Seba Camp

Seba Camp | Okavango Delta, Botswana

Seba Camp

Seba Camp enjoys a secluded location in the remote southwestern corner of the Okavango Delta. Small and intimate, this 8 bed camp offers a wonderfully relaxed environment.

Seba Camp is one of the most remote camps in the Okavango. It enjoys a secluded location on the edge of a lagoon in the forested southwest of the Delta, a region that offers reliably good game-viewing.

Though it is part of the Wilderness Safaris portfolio - Wilderness are one of southern Africa's best luxury safari operators - Seba is at first glance a fairly unassuming safari camp, totally lacking in pomp. It's comfortably small, with just eight tents, a lovely open-air lounge, and a plunge pool.

Game-viewing at Seba is always terrific. There's an emphasis on water-based activities, particularly between May and October, though 4x4 game drives and walking safaris are also offered. Seba is the centre for an elephant research initiative, pioneered by camp manager Randall Jay Moore, which studies elephant behaviour. Elephant sightings in this region of the Delta are particularly good, and at the right time of year you can observe the elephant researchers at their work.

Seba is a permanent camp that remains open throughout the year.

Accommodation

Just eight tents, built on elevated wooden platforms set amongst the trees on the edge of the lagoon. Seba Camp's tents are lovely inside, with polished wooden floors carpeted in rugs, supremely comfortable double beds, carved wooden furniture and plenty of storage space. Each has been individually furnished, though they share a similar layout and are much the same size (with the exception of the family units – see below). They have large en-suite bathrooms, with slate flooring and sunken showers with hot and cold running water.

At the front of each unit is a private deck, where you can sit quietly with a drink and watch the wildlife in the lagoon.

Two of the tents at Seba Camp are family suites. These have two bedrooms each, a built-in tree house, and a private deck with a swimming pool and sandpit.

Dining

Meals at Seba Camp are served overlooking the lagoon, either in the raised dining area or on the banks below.

There's usually a light breakfast in the morning, followed by a delicious buffet brunch on your return from the morning's game activity. Dinner is a three course meal served around a communal dining table.

Child Policy

There is no age limit at Seba, unlike most camps in the Okavango Delta. The family units are beautiful, and the staff very helpful (always happy to prepare alternative children's menus, for instance), making Seba an easy camp to recommend to families travelling with children. Families with young children, however, should note that the camp is remote and unfenced.
