Zarafa Camp Location
Zarafa Camp (formerly known as Zibalianja Camp), overlooks the Zibadianja Lagoon - the source of the world famous Savute Channel. Zarafa Camp evokes a sense of old-style safari with its four large, luxuriously appointed double or twin 'marquis style' tents. Hosting a maximum of eight guests, the emphasis at Zarafa Camp is on offering a personalised and private experience to guests - perfect for those who favour a more intimate experience or those who prefer the entire camp for their own, exclusive use. Zarafa Camp boasts all of the Chobe wildlife, with a varied bird and mammal community. Abundant plains game can be found here including lechwe, kudu, buffalo, zebra and giraffe. It is also a predator-rich reserve including cheetah, wild dog, lion, and leopard. The massive herds of elephant are another highlight while a wide variety of birds - some 300 or more - can be seen.
