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!

The Okavango Delta is where the wild things are: an immense, waterlogged oasis alive with elephants and birdlife, adrift in the middle of Kalahari sands. The real magic of the Delta lies in its water, trickling through from far away highlands, and spreading across the channels and floodplains. During winter in the Kalahari, when the sun has baked the earth bare and turned the desert its driest, water fills the Okavango; transforming the floodplains into a Noah’s Ark of African wildlife. As the water brings life to the delta, its local residents shape and recreate it. Termites slowly build mounds into islands, germinated with palm trees by passing elephants. Waterways open and close on the whim of wide-bottomed hippos, carving out channels where they crash through reeds, and leaving room behind them for exploration by mokoro. The Okavango has many faces, which change throughout the year, prompted by that most unpredictable diva of all: the weather. Water levels rise and drop, expanding and shrinking islands, while animals move where the life is easiest and the grass greenest. In a few days, a sandy road driven by vehicle can become a waterway of unknowable depth, prompting a safari by boat instead. Where and when you stay in the Okavango Delta will hugely influence what you do in the bush each day, the animals you’re most likely to see and finally, the safari experience you’ll have. The delta’s watery heart is best discovered by mokoro through shallow channels and floodplains, as well as crossing the islands on foot. For less water and more of the big game, visit a camp on its drier edges (including Moremi Game Reserve and the Khwai Community Area), jump on a vehicle and seek out the animals hiding in the woodlands.
