In the private 320 000 acre Selinda Reserve in northern Botswana, Zarafa Camp sits beneath the trees on its own little island in the Zibadianja Lagoon. Such is the beauty of Botswana – many vast tracts of remote land still exist, land untouched by human hands. Land where silence prevails along with the deep roar of lions and the cry of the African Fish Eagle. The Selinda Reserve lies in the Selinda Spillway, which weaves its way east, linking the far reaches of the Okavango Delta in the south with the Linyanti and Chobe water systems in the east.
The rich woodland and waterways of the Selinda with its farrago of fauna and flora is bound to inspire the artist in you, whether on game drives, boat trips, bush walks or right from your tent. Capture the endangered African wild dog out hunting and the rare African skimmer in flight. Each of the camp's suites is equipped with a professional Canon camera, with a Canon 40D body and 35-135 mm and 100-400mm telephoto zoom lens, for you to use during your stay. All images are copied onto a DVD for you to take home.
In Botswana, time-honoured safari experiences immerse travellers in the natural treasures, from the starkly beautiful Makgadikgadi Pan to Chobe, home to the world's largest concentration of African elephants. Whether gliding through deep channels on a mokoro or on a photographic safari tracking lions across the open plains, travellers help support the continued sustainability of these unique habitats for generations to come.
