The heat is on at Seba Camp and guests have swapped hot water bottles for the swimming pool. Summer seems to have arrived in the last two weeks and as the water levels continue to drop, the vehicles are able to access previously no go areas – providing guests with some wonderful wildlife sightings. The elephants are plentiful and large herds are migrating towards the camp – moving through it on a nightly basis. Leopard sightings have also been good and staff have noticed female tracks around the camp – although she has not been spotted yet. There has also been an abundance of general game in the area with regular sightings of lechwe, giraffe, kudu, impala and tsessebe.+
Seba Camp is a luxury Botswana safari camp situated in the south western side of the Okavango Delta. The camp has five luxurious rooms – one of which is a family room with a toy box, sand pit and private swimming pool. The camp has no age limit for children – which is rather unusual for a camp in Botswana. Seba offers a variety of activities including game drives, walking safaris, elephant back safaris and water based activities like canoeing and boating.
The Okavango Delta is the worlds largest inland Delta – a maze of watery channels and palm fringed islands that are inhabited by the largest concentration of wildlife in Botswana. The Delta, that was once part of an ancient lake, is produced by seasonal flooding. The high temperatures result in rapid evaporation resulting in a cycle of rising and falling water levels. It is a permanent and seasonal home to species such as elephant, hippo, buffalo, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, zebra, baboon, warthog, hyena. Kudu, antelope and rhino. There are 70 species of fish and 350 species of bird.
