The area around Seba Camp offers fantastic game viewing opportunities.

Particularly exciting sights include: malachite kingfisher, white-browed coucal, Luapula cisticola, pied kingfisher, rufous-bellied heron and great egret. During winter, Seba is transformed into a water camp, due to the high water levels, offering water-based activities such as mokoro, motorboat excursions and fishing, as well as walks and the usual game drives.
Fishing with a limited supply of basic equipment is on offer seasonally on a catch-and-release basis. There is Elephant Research at this camp, discussing conservation and research with the local researchers is a wonderful way to learn about this iconic African species.
