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 luxurious secluded accommodations overlooking a perennial lagoon teeming with birdlife and resident pods of hippo. Shaded by grand sycamore and leadwood trees, the camp's eight spacious, well-appointed tents are elevated off the ground and carefully designed to blend in with the surrounding landscape. Each celebrates one of the different tribes of Botswana through vibrant decor. Each tent has an en suite bathroom and private deck where guests can relax and observe the wildlife passing through and around the lagoon. The dining and bar areas are also built on raised teak decking to offer magnificent views. A swimming pool is a welcome feature for cooling off during the hotter months.
In addition to a large elephant population, an abundance of game thrives 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.
