Zarafa Camp is an intimate, four room exquisite tented camp located on the 320,000 acre Selinda Reserve in northern Botswana, an area linking the Okavango Delta and the Chobe/Savute corridors. Its villa, the Dhow Suites, consist of two tents and private main area and operates entirely independently of main camp. Few camps rival the location of this little gem, Botswana’s first and only Relais & Chateaux property. Overlooking the crystal waters Zibadianja Lagoon, the source of the famous Savute Channel, every area of camp has a magnificent view. The lagoon is also the water source for a tremendous population of wildlife – dry season sightings boast buffalo and elephant by the hundreds.

Zarafa Camp and Dhow Suites are the brainchild of the founders of Great Plains Conservation, who pooled their collective experience on safari to create what they deemed to be the best and most environmentally innovative camp. As a consequence, Zarafa may in fact be the “greenest” luxury safari camp on the continent. Only recycled hardwoods and canvas were used in the construction and all the camp’s electricity comes from its solar farm while ‘bio gas’ plants recycle waste into usable cooking gas.

The Zarafa Camp guest tents, 1000 sq. ft in extent, are under beige, flowing canvas, with canopy ceilings and completely open (yet netted) sides. Entering through the heavy wood Lamu door transports guests to a lavish space of deep reds, browns, brass and copper, evoking richness and beauty. Each tent has a full lounge with desk, gas fireplace for winter and even WWII crank phone for drink orders! The large bedroom is connected to an open layout bathroom with impressive copper claw foot bath, indoor shower, separate loo and double basins. Decking around the tent leads to the private plunge pool and full-body outdoor shower, all with views of pristine Botswana wilderness. Under an impressive canopy of African ebony trees, the camp has a sizable main lounge, with adjacent library and dining area. A curio shop and ‘jungle gym’ satiate those who need retail therapy or a good work out. In-room massage is also available. Zarafa has succeeded in successfully in retaining a clearly African feel, while balancing that delicate relationship between personal and informal and romance and adventure. Zarafa Camp has no equal in terms of its environmental credentials and its careful appointments.

Waterberry Zambezi Lodge, on the banks of the Zambezi, is 30 minutes from Livingstone and 40 minutes from Victoria Falls. A small, friendly and informal lodge with just seven rooms, it’s the perfect setting for visiting the amazing Falls and enjoying the wide range of activities around Livingstone.

The lodge was built 25 years ago in classic style and has seven thatched cottages set around sweeping lawns with a central restaurant, viewing lounge and deck. All rooms are en suite, with air conditioning, ceiling fans, mosquito nets and private terraces.

The real beauty of Waterberry is that it is within easy reach of Livingstone and the Falls, but well away from helicopters and microlights and the general buzz of a busy town. Guests usually spend at least one day around the Falls and the town to experience the activities there and then choose to stay at the lodge, enjoying what Waterberry has to offer – river activities (cruises, island picnics, fishing) and amazing birding with top class guides. A highlight of many visitors’ stay is the village visit to a completely uncommercial local village where many of the staff live and where Waterberry has built and manages the local pre and primary schools.

The new Univisa between Zambia and Zimbabwe makes travel between the two countries cheap and easy, so guests can easily visit both sides of the Falls. Waterberry is also within easy reach of neighbouring Botswana and Namibia.

Waterberry is a four star lodge that aims to over deliver on every aspect – excellent food, friendly staff, comfortable rooms – and is entirely dedicated to making every guest feel special. That’s why Waterberry is No1 on Trip Advisor for Speciality Lodging in the area.
