We Love
  • Seba Camp is the base for one of the most interesting studies being conducted on elephants. After five riding elephants (with collars) from nearby Abu Camp were released into the Okavango Delta, they have provided a wealth of material for a research project undertaken by University of Bristol, UK.
  • The Camp has year-round multi-activity with the emphasis on land activities in the summer months and on water activities in times of high flood during the winter months.
Need to Know
  • Children of 6 years and older are accommodated.
  • The minimum age for walking activities is 13 years.
  • Electricity is provided by the use of a generator and inverter/battery system.

The Review

The camp is named after Seba, one of the elephants historically released from nearby Abu Camp. 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. Activities include day and night game drives, seasonal fishing and mokoro excursions on the waterways.

Wildlife
Plains game is abundant in the area in the summer months before and after the annual winter flood: from giraffe, zebra, elephant, impala, tsessebe and lechwe to wildebeest, buffalo and warthog. The camp’s territorial pride of lion often announces its presence; the calls sometimes heard echoing late into the evenings. There is an abundance of birdlife found in the area and with over 380 species found in the region, Seba Camp is a haven for bird enthusiasts.

Why Stay
Overlooking a perennial lagoon with prolific birdlife and visiting pods of hippo, Seba Camp has eight well-appointed, spacious tents elevated from the ground - each celebrating one of the different tribes of Botswana through vibrant décor. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom and a private deck with magnificent vistas of the perennial lagoon and the host of wildlife passing by.

It has two family suites to accommodate groups of varying sizes. One has an upstairs lounge with a pull-out sleeper couch, while the other has a loft room suitable for older children or adults. There’s also an elevated deck which has its own small swimming pool and sandpit.

Experience
The large elephant population aside, a seasonal abundance of game graces the area: giraffe, zebra, impala, wildebeest, tessebe and lechwe. Lion frequent the greater area and herds of buffalo are also occasional visitors to Seba Camp. Bird enthusiasts will be pleased to know that over 380 species are found in the region.

During winter Seba Camp is transformed into a water camp, with water-based activities taking precedence - such as mokoro and motorboat excursions, including fishing as an option.

Getting There

The Seba Camp is located in private Abu Concession at the Western end of the Okavango Delta. Maun is the gateway to the Okavango Delta and is accessed by a short 30 min flight on a light aircraft. The flight from Kasane takes one hour and 30 mins. There is a luggage restriction on this flight of 10kg (22lbs) per person, soft sided luggage.
