Zarafa is one of the most exclusive camps in Botswana with just four luxuriously appointed “marquee style” tented suites. With a maximum of eight guests the emphasis here is on individual hospitality, privacy and serenity. Each tented suite covers over 150m² and is positioned at the edge of the forest to emphasise the spectacular view over the floodplains and savannah. Each suite has a separate spacious bedroom, an en-suite bathroom with copper bath and shower, as well as a separate lounge and a large shady veranda.
In keeping with the marquee style of this camp, the main area of Zarafa is under canvas to enhance the glorious views of wildlife right in front of you. The whole camp is furnished in a “campaign” style, every piece of furniture having been designed and handcrafted specifically for the camp from recycled ancient hardwoods. Instead of one communal pool, Zarafa provides each suite with its own private plunge pool looking onto the plains.
Safaris at Zarafa are completely flexible and there is no set routine at the camp. Activities are arranged to suit guests’ particular interests and there are opportunities to explore the reserve by open vehicle and on foot in the early morning, late afternoon and at night. The midday siesta time can be spent at one of the waterholes near the camp in an elevated hide, and because Zarafa is located in the heart of a wonderful wildlife area, you may find the best game viewing could be from your own suite!
