Setari Camp

Okavango Delta

Rating: Mid-range    

Setari Camp overview

Tucked away on a small palm-fringed island in the Okavango Delta you'll find Setari Camp.  The camp offers guests a slice of life in this idylic part of the Okavango Delta, it's an escape from it all, a million miles away from your hectic everyday life, some might say a slice of heaven.

The camp is surrounded by water year round and as such can offer a true Delta experience, from guided walks on foot to gliding through the waterways in a mokoro with your expert poler, or getting deeper into the delta on a boating trip. At the end of a day of exploring the area for wildlife, return to Setari Camp for some great food and a comfy place to sleep.

At any one time Setari Camp can accommodated 20 guests in 8 spacious tents, one if which has been designed for families. The decor is stylish and elegant and also functional and comfortable. Each one has extra length beds draped in a large mozzie net. You'll have a desk, sofa and fan to keep things cool. The bathrooms are a good size too with a free-standing bath, separate shower and toilet and outside you'll find another shower - with a view. To the front of your tent, accessed via double doors is the deck where you can sit and soak up the views of the delta in total peace and quiet, a blissful escape. The family tent can sleep four, in two adjoining tents, each has its own bathroom and outside shower. There is a deck area between the two tents where a private dinner can be arranged.

The main areas are as stylish as the tents and linked to them via high wooden walkways. Here, in a kind of tree-house you'll find the dining and lounge area along with the pool and gym. Sit and enjoy the views as you look out over the channels and floodplains that stretch out before you as you are looked after by the friendly staff.
