Seba Camp, Wilderness Safaris

Once used full time as an elephant research facility, Seba Camp sits on a beautiful little lake. Predominantly now used for safari, the camp still offers clients a chance to mingle with the researchers who are working in the area. Alongside this, with access to good game viewing and the water of the lake, Seba is a fantastic option for families and couples alike. Our preferred camp in the Abu concession, Seba is a good option for those wanting wilderness rather than game abundance.

Seba Camp - The Details


Overlooking a perennial lagoon with prolific birdlife and resident pods of hippo, Seba Camp has eight well-appointed, spacious tents elevated from the ground - each celebrating one of the different tribes of Botswana through vibrant décor. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom and a private deck with magnificent vistas of the perennial lagoon and the host of wildlife passing by.

Well-lit paths lead to the communal dining area, bar and a lounge-library - replete with reference and pictorial books. As they are raised on a saligna deck, spectacular vistas greet guests in all these areas. Seba Camp also has a secluded swimming pool to refresh and relax in after a game drive. Gourmet meals are served, usually al fresco, in the dining area: five-star cuisine and superb dinners follow cocktails shared by guests, researchers and guides around a traditional campfire.

The camp is named after Seba, one of the elephants historically released from nearby Abu Camp. As a baby, Seba starred in the Walt Disney movie, Whispers, that was filmed in the area. The word "seba" means whisper in the local language.

He and a number of elephants that were released back into the wild have now formed their own herd near Seba Camp. The interaction between these and the wild elephant herds in the area provides rich fodder for research teams from Bristol University in the UK. Guests can observe the researchers at work, often in close proximity to the elephant herds. Guides are always happy to drive visitors to see a released elephant and its wild companions when they are in the vicinity of Seba Camp.

The large elephant population aside, a seasonal abundance of game graces the area: giraffe, zebra, impala, wildebeest, tessebe and lechwe. Lion frequent the greater area and herds of buffalo are also occasional visitors to Seba Camp.During winter Seba Camp is transformed into a water camp, with water-based activities taking precedence - such as moroko and motorboat excursions, including fishing as an option.
