Stay at Zarafa Camp

Zarafa Camp is renowned for its remarkable concentration of wildlife, predators in particular, and luxuriously appointed, quintessential tented accommodation.

Just four magnificent tented villas and a spectacular main area, all raised on decking to take advantage of views over the lagoon, reflect the desire for exclusivity and privacy which inspired Zarafa’s design. Its villa, the Dhow Suites, consist of two tents and private main area and operates entirely independently of main camp.

This intimate camp is located on the 333,000 acre Selinda Reserve in northern Botswana, an area linking the Okavango Delta and the Chobe/Savute corridors.

Few camps in Botswana can rival the location of this little gem, Botswana’s first and only Relais & Chateaux property. The camp itself overlooks the clear waters of Zibadianja Lagoon, the source of the famous Savute Channel, meaning every guest tent has a magnificent view. The lagoon also attracts a tremendous population of wildlife – with sightings of buffalo and elephant by the hundreds not uncommon.

Zarafa Camp is deemed to be one the best and most environmentally innovative camps on the continent. Only recycled hardwoods and canvas were used in the construction and all the camp’s electricity comes from its solar farm while ‘bio gas’ plants recycle waste into usable cooking gas.

The Pitchers

We had the most amazing time! John Barclay and his team were very special and the mobile safari exclusive and superb. Moremi was very quiet with few other tourists – no more than a dozen other vehicles seen in four days. Macatoo was also excellent with good riding and game. We were so grateful for the help that you offered when our BA flights went wrong. Many thanks again for the superb service and recommendations which made for a great holiday.
