Zarafa Camp left the Good Safari Guide Awards with a whole host of new titles including, Best Safari Property in Southern Africa, Best Ecological Safari Property Runner Up and Best Overall Safari Property in Africa!
Zarafa is one of the most exclusive Botswana safari camps and it’s easy to see why it picked up so many awards! There are four luxurious tents meaning the maximum number of guests here at any one time is just eight. The focus here is really on the personable and hospitable service you’ll receive and the private, tranquil safari experience.
Your activities will be arranged around your own interests and the days are entirely flexible. The camp is set on a private wildlife area on the floodplains on of the Selinda Spillway and there’s a lot to see in such a fantastic wildlife area. Elephant, wild dog, antelope, hyena, lion, cheetah and leopard are all seen frequently. If you’re a birding enthusiast there are lots of water birds to be seen on the Zibadianja Lagoon – also home to hippo and crocs! You’ll be able to explore the area by pontoon boat, on foot and in one of the camp’s specially designed 4×4 vehicles. There’s no doubt that your safari will be filled with superb wildlife sightings and many great photo opportunities! (This camp caters particularly well for keen photographers with specially adapted vehicles, guides knowledgeable in the photography field and specialist equipment.)
Accommodation at Zarafa is second to none. Each of the spacious, marquee-style tents has wonderful views and its own private plunge pool too. The suites comprise a vast bedroom, en-suite bathroom and a separate lounge. Every piece of furniture has been handcrafted especially for the camp and is made from recycled ancient hardwoods.
With so much to see and do, fascinating wildlife, impeccable service and superb accommodation, Zarafa provides the safari experience of a lifetime.
