Perfectly set under a canopy of ebony trees, the camp offers a luxurious main lounge fitted with a library, dining area and bush boutique. Adding to the element of luxury guests can enjoy yoga or workouts in the open-air gym or indulge in an in-room spa treatment. Each part of the camp is perfectly appointed to offer the best experience possible. Zarafa is an environmentally friendly destination featuring recycled hardwood flooring and canvas. The electricity comes from a solar farm and a bio-gas system converts vegetable waste into usable cooking gas.
The ultimate in carefree exploration, the canoes carry everything necessary for a comfortable camp, stopping wherever the fancy takes you to spend the night in a fly camp. Feast on fresh meals eaten around a blazing campfire and slip into peaceful slumber beneath a bright blanket of stars.
Enjoy languid days on the water, stopping to watch wildlife coming down to drink as you glide serenely downstream, or hopping out for a quick exploration whenever an interesting animal or plant catches the guide’s eagle eye. Please note that guests paddle their own canoes, so a reasonable amount of fitness is required. Due to water levels, this safari is only available between August and October.
The Selinda Reserve is one of Africa’s great wildlife reserves. Part of the Great Plains Conservation project, spearheaded by National Geographic photographers and filmmakers Derek and Beverley Joubert. Selinda borders Linyanti to the East and the Kwando reserve to the North. The Selinda Spillway is a usually dry channel that connects the Linyanti river system to the Okavango. On the rare occasion that these channels connect, Selinda springs to life with a game density that is hard to beat anywhere.
