The Zarafa Dhow Suites is in the far eastern region of the private 320,000 acres Selinda Reserve in northern Botswana. This two bedroom suite is luxuriously appointed and forms part of the Zarafa Camp (Great Plains). The Zarafa Dhow Suites is the ultimate private retreat providing guests with 2200 sq ft (210m2) of understated opulence in one of the most pristine wildlife destinations of Africa.
The Zarafa Dhow Suites accommodates a maximum of four adults and one child sharing. It features two separate bedrooms, plus an additional guide’s tent if required. Guests enjoy a fully inclusive safari stay where all activities, meals, park fees, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages (excluding imported and premium spirits) are included. Two generous bedrooms at Zarafa are on either side of the welcoming lounge and dining room. The multi-level deck features an outdoor swimming pool, adding to the palatial expanse of living space. Each of the private bedrooms offers their fireplace and large copper baths, set to make the most of the views out over the lagoon. Dinners are served either in the indoor dining room or outside, under the star-studded sky of Africa.
The early morning, as well as the late afternoon & early evening safari drives, are offered in a private open 4×4 vehicle. Guests also have the opportunity to explore the bushveld on guided walks and while cruising on the Zibadianja Lagoon on “HMS Zib” when water levels permit. The open-air gym allows guests to continue their daily exercise routine; relaxing in-room massages are available.
The airfield can take aircraft as large as a King Air. The flying time Maun to airstrip is about 46 minutes, and from Kasane, it is 52 minutes. This camp is only accessible to guests by scheduled air transfers or private air charters. On arrival at the airfield, the road transfer to the suite takes about an hour, including the time for short wildlife viewing stops en route.
