Nights 1 & 2: Seba Camp
8 days/7 nights
Seba Camp blends beautifully into the ancient riverine forest of majestic hardwood trees – predominantly sycamore fig, magosteen and leadwood, against which it is built. 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.Nights 3 to 5: Savuti Camp
With the Savuti Channel becoming a flowing waterway again in 2008 (previously dry since 1980), the Camp gives its visitors a front row seat to all of the action as the wildlife adapt to the new source of water. Enjoy nature’s dramas from the camp's thatched dining area or large viewing area with fire pit that extends outward on raised wooden decks, providing a wonderful view.Nights 6 & 7: Toka Leya Camp
Overlooking the mighty Zambezi River and some of its islands is Toka Leya Camp, consisting of 12 spacious en-suite safari-style tents. Wooden walkways snake between the units and main area, limiting our footprint on this pristine area.
A few more reasons why you've gotta go...
1. Have you ever had a rock balancing contest? Balancing rocks is a national symbol of Botswana.
2. With approximately 11 cubic kilometers of water spreading over the 6,000-15,000 km² area each year, the Okavango Delta was declared one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa
3. Many different species live in the Okavango Delta, including the African Wild Dog. These endangered hunting dogs are some of the fastest animals on the planet and their unique “painted” coats are not to be missed on this adventure.
