About 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 Zarafaâs design.
Construction took eco-friendly principles to new levels of excellence and focussed on recycling, with repurposed teak railroad sleepers for flooring and furniture made from mahogany washed up in the 2005 tsunami, commissioned in an effort to give Indonesians affected by the disaster much-needed work.
The result is a safari camp like no other, and one that you will quickly fall in love with and want to return to, time and again.
On the far eastern edge of the private 320,000-acre Selinda Reserve in northern Botswana.
How to get there
Daily flights from Maun, Botswana to Selinda airfield are offered on reputable scheduled safari carriers. The flights are about 45minutes from Maun, both timings based Cessna caravan crafts. On arrival, a Zarafa ranger picks you up at the airstrip for a 45 minute transfer to camp with game viewing en route. Private air charters to Zarafa Camp for family groups are also popular and available on request.
When to go
The best time to visit Botswana is from May to September, during the Dry season and winter, resulting in more moderate temperatures. In addition, the Okavango is flooded from June to October.
