We stayed for 4 nights in July 2023. Seba camp is a beautiful place and the staff are remarkable people. We had Joe as our guide and we couldn't have asked for a better person to show us the wildlife around the area. He was kind, knowledgeable, funny, and a wicked driver especially when we had to Ferrari Safari to get to the leopard or the wild dogs that had been found!! The camp staff were amazing too and the food outstanding. Early morning breakfasts around the lake were magical but the highlight for my son was the pizza made in the bush pizza oven cut into a termite mound with elephants and hippos grazing nearby. The staff are also great singers and we were privileged to hear them sing for us, including for my husband's 50th birthday. We had such an amazing time and I was genuinely sad to leave. Love you beautiful Seba Camp!

Responded 01 Feb 2022
Thank you for your wonderful review, Seba is truly a wonderful wildlife experience, and the area is known for its large elephant population. In addition, unlike the permanently inundated areas of the Okavango Delta, the habitats around Seba vary greatly, allowing for an abundance of general game viewing, including giraffe, zebra, antelope such as impala, tsessebe, lechwe and wildebeest, and buffalo and warthog. Leopard are common, and hyaena and African wild dog are also regularly seen, while a number of lion have moved into the area, and can sometimes be heard roaring at night. We are glad you were able to enjoy the special dinner experiences, and we will be sure to pass on your kind words to Painter and the rest of the team at camp. Bush regards Wilderness Safaris

I have been remiss in not writing this review earlier, however I believe my wife and I were the last people to be at Seba in March, 2020 before Botswana shut down for the pandemic and it is still closed to visitors. We were not familiar with Seba before Chris Liebenberg, our Africa travel agent (Piper & Heath Travel), sent us there as part of our March trip to Botswana. As far as we are concerned Seba is an undiscovered jewel. The tents are very spacious. Since we were the last people there we were given the "family" tent which had 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and plenty of space to spread out and be comfortable. The staff was very friendly and attentive; Gideon, the manager, and Moses, the assistant manager, worked hard to ensure we had a great time, and Go, our guide, had an uncanny ability to predict the location and behavior of the wildlife. Our first afternoon we found a young male leopard who spent considerable time posing for us on a fallen tree. The next day we found his father up a tree working on a kill, when the youngster showed up. We got to watch the interaction between the two leopards. There was even a brief tussle when the father came down after finishing with the kill. While he could have easily killed his son he allowed his son to think he had driven him off, after which the son went up the tree to see if there was anything left to eat. Our first morning there we also found a pair of male lions who had taken a cape buffalo the previous night. We watched these lions over the next three days as they worked on the buffalo and eventually gave up and surrendered the remains to the vultures. Go also found us a female lion who had taken a small giraffe. That night the giraffe was stolen by hyaenas and we found the female lion the next day looking for prey. We just missed seeing a pack of wild dogs which came through the area briefly. There is lots of wildlife in the area and Go was great at finding it for us. We will return.

We stayed for three days at Seba and had the best vacation ever. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The wildlife is unparalleled, and the accommodations are top notch. Elephants, Buffalo, Warthogs, monkeys, Baboons and many other species come to the water hole right in view of the lodge. I was surprised to learn that there are more plush versions of the lodge in other Wilderness Safari options, but we certainly did not need anything more! There were families here while we stayed, and it is a great place to bring a family.

We loved the atmosphere at Seba. It is laid-back, rustic and relaxing. It felt like home away from home ! The staff are amazing and went out of their way to make us feel at home and they were full of surprises every single day. The highlight was the famous Seba pizza picnic in the bush with the oven built in an old inactive termite mound. We loved the private dining on the beach in front of camp and at the pool with candles everywhere. Of the 6 camps we visited, Seba's food was of the very best, thanks to the excellent chefs. Our room had a beautiful view over the waterhole and game constantly came to drink there. The room is slightly smaller than some of the other camps, but perfect for our 3 night stay. The concession is huge and diverse and we saw absolutely everything. Apart from many lion sightings the true 'Swamp Lion' was a first and very special, as was staying with a leopard finishing off her kill in a big tree. Thanks to our guide, Tsono, we were the only guests to see a Wild dog kill, even though we almost got stuck ! Thanks Seba-team you are amazing ! Keep up the good work. and thanks again for the private dinners, we loved it !!

Had an amazing time here with friends and family. We had the family tents which were amazing with your own private pool. The staff are all amazing and always happy to help with anything. Our guide Kitso was great, and very knowledgeable, he kept us all entertained and explained things we never knew before. We managed to see about 5 leopards, and also an interaction between leopard, wild dogs and hyenas. We also saw lions. Kitso went out of his was to ensure we managed to see as much game as possible, and also positioning the vehicle for the right light for photography. Our family tent was amazing, it could sleep 6, and had an upstairs portion with balcony. The star gazing is great from there. The tents/rooms were very clean and comfortable, and all amenities were provided. We could hear the buffaloes and elephants at night :) and the distant hyenas. At one point a leopard also came to camp and tried to attack a small crocodile. The food at the camp was amazing, and we really looked forward to any meal times, and always pleasantly surprised. We had several vegetarian people with us too and all were impressed. Our young kids were also kept busy with Dini (Bush Buddy) and she did various activities with them in between the game drives and after their dinner. I highly recommend this camp, and may perhaps go back there as the game viewing was excellent.

We spent 3 nights at Seba in early August and loved it. Beautiful camp, great staff, great meals and amazing drives. Pointer was our guide for the 3 days and went out of his way to ensure that we saw and did the most amazing things. We landed and immediately tracked a lioness who took down a large male kudu bull within 15 minutes of us arriving - like a private show. Beautiful mokoro trip, pizza in the bush from an old termite mound and loads of game on every drive. Nothing was too much effort and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience - from the Wilderness lounge facilities in Maun to the special touches at the camp. Would definitely go back and highly recommend the camp as well as the Wilderness booking services.

Was there for two days in the middle of June. Nights were cold and days were warm so dress accordingly. They put hot water bottles in the beds at night by your feet which is highly appreciated. Haven’t slept so well in years. Be prepared for all sorts of animal noises at night. Staff was absolutely amazing (ask for Big O as your guide before you arrive). Food was very good and the only complaint we had is would’ve liked to have stayed longer. The game viewing was excellent. If you have children this would also be a great camp to take them to due to the special programs for kids. They like all the wilderness campus we were at do laundry every day so you don’t need to bring more than to or three days worth of clothes. This is a Classic Wilderness camp and met 100% of my expectations and desires and more. Definitely plan on sticking with the Classic camps going forward. I simply don’t see any need to go to the Premier camps.

Thank you Francis, we are glad to see your stay with us not only met but exceeded your expectations. Seba is the ideal family safari destination in the Okavango – a place where learning is so much fun that youngsters may not even realise that the Delta has been transformed into the most wonderful classroom. Seba guides delight in sharing their knowledge and introducing children to the magic of wild Africa. Thank you again Wilderness Safaris

We enjoyed hospitality of Seba for 3 nights in June when days were warm and clear and nights cold. We loved the way they used the whole camp area for dinner and their high level of service. We travelled with 8 year old and had a family tent and private guide & car. The tent was huge and yes - it is two tents combined with one bedroom upstairs, own small pool, two bathrooms and excellent views from the terrace. Okavango area is really beautiful, but in this part they have ”only” the Big 4 - so no rhino. Others we did see and lots of other interesting stuff too. Boating & mokoro nice experiences as well. Warmly recommended!
