Setari Camp is located on a picture-perfect palm island in the very heart of the Okavango.   Situated within a private concession of 120,000 acres of unspoilt wilderness, exclusivity and seclusion are guaranteed.   Enjoy a pure Delta experience, inhabited by a myriad of birdlife and wildlife unique to this exceptional ecosystem.   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.  
Setari Camp accommodates 20 guests in 8 light and airy tents and 1 suite designed for families.  Each tent cleverly combines understated luxury with an authentic and relaxed home-from-home atmosphere.   The camp resembles an enormous tree-house where the entire construction is elevated with wooden walkways linking the impressive sitting and dining areas, pool-with-a-view, gym and curio shop.   All of the tents have private decks with spectacular views over the Okavango.  Safari activities available at Setari include bush walking, boating or gliding gently through the waterways in a traditional Mokoro (dug-out canoe).  Delicious home-cooked food, super-comfy accommodation and superb guiding all combine to making Setari a hidden treasure in the iconic Okavango Delta.

Boat safaris

Setari Camp offers a range of boating activities including cruises in the nearby lagoons and waterways in their boats. Two of the boats have a viewing deck which make the ideal spot to enjoy the spectacular sunsets with a glass of bubbly and to view this marvellous ecosystem and its resident wildlife. The largest boat can take a maximum of 10 guests and the other 2 can take 8 guests each. Boat safaris are offered inclusive in the cost and go out twice a day with expert professional guides.

Cultural visit to Jao Village

Our airstrip is located on the beautiful and remote Jao Village, a small and isolated island with approximately 400 inhabitants. We offer the opportunity to go and visit the villagers and to see their fascinating way of life.

Full day exploring the Delta

For guests spending 3 nights with us, we offer a full day out exploring the Okavango. We leave early in the morning and travel by boat to the South of the concession to the idyllic islands where we go on a bush walk before having a picnic. A leisurely boat ride back in the afternoon affords the opportunity to watch the sun setting before reaching camp. A fantastic way to spend the day!

1 of 1

Guided Bush walks

In our view, there is no better way to immerse yourself in the bush than by going on a bush walk! We offer walking safaris on the islands to the south of the concession. Each of the walks is guided by one of our professional guides who is armed. We take a maximum of 8 people on a walking safari and each walk is accompanied by both guide and back up guide. Unfortunately, we do not accept children younger than 12 years old on our bush walks.

Mokoro Trips

We offer a chance to glide through the waters of the Okavango in a traditional Mokoro which is a dug-out canoe navigated by an expert poler. Spot the exquisite malachite kingfisher or marvel at the crystal clear waters.
