Located on a palm island at the base of the ‘Panhandle’ where the Okavango River begins to fan out into the Delta, Setari Camp offers a wetland experience unlike almost any other camp. This is an area of deep-water channels where the focus is on the aquatic environment and magnificent landscape. A true ‘wet’ camp where activities focus on boat cruises and mokoro trips with fishing and guided walks also on offer as well as visits to the nearby Jao village for those interested in learning more about the local culture. 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.
The camp resembles an enormous tree-house where the entire construction is elevated and with wooden walkways linking the impressive sitting and dining areas, pool-with-a-view, gym and curio shop. There are eight spacious tents and one family suite interlinked by these winding walkways through the trees each with a private deck with views over the Delta.
