      Zarafa Camp

      An Authentic Experience in Prime Wildlife Territory - The Zarafa Camp in Linyani Botswana Africa

      Zarafa Camp is located in the 320,000-acre Selinda Reserve. It embodies authenticity, luxury and simplicity to create a camp that has been clearly considered, and thoughtfully planned, to be as environmentally sensitive as possible. Zarafa Camp sits on an island in the floodplains of southern shores of the Zibadianja Lagoon, which is the source of the Savute Channel. Positioned in the extreme eastern side of the Selinda Reserve, its location is in prime wildlife territory. Each tent is positioned on the forest's edge, rimming the shores of the floodplains and far from a neighbor. The 1,000 square foot 'marquis-style' canvas tents are expansive and open-air without exposing guests to the elements. Each of the three "rooms" of the tent is decorated with custom-made furniture, handcrafted from recycled ancient hardwoods. The raised decks, constructed of recycled African railroad sleepers, form the tent's foundation. In keeping with the style of the guest tents, Zarafa’s main lounge is also under marquis-style canvas. A grand African ebony tree provides shade while the breeze off the lagoon cools the air. Furnished in the same style furniture, the lounge evokes a traditional safari ambiance with dark woods and rich leathers. This style continues in the private library, home to a collection of prized works on Africa. After a day's exploits in the Reserve, tales and stories are exchanged around the fire pit on the edge of the main verandah, with stargazing above. Meals include a light breakfast at dawn, a hearty brunch on return from the morning activity, afternoon tea and snacks before the afternoon activity, rounded off with a sumptuous dinner in the evening. There is a small gym with rowing machine, treadmill, free weights and yoga equipment. In-room massage is available (at additional cost). Each tent comes with its own Canon professional camera including a Canon 40D body and 35-135 mm and 100-400mm zoom lenses for use during a stay. Photos are then burned to a DVD as a souvenir at the end of your stay. On safari it is possible to see a tremendous diversity of species, from resident prides of lions to huge herds of elephants and packs of wild dogs. It is also home to the ungulates, from the rare roan to the ubiquitous zebra. Nocturnal wildlife is prolific as well, and there are frequent sightings of aardwolves and civets. Exploration of this vast area defies imagination... by foot, 4x4 open game drive vehicle, and pontoon boat.

        Off-Road Game Viewing

        In national parks and some other reserves, rules prohibit leaving the designated safari paths. But the wildlife are not always considerate enough to stay nearby. Get better vantages (and better photos) by heading off-road.
