Classically styled safari Zarafa Camp is in the 320,000-acre Selinda Reserve, overlooking picturesque Zibadianja Lagoon. Majestic savannas and floodplains teem with game, including huge elephant herds and populations of lion, leopard and wild dog. Just four spacious, luxurious tents with verandas and private plunge pools accommodate a maximum of eight people, and thus are ideal for a private group of friends. Interiors feature ceiling fans, custom-made “campaign-style” furnishings, open gas fireplaces; lavish baths provide copper soaking tubs and both indoor and outdoor showers. A full-length shaded deck complements a tented lounge and well-stocked library, and there is an open-air gym. Exceptional cuisine and delightful staff. New autonomous Dhow Suites with lounge, dining room, private pool, two bedrooms with fireplaces and personal staff, game drive vehicle and guide. No children under age 8.
