Okavango Delta, Botswana
Botswana Safari Lodges Bookings
Seba Camp, set in an ancient riverine forest in the heart of Botswana's magical Okavango Delta, offers secluded, luxurious accommodation overlooking a lagoon and seasonal floodplain teeming with animal and bird life. Guests can enjoy more than game viewing, however, as the camp is a base for unique research on elephant behaviour and a regular centre for wildlife film-makers.
It is named after Seba, a young bull elephant who was part of Randall Moore's pioneering elephant back safaris out of Abu Camp, a few kilometres away. Seba was released back into the wild where he joined up with other trained elephants released back into the wild by Moore.
The herd has chosen to remain in the vicinity of the camps. The interaction between the released elephants and the wild herds that traverse the area is providing a rich field for research teams from Bristol University in the United Kingdom. Guests at Seba are invited to observe firsthand the researchers at work, often in close proximity to the elephant herds.
