Setari Camp is Setswana for ‘Tree’ and has been lovingly designed to integrate the giant riverine forest and palms trees which dominate the island. Winding walkways, high above the ground, interlink the tents, dining/sitting room, pool and gym, creating a massive tree-house from which to marvel at the panoramic views over the crystal-clear channels and papyrus beds beyond.
Situated within a private concession of 120,000 acres of pristine watery wilderness, exclusivity and seclusion are guaranteed. Enjoy a pure Delta experience, inhabited by a myriad of birdlife and wildlife unique to this exceptional ecosystem.
The area is a birder’s paradise, boasting a huge number of migrant birds, aquatic birds, raptors, a seasonal heronry and to top it all, the hauntingly beautiful Pel’s Fishing Owl. To add to this, the island is also home to the rare and regal Sitatunga antelope as well as bushbuck, a resident leopard, hippo, baboons and a lone hyena.
At one with the Okavango
Wonder at the magical birds and wildlife from one of our specially modified game viewing boats or from a traditional mekoro (dug out canoe). We also offer bush walks on the neighbouring islands where we hope to take in the resident elephant or sitatunga.
Each of the 8 double tented suites and 1 tented family suite are built high in the trees overlooking the floodplain beyond. They have been stylishly furnished and all have en-suite bathrooms with outside shower and freestanding bath. Our swimming pool, gym and large, airy dining and seating area all have spectacular views over the surrounding wilderness.
