Seba Camp is located against the shores of a lagoon within the lush riverine forest at the heart of the Okavango Delta. Constructed as a family-friendly camp, Seba Camp offers parents the unique opportunity to introduce their children to the wonder of the African wild. Seba Camp is also the base of perhaps the most interesting elephant research project today.
The camp is named after Seba. As a baby, Seba starred in the Walt Disney movie, Whispers, that was filmed in the area. He and a number of elephants that were released back into the wild have now formed their own herd near Seba Camp.
The interaction between these and the wild elephant herds in the area provides rich fodder for research teams from Bristol University in the UK. Guests can observe the researchers at work, often in close proximity to the elephant herds.
The large elephant population aside, a seasonal abundance of game graces the area: giraffe, zebra, impala, wildebeest, tessebe and lechwe. Lion frequent the greater area and herds of buffalo are also occasional visitors to Seba Camp. Bird enthusiasts will be pleased to know that over 380 species are found in the region.
During winter Seba Camp is transformed into a water camp, with water-based activities taking precedence - such as moroko and motorboat excursions, including fishing as an option.
Overlooking a perennial lagoon with prolific birdlife and resident pods of hippo, Seba Camp has 8 well-appointed, spacious en-suite tents elevated from the ground - each celebrating one of the different tribes of Botswana through vibrant décor. Each tent has a private deck.
Well-lit paths lead to the communal dining area, bar and a lounge/library. As they are raised on a saligna deck, spectacular vistas greet guests in all these areas. There is a secluded swimming pool to refresh and relax in after game drives.
Seba Camp also has 2 family suites. These suites have 2 connected, en-suite double bedrooms as well as an upstairs lounge with a pull-out sleeper couch. There is ample space for children, including a built-in 'tree-house' and an elevated deck which has its own small swimming pool and sandpit.
