New, fresh & exciting…
Whilst we in the office all have our old favourites, it’s always exciting when a brand new camp opens its doors to visitors
One such camp is the small, privately owned and operated Setari Camp. It has a beautiful island setting overlooking the floodplains in the Okavango Delta. This is a little corner of paradise offering guests a superb delta experience.
The camp itself has been thoughtfully designed and the owners have put their heart and soul into making this a home from home. The tents, set on wooden decks, have spacious and comfortable interiors complimented by stylish furniture and accessories. Each one overlooks the floodplain and you have your own private deck where you can enjoy the vistas.
Follow the wooden walkway from your tent and you’ll find yourself at the main area where you can enjoy the company of the other guests. Relax in the lounge with a cold drink before sitting down to freshly prepared dishes in the dining area. Meals are a communal affair and an opportunity to swap stories about your safari so far. Afterwards, sit around the roaring fire, or ‘bush tv’ as it’s sometimes called and enjoy a nightcap before turning in, ready for another exciting day ahead.
The focus at Setari is on the quintessential Delta experience. Together with and experienced guide you’ll take to the water in a mokoro (dug out canoe) or cut through the deeper water on a motorboat cruise. Bush walks are on offer too, a great opportunity to learn and discover more about this beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site. Pay a visit to the locals in Jao village and learn about every day life in rural Botswana and what it entails and for those looking for something a little different you can book a helicopter ride and see things from the air (payable locally).
