OKAVANGO DELTA - BOTSWANA

ULTIMATE SAFARI
SEBA CAMP - OKAVANGO DELTA

Seba Camp - Tented Safari Camp in the Okovango Delta - www.classicencounters.com

Seba Camp is set in an ancient riverine forest in the heart of Botswana's magical Okavango Delta, offers secluded, luxurious accommodation overlooking a seasonal floodplain and lagoon teeming with animal and bird life. Guests can enjoy more than game viewing, however, the camp is a base for unique research on elephant behaviour and a centre for wildlife filmmakers.

Seba Camp itself has five well-appointed and spacious elevated tents, designed specifically to blend in with the Okavango landscape. Each has its own en-suite bathroom and a private deck on which to relax and observe the passing panoply of wildlife in and around the perennial lagoon. The dining and bar areas are also set on a raised saligna deck with spectacular views. Trained guides are ready to advise on all aspects of the Okavango ecosystems in this, one of Africa's last remaining true wilderness areas.

There is an abundance of seasonal game in the area including giraffe, zebra, impala, wildebeest, tsessebe and lechwe. A pride of lion frequents the greater area and their thrilling calls can sometimes be heard in the evenings. Large herds of buffalo are seasonal visitors, too. For bird enthusiasts, some 380 different species are found in the region.
