Zarafa is exquisite. Excellent and very knowledgeable guides and TONS of wildlife. The rooms are massive and very comfortable. The "surround sound" outdoor showers spray from all angles - and if you're lucky you can shower while watching and elephant or buffalo play around in the water in front of camp.

The staff is beyond accomodating. They wake you up every morning with hot tea or coffee (or whatever you ask for). They don't say no to anything - they will make anything happy to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. If you have the opportunity to go, GO!

Room tip: All tents are amazing - and have an unforgettable view!

Have been to several safari camps and this is right at the top. Rooms, meals, service ... man we were all spoilt. Our passionate guide Issac was outstanding ... A true carer of nature, we definitely learnt a lot because of him.

Definitely recommend for those looking for something a bit more private and celebrating something special. Grounds were beautiful, staff was friendly and accommodating, game viewing was spectacular. All around great time.

Camp was gorgeous and wildlife viewing was amazing. We went to Kruger also and I definitely preferred Botswana - for the most part, untouched by mankind. Rueben was an excellent guide. Food was incredible. Staff was very polite and helpful. Could not have asked for a better experience. We will hopefully be back!!
