A boutique safari and wellness escape will open in Botswana’s wildlife-rich Okavango Delta this May, marking the latest venture from Ibiza's Atzaró Group.

The Atzaró Okavango Camp will be a 12-suite property, situated by the Moremi Game Reserve, and feature an intimate wellness retreat.

The 130sq m facility – with two treatment suites, a yoga shala, a gym, a 20m freshwater pool and a large outdoor lounge area – will be surrounded by lush greenery and perched above a tranquil lagoon. Its strategic location will allow guests to gaze out onto the watering hole which is frequented by elephants, hippos, lions, leopards, cheetahs and buffalo.

Baobab-infused ritual
To add a deeper African connection, treatments and products will be supplied by Terres d'Afrique. The South African-based company specialises in wellness experiences inspired by the continent’s rich botanical heritage and traditional spa therapies.

It's crafted a brand new signature treatment for Atzaró using products powered by the baobab tree – known as the symbol of life in the arid savannah – and found in abundance in the Okavango.

Claimed to be a powerful antioxidant, baobab is called a superfruit due to its high concentrations of vitamins, minerals and prebiotic fibres.

The treatment will be offered as either a 60 or 90-minute ritual and start with a bespoke exfoliating mask using baobab powder, kigelia extract, crushed baobab seeds and baobab oil to gently exfoliate, reduce oxidative stress and help restore the skin barrier.

A soothing and hydrating pure aloe gel will then be applied before a detoxifying pinda head massage with heated baobab seeds.

Other therapies will range from facials, massages, scrubs and body treatments to hair and scalp treatments, post-suncare services and hand and foot rituals.

Beyond wellness, guests will be able to indulge in private game drives, community visits, guided safari hikes, stargazing, helicopter safaris, candlelit dinners by the lagoon and canoe expeditions.
