Seba Camp Information
- Lodge type; Safari Camp
- Location; Okavango Delta
- Lodge size; 8 Tented Suites
- Recommended stay; 3-7 nights
Seba Camp has been designed to blend in with an ancient riverine forest with majestic hardwood trees like the sycamore fig and Leadwood, all overlooking a perennial lagoon with its prolific birdlife and resident pods of hippo.
Seba Camp incorporates many features which make it welcoming to families with children. The family suite has two inter-leading, en-suite double bedrooms. There is ample space for children, including a built-in 'tree-house' for them.
An elevated deck has its own small swimming pool and sandpit. By the end of May 2009, there will be an additional family-style tent with two bedrooms, each with a bathroom, a private entrance and a connecting doorway.
Rooms and Suites
Seba has eight well-appointed and spacious elevated tents, each with an en-suite bathroom and a private deck on which to relax and observe the passing wildlife in and around the perennial lagoon.
The vibrant décor of each tent celebrates the various tribes of Botswana.
Cuisine and Wine
Gourmet meals are served, usually al fresco, in the dining area: five-star cuisine and superb dinners follow cocktails shared by guests, researchers and guides around a traditional campfire.
Well-lit paths lead to the communal dining area and a lounge library replete with reference and pictorial books.
There is a secluded swimming pool enabling guests to refresh themselves and relax after a game drive.
The dining and bar areas are set on a raised saligna deck with spectacular views.
The camp is named after Seba, one of the elephants historically released from nearby Abu Camp. As a baby, Seba starred in the Walt Disney movie, Whispers, which was filmed in the area. The word "Seba" means whisper in the language of Botswana.
A number of elephants that were released back into the wild have formed their own herd. The interaction between these and the wild 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 proximity to the elephant herds. Guides are always happy to drive visitors to see a released elephant and its wild companions when they are in the vicinity of the camp.
Apart from the large elephant population, there is a seasonal abundance of game in the area including giraffe, zebra, impala, wildebeest, tsessebe and lechwe. Lion frequent the greater area and herds of buffalo are occasional visitors too. For bird enthusiasts, some 380 different species are found in the region.
During winter, thanks to the high water levels, Seba is transformed into a water camp, with water-based activities taking precedences, such as mokoro, motorboat excursions and fishing, as well as walks and the usual game drives.
Seba Camp welcomes families with two (of the eight) tented suites designed for families, interconnecting bedrooms and plunge pools. As far as family activities are concerned, Seba offers up family safaris (game drives, mokoro or walking) options as well as bush cooking and photography lessons.
