Okavango Delta, Botswana
Seba Camp is set in an ancient riverine forest in the heart of Botswana's Okavango Delta. It is named for an elephant called Seba, whose historic release from nearby Abu Camp was a memorable event in the region. As a baby, Seba starred in the Walt Disney movie Whispers, which was filmed in the area. The word "seba" means "whisper" in the local language.
Seba Camp offers secluded, luxurious accommodations overlooking a lagoon teeming with animal and bird life and shaded by majestic sycamore and leadwood trees. The camp accommodates 16 guests in eight well-appointed and spacious elevated tents, carefully designed to blend in with the surrounding landscape. Each has its own en suite bathroom and private deck on which to relax and observe the passing panoply of wildlife in and around the perennial lagoon. The dining and bar areas are also built on a raised teak deck and offer spectacular views. A swimming pool is a welcome feature for guests who wish to cool off during the hotter months.
In addition to the large elephant population, there is an abundance of game in the area including giraffe, zebra, impala, wildebeest, tsessebe and lechwe. An exceptionally large pride of lions has taken up residence nearby, and their thrilling roars often rend the night air. Large herds of buffalo are frequent visitors, too. For bird enthusiasts, some 380 species are found in the region. Camp activities include day and night game drives, guided walks, boat rides, and mokoro (dugout canoe) excursions.
