The Beautiful Seba Camp
- Enquire Now
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, private entrance and a connecting doorway.
Rooms & Suites:
It has 8 well-appointed and spacious elevated tents, each with 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 different tribes of Botswana.
Food & 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 camp-fire.
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 also 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, that 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 close 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 precedence, such as mokoro, motorboat excursions and fishing, as well as walks and the usual game drives.
