Children of all ages welcome…

Jacana Camp

Just a reminder that both Jacana and Seba camps welcome children of all ages and are ready to share the delights of the Okavango with family travelers.
Herewith an excerpt from the Seba family programme: “One of the biggest dilemmas facing families who want to go on safari is judging the best age to bring their children. If they are too young, you risk them not appreciating the rare opportunity to immerse themselves in this fascinating world. In addition, trying to keep their attention might simultaneously detract from the parents’ and other guests’ experience. But wait too long and you could miss that magical expression of wonderment when a child sees their first elephant in the wild. In an age where wilderness areas and the multitude of wildlife that inhabits them are constantly at threat, we believe that the next generation holds the key to environmental conservation in the future. Consequently, unlike many camps, we do not have a minimum age restriction for our younger guests (nor do we have a maximum either!).”
Fantastic news indeed – and an opportunity to experience the magic of the Okavango Delta in the company of your children – a family holiday of a lifetime!!!

Seba Camp


 The Madikwe Game Reserve is one of the largest game reserves in South Africa, covering some 75,000 hectare. The rich diversity of vegetation ensures a wide range of game and the topography offers ideal game viewing opportunities. The reserve is situated against the Botswana border, 90 km north of Zeerust, just three hours’ drive from both Johannesburg and Pretoria, and is now one of South Africa’s prime safari destinations. It is very close to Pilanesberg National Park and the world renowned Sun City.

Madikwe is regarded as one of the finest conservation areas in Africa, offering the ‘Super 7’, adding cheetah and the endangered African wild dog to the already famous ‘Big Five’ – lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, both white and black rhino.  along with almost all the plains antelope species. Plus brown hyena, sable, eland, gemsbok, giraffe and large herds of plains game and plenty of birds.

The reserve is becoming ever-increasingly popular perhaps due to the fact that it is in a malaria-free zone, which makes it a popular destination for families travelling with small children. There are 30 lodges on the property, and six lodges in the private farms outside the main reserve.
