    Thank you for sharing your wonderful pictures and description of Eagle Island. I have very happy memories of Eagle Island from my young days as a child in Botswana when it was called Xaxaba. I have since sent many clients there – it is, as you describe, a treasure and everyone loves it. Wonderful review. Thank you so much!
