About Seba Camp
Seba Camp, blending beautifully into the ancient riverine forest of majestic hardwood trees, is situated in the diverse and productive Abu Concession. Overlooking a perennial lagoon with prolific birdlife and visiting pods of hippo, the camp has eight well-appointed, spacious tents elevated from the ground, each with an en-suite bathroom and a private deck with magnificent vistas.
Each tent celebrates the different ethnic groups of Botswana through vibrant décor, while the main area including dining area, bar and lounge-library is set on a raised saligna deck with floodplain views. There is ample space for children in the purpose built family suites including a built-in tree-house and an elevated deck which has its own small swimming pool and sandpit.
This camp can accommodate 16 guests and 4 children. There are eight tented rooms, two of which are family units. Each of the tented rooms are raised on deck with sandy walkways to the ground. One family unit can sleep a maximum of six people, and the other a maximum of 5. Each family unit has its own private plunge pool, toys and game selection for the children and two bathrooms. They each consist of two rooms, with their own bathroom and entrance, separated by a broad walk and sharing a deck. The family units are very well-equipped to cater for children with bath, board games, sand pits and private plunge pools.
Plains game is abundant in the area in the summer months before and after the annual winter flood: from giraffe, zebra, elephant, impala, tsessebe and lechwe to wildebeest, buffalo and warthog. The camp’s territorial pride of lion often announces its presence; the calls sometimes heard echoing late into the evenings. There is an abundance of bird-life found in the area and with over 380 species found in the region, Seba Camp is a haven for bird enthusiasts.
