Selinda is an intimate camp offering understated luxury on the banks of the eastern Selinda Spillway, a waterway that links Botswana’s Okavango Delta to the Linyanti and Kwando marshes, rivers and floodplains. The shaded camp is raised a metre or so off the ground and offers extraordinary views over the floodplains, waterways and wide-open savannas which are only broken by attractive palm islands. These views are among Selinda’s most compelling features.
The recently refurbished Selinda Camp has nine spacious guest tents under thatch, each with two comfortable three-quarter sized beds draped with flowing mosquito nets adding to the romantic atmosphere. The thatch roof combined with ceiling fans and roof vents cool the living space during the hot days. The rooms have spacious, en-suite bathrooms, with full sized stone baths and antique showers. Dual vanity basins complement the sense of luxury and sliding doors allow for privacy or create an open-air bathroom feel as well.
Activities in the Selinda Reserve include both day and night game drives in open 4×4 vehicles. Game viewing is of a high standard, particularly in the drier months. Typically seen in the Selinda area are giraffe, baboon, black-backed jackal, elephant, wildebeest, cheetah, crocodile, lion, wild dog, hippo, honey badger, reedbuck, roan, sable and a host of birds. For the more energetic, short guided walking trails are available on request within the vicinity of the camp.
Large thatched rooms with huge bathrooms with shower and bathtub. Large communal area has dining room, bar, lounge and plunge pool.
Large numbers of elephant are seen here throughout the year plus healthy populations of both sable and roan antelope, giraffe, baboon, black-backed jackal, hippo, honey badger, reedbuck and many predators including lion, leopard, wild dog and occasionally cheetah.
Night and day game drives, guided bush walks and boat-based activities (when water levels permit) are all included on a shared basis.
