detail throughout the newly rebuild lodge was spectacular. Our days were spent driving through beautiful flood plains (we were there when the delta is dried up), having amazing animal sightings, and enjoying incredible views. Our time at the lodge was equally as fantastic....

My daughter and I stayed here for two nights. It was a wonderful experience. The accommodation was luxurious, the food was good, the staff very friendly and the game drives were everything we hoped for. The sunsets viewed from the deck of the Fish Eagle Bar were sensational. Will definitely stay here again.

It is a struggle to put into words how like a beautiful dream our visit here was. Eagle Island is first class from top to bottom. We cannot single out any one person or feature because all of the team and the features were a marvel. The people, service food, wines, guided safari expeditions were stupendous. We loved the attention...
