Safaris: A Full Day of exploring

A day exploring Setari is a perfect way to enjoy every aspect of the area.  We set off early in the morning after breakfast and make our way to the South of the concession.  We then find one of the larger islands where we have a walk followed by a picnic lunch.  After lunch, we head back to camp in time to watch one of the beautiful Setari sunsets.


For the keen fisherman (or woman!) we have plenty of tackle in camp and offer catch and release fishing for bream or tiger fish.

Cultural visit to Jao Village

An opportunity to spend a morning or an afternoon on Jao Island where you will meet the charming villagers and have a chance to watch the ladies weaving baskets.
