Zarafa Camp: Our View
Zarafa Camp is situated in the 135.000 ha Selinda concession and overlooks the Zarafa Lagoon in the eastern part of the Selinda Reserve in Northern Botswana. The camp is located close to the Savute Lagoon and source of the channel, within sight of hippos and crocodiles in and near the surrounding water, as well as being home to a huge variety of birds.
Zarafa Camp is very exclusive and caters for just eight guests, ensuring each guest enjoys first class hospitality and privacy. The large walk-in tents are built on raised wooden platforms and have adjoining bathrooms with full facilities. The dining area at Zarafa Camp is in a large open-sided central tent (weather permitting) and the bar is set out in the open air around a tree. There are wonderful panoramic views from all areas of the camp.
Activities include game drives in the early morning, afternoon and at night, with good chances of sightings of day and night active wildlife. There are also short nature walks on offer with an experienced guide. Boat rides are on offer, but seasonal and water level dependent. Siesta time 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.
