    Eagle Island is expensive, even at SADC rates, but this is Botswana, the Okovango, and it's a Belmond property. Not the RyanAir, Carnival Cruise circuit. And, as such, it is superb, all inclusive, worth every Pula. The only additional cost might be the helicopter flights...More

    Hello, We plan to come in December (10 to 12) to your lodge. I would like to know if at that time, there will be enough water to do Mokoro? What is the current trend in the delta, quite dry or you still have some water? Thanks in advance for your feedback and advise. Kind Regards, Fabien
