Seba Camp, blending beautifully into an ancient riverine forest of majestic hardwood trees, is situated in the diverse and productive Abu Concession. Overlooking a perennial lagoon with prolific birdlife and resident pods of hippo, the camp has eight well-appointed elevated tents. Each spacious tent has an en-suite bathroom and a private deck with magnificent vistas.
Seba Camp has two family suites to accommodate groups of varying sizes. One has an open lounge on the upper deck while the other has a loft room suitable for older children or adults. There’s also an elevated deck with its own small swimming pool. Well-lit paths lead to the communal bar and dining area, a lounge-library and a secluded swimming pool to refresh and relax in after a game drive.
Conservation & Community
Seba has assisted in the investigation, in partnership with an array of institutions, into various management implications for the site including Human-Elephant Conflict and elephant impact on vegetation (University of Botswana, University of Witwatersrand, University of London).
Green Operating Systems
In keeping with Wilderness Safaris’ environmental commitment to operate with as light an environmental footprint as possible, Seba Camp is 100% solar powered. In addition, a wastewater treatment plant purifies and recycles all grey and black water used in the operation of the camp, ensuring that we do not contaminate the natural water system in the area. Earthworms in the camp’s worm farm break down organic waste from the kitchen and turn it into rich compost.
With a splendid diversity of habitat there are a multitude of species to encounter. The variety and numbers of animal and bird species allows us insights into some fascinating behaviour and compelling interactions. Our open Land Rovers accommodate a maximum of seven guests – thus allowing each person a ‘window’ seat.
Exploring the concession by night yields fascinating sights of nocturnal animals including predators who often hunt under cover of darkness, from hyaena to owls.
Glide silently through pristine waterways of the Okavango Delta in a mokoro (traditional-style dugout canoe) to gain a unique perspective on the diversity of life both big and small in this fascinating ecosystem. Water-level dependent, boating is another idyllic form of water wildlife viewing.
On request and dependent on the availability of a walking guide, nature walks with skilled, armed guides are a wonderful way of getting close to nature and observing the smaller things not always seen when travelling by vehicle.
Wildlife at Seba Camp
The Seba Camp area is known for its large elephant population. In addition, unlike the permanently inundated areas of the Okavango Delta, the habitats around Seba Camp vary greatly, allowing for an abundance of general game viewing, including giraffe, zebra, antelope such as impala, tsessebe, lechwe and wildebeest, and buffalo and warthog. Leopard are common, and hyaena and African wild dog are also regularly seen, while a number of lion have moved into the area, and can sometimes be heard roaring at night.
Seba Camp Reviews
“The entire staff at Seba camp makes you feel like a welcome friend; their service is personal and thoughtful. The food, beverages and guides are excellent. You can watch animals right from your cabin/tent’s deck or even as you lie in bed. Of the six safari camps we visited, this was the most remote – truly unique.” – Penne’ D
“The perfect camp. Rustic yet with a luxury touch. Great food, warm loving staff. Fantastic wildlife. Unique as it was more genuine than other camps we visited. The people of Botswana are wonderful and their attitude shines through at this special camp.” – 5travelpros
“The Okavango Delta is a unique wilderness and from Seba camp you’ll see it highlights. We rarely saw another vehicle (from the neighbouring Abu camp) so felt like the experience was entirely our own. It is large concession so plenty of bush paths to explore and time taken to track animals.” – chadpond
