Zarafa Camp is on the eastern side of Selinda Reserve in northern Botswana. Featuring luxurious tents, this little gem in Botswana is the only Relais & Chateaux property in the country. This region of Botswana links the Okavango Delta with the Chobe and Savute corridors. The camp affords stunningly beautiful views over the crystal waters of the Zibadianja Lagoon which is the source of the famous Savute Channel.

This boutique style tented camp only features four beautiful tents, therefore, ensuring privacy, tranquillity and extraordinary wildlife experience. The luxury tents provide an approximate 100 square meter space under canvas which excludes the deck and the private plunge pools. Beige, flowing canvas with canopy ceilings and open, netted sides characterise the tents. Each tent provides a well-appointed lounge with desk and gas fireplace for cosy winter days.

The spacious bedroom connects to an open bathroom with an impressive copper claw foot bath, indoor shower, and separate loo and double basins. The deck which winds around the tent leads to the private plunge pool and the fantastic outdoor shower. From these great luxury tents, scenic views of the pristine Botswana wilderness can be admired.

Facilities and Services

Located under the magnificent canopy of African ebony trees, Zafara features a welcoming main lounge, which is complete with an adjacent library and a dining area. In-room massage is also available and can be arranged. The Zarafa Camps depict a warm African feel while balancing romance and adventure making for an unforgettable safari journey.

Zarafa - Eco Lodge

The Zarafa Camp, one of the most environmentally innovative camps and in fact it might be the “greenest” luxury safari camp on the African continent, makes use of only natural sources. Only recycled hardwoods, as well as canvas, were used in its construction. The electricity is generated by the solar farm while ‘biogas’ plants recycle waste into usable cooking gas.

Access to the Zarafa Camp

The camp is accessible only to guests by scheduled air transfers or private air charters. On arrival at the airfield, the road transfer to the lodge is approximately an hour, including time for wildlife viewing stops en route. The airstrip at the camp is licensed for aircraft as large as a King Air. The flying time in a Cessna Caravan from Maun to Zarafa’s runway is about 45 minutes, and from Kasane, it is 50 minutes. The flying times may vary depending on the type of aircraft being used and the weather conditions.
