Sekoma: A “ Robinson Crusoe” Paradise.
Join us and discover a magical island where you get to fish the mighty Zambezi and Chobe Rivers. Sekoma Island belongs to a chain of islands in the Mambova Rapids, below which lies the Caprivi Strip where Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana and Namibia meet.
The waters surrounding Sekoma Island are can only be explored by a mokoro (dugout boat), with the exception of the northern point which accommodates guests and has a harbour, guaranteeing complete privacy.
Sekoma Island is home to but a lucky few: Lodge staff, guests and a herd of bachelor elephant. The Island offers elephant refuge in the Sekoma forest, which teems with indigenous birds, fauna and flora.
