Setari Camp enjoys an idyllic island setting on a 50,000-hectare private concession in the Okavango Delta’s Panhandle region. The island is dotted with palm trees, is thick with riverine vegetation and offers an exclusive, water-based safari experience. Water activities are available all year round as it is situated on a permanent channel in the heart of the Okavango Delta. Travel by boat through the ever-winding papyrus channels, or explore the floodplains by Mokoro, immersing yourself with scenery that is tranquil and peaceful.

This is a birders paradise boasting a huge number of migrant birds, aquatic birds, raptors, a seasonal heronry and to top it all, the elusive and beautiful Pel’s Fishing Owl. Setari Camp is Setswana for ‘Tree’ and has been lovingly designed to integrate the giant riverine forest and palms trees which dominate the island. Winding walkways, high above the ground, interlink the tents, dining area, sitting room, pool and gym, creating a massive treehouse from which to enjoy the amazing views over the crystal-clear channels and papyrus beds beyond. All of Setari Camp’s nine large tented rooms, one being a family unit, feature ensuite bathrooms with separate loo, outdoor shower and bathtub.

The central camp facilities under thatch include the dining area and a comfy indoor lounge. Outdoors, Setari Camp has a well shaded relaxation area and swimming pool with a view. Electricity supply is available with certain limitations. The permanent waters of the Okavango Delta’s region are renowned for their aquatic wildlife. Larger water dependent animals such as hippo and crocodile are frequently seen. The island is also home to the rare and regal Sitatunga antelope as well as bushbuck, a resident leopard, baboons and a lone hyena. Pristine watery wilderness, exclusivity and seclusion are guaranteed!

Before the Okavango River fans out into its familiar delta shape, its waters are channelled between parallel fault lines, this channel is commonly known as the Pan Handle, as the Delta takes on the appearance of a giant frying pan in the heart of the Kalahari. Permanent deep water has encouraged the growth of villages along the river on the western side, these communities are mainly fishermen and cattle farmers, offering a true glimpse of village life rarely seen by visitors to Botswana who normally frequent the wildlife areas only. The Panhandle contains huge areas of unspoiled wetlands and a number of well-established lodges on the western side, offer you the chance to experience exquisite birdlife, a huge population of hippos and some of the largest crocodiles in Africa. In general wildlife is less abundant so the focus is on water based activities - motorboating and fishing. The best time for fishing is September/October and the renowned Barbel Run’s, it’s a fascinating phenomenon where both serious fisherman and beginners, can try their luck at landing the legendary Tiger Fish. It is also possible to travel by road or boat to the eastern side where community based mokoro excursions are offered. The Pan Handle is in close proximity to the ‘must see’ world heritage site of Tsodilo Hills, the spiritual home of the San and Bantu people. Tsodilo features many well preserved specimens of 'rock art' and there is a small museum where it is possible to hire a local guide for a personal tour of this historical area.
