Zarafa Camp is a small, intimate tented safari camp situated on a palm island on the edge of Botswana's northern Linyanti Swamps. Close by is the lagoon after which the camp is named. There are panoramic views of open floodplains dotted with palms.
The Selinda private wildlife concession straddles the Selinda Spillway which is the only ephemeral waterway linking the Okavango to the Linyanti swamps. The area is rich in game and has the second highest concentration of elephant in Southern Africa.
Zarafa Camp is particularly well known for its hippo-killing lions, and healthy wild dog population, the open nature of the floodplains makes this an excellent area for cheetah viewing.
Zarafa Camp provides accommodation for six guests only. Each of the four twin-bedded, Meru style tents has en-suite facilities, solar lighting and heating.
The tents are built on raised wooden platforms with a fly sheet and shade net cover and offer bathrooms with fully integrated modern facilities.
Each tent has its own, small raised verandah.
Zarafa facilities include a mess dining and lounge tent, campfire and a fireside bar. There is a viewing deck with magnificent views over the plains. Open-air cuisine matches the finest to be found anywhere.
Activities at this Savute Safari Camp include game drives, in the early morning, afternoon and at night, allowing sightings of both day and night-time wildlife.
Short nature walks with an experienced guide are available as well. Also, guests may extend their stay to join the Selinda Walking Trail.
Siesta time at Zarafa is best spent in the sunken hide at the edge of the waterhole, watching the wide variety of plains game and predators that arrive to drink.
Wildlife includes elephant, zebra, giraffe, cheetah, wild dog, lion and an amazing amount of birdlife.
