overview

Selinda Camp overlooks the Selinda Spillway, an enigmatic, often ephemeral river which links the Okavango Delta with the floodplains of the remote Linyanti Swamps. The spillway nourishes a particularly rich environment, famous for its dense populations of animals. The beautifully decorated main lodge and various viewing decks overlook the river's palm-fringed floodplains and is the ideal place to kick back, relax and watch as wildlife comes to drink.

Set out on morning and afternoon game drives in custom-made open 4X4s or head off on thrilling bush walks guided by professional rangers. Your evenings, after you've enjoyed a spotlit night drive and dinner, are spent around the traditional campfire sharing your stories with the other guests and guides. It's the ideal destination for wildlife enthusiasts but romantics and honeymooners will love the alfresco, star-lit dining, decadent stone bathtub and in-room massages.

Begin your days at dawn with a light breakfast around the campfire before setting out on your morning game drive. A hearty brunch is served on your return to camp while your afternoon activity is preceded by afternoon tea and snacks.

End off your day with a three-course dinner and good conversation around the campfire - meals at Selinda Camp are served under thatch, out on the deck or beneath the starry sky.

Tent

Selinda Camp has only nine double luxury canvas tents, built on raised wooden decks and shaded by vast thatch canopies.

The spacious tents feature large, mosquito net-draped beds, a writing desk and sitting area as well as an expansive en suite dressing room and bathroom.

The en suite bathroom has both a shower and a large, decadent bathtub while the shady veranda offers views of the floodplain and the animals that gather at the water's edge.

Traveller Reviews

  • I just wanted to let you know that trip worked out fine. The flights coordinated and the lodges were good. We really loved Madikwe and Selinda.

    Judy Kaminstein, October 2014
  • Selinda camp In terms of luxury, Selinda camp felt like a real step up. The main dining area and our tent were really luxurious, with amazing views. The camp is probably more suited to couples on a romantic getaway. Overall the food was good and we were very happy with the snacks provided at morning and afternoon tea. The game drives were also excellent. Our guide Joseph was really professional and had no problem finding animals for us. His work to find us a pride of 9 lions was nothing short of amazing, so we have him to thank for all the wonderful photos we captured. We also tried our luck at fishing during our stay and again had a great time. In 2 hours we caught 5 tilapia and 7 or 8 catfish, including some real big ones!

  • Selinda was much more western to me. Bigger but has it's own charm. We went on a 4 hour walk in grass taller than me! Different perspective of the land. We saw lots of game there too ... Breakfast pap around the fire was great way to start the day. Our guide there was great too... seems the guides all come from the areas local to the camps.. such lovely people.
