Zarafa Camp overlooks the Zibadianja Lagoon, the source of the world-famous Savute Channel. The camp evokes a sense of old-style safari with its four large, luxuriously appointed double or twin 'marquis style' tents. Hosting a maximum of eight guests, the emphasis at Zarafa Camp is on offering a personalised and private experience to guests - perfect if you favour a more intimate experience or an entire camp to yourself.
Built on a palm island, in a sea of floodplain savannah, Zarafa puts the emphasis on intimate hospitality in the tradition of a bygone safari era.
There are four huge and stunning tented rooms with views onto the Zibadianja Lagoon and, unusually, each room is kitted out with a professional camera with lenses and a pair of binoculars. At the end of their stay guests will be presented with a USB drive of the images they have been able to capture.
The thatch bar and viewing deck are great for spotting wildlife whilst meals are taken in the warmth of the well appointed "mess tent". Siesta time can also be spent in the sunken hide at the waterhole’s edge. The Selinda Reserve is host to a wide variety bird species (300+) and wildlife including hippo, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, cheetah, wild dog, lion, plenty of elephant and several species of antelope. Night drives allow guests to see nocturnal species such as porcupine, spring-hare, hyaena and perhaps even the elusive leopard.
