Gold price level

Mango Opinion

A friendly staff and large family tents make this a great option for families wanting to experience the Okavango Delta. While this areas is not a top game spot, the camp does a great job with water based safaris and offering kids' programs. 

Seba Camp has been designed to blend in with an ancient riverine forest with majestic hardwood trees like the sycamore fig and leadwood, all overlooking a perennial lagoon with its prolific birdlife and resident pods of hippo. 

Eight luxury tents include two designed for families, with interconnecting bedrooms and plunge pools. Access the bush by game drive, mokoro or guided walks, or join your children for a bush cooking or photography lesson. There is a swimming pool for refreshing relaxation after a day of game drives. The dining and bar areas are set on a raised saligna deck with spectacular views. Gourmet meals are served, usually al fresco, in the dining area: five-star cuisine and superb dinners are followed by cocktails shared by guests, researchers and guides around a traditional campfire. Seba runs on various green operating systems, including 100% solar, to ensure as light an environmental footprint as possible.

Apart from the large elephant population, there is a seasonal abundance of game in the area including giraffe, zebra, impala, wildebeest, tsessebe and lechwe. Lion frequent the greater area and herds of buffalo are occasional visitors too. For bird enthusiasts, some 380 different species are found in the region. During winter, thanks to the high water levels, Seba is transformed into a water camp, with water-based activities taking precedence, such as mokoro, motorboat excursions and fishing, as well as walks and the usual game drives.
