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.

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.

Classic Camp

Seba is a year-round multi-activity camp with the emphasis on land activities in the summer months and both land and water activities during the annual inundation of the Delta waters in the winter months. It is a genuinely family-friendly safari destination.

Game Drives


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.

Night Drives

Exploring the concession by night yields fascinating sights of nocturnal animals including predators who often hunt under cover of darkness, from hyaena to owls.

Mokoro Excursions

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.

Boating

Water-level dependent, boating is another idyllic form of water wildlife viewing.

Nature Walks

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.

Fishing

Fishing is on offer seasonally on a catch-and-release basis. (Basic equipment is available at camp.)

Birding

The birding around Seba Camp is exceptional. Particularly exciting species include: malachite kingfisher, white-browed coucal, Luapula cisticola, pied kingfisher, rufous-bellied heron and great egret.

Kids' Activities

Entertaining activities led by dedicated staff encourage children to learn about and fall in love with wildlife and nature (of course adults can join in too!). These include basic photography and catch-and-release fishing for older children, while our younger guests can paint with natural bush powder-paints or make a scrapbook
