Experience the pristine world of the early explorers of Southern Africa on a 5-day, low-impact canoe and fly camping safari through unspoilt African wilderness. Spend a few idyllic days gently paddling up the Selinda Spillway surrounded by open plains and riverine forests.
This meandering waterway connects the Linyanti Channel to the Okavango Delta in northern Botswana and is home to roan and sable antelope, plenty of hippo and large herds of elephant. Free of roads and major human settlements, the Selinda provides a truly remote and wild experience for the adventurous spirit, and birders will delight in the over 300 species that flock here.
By exploring the reserve on foot, you tread quietly and unlock the gift of a thrilling, up-close and personal perspective on the wilderness.
Your party of explorers is limited to eight travellers, with three support staff and a guide who is passionate about sharing his knowledge and love of the bush with you. Each evening, the staff erect a very comfortable fly camp at a scenic riverbank location; each tent features a comfortable bed and thoughtful touches, like a hot-water bottle. After an indulgent bucket shower, join your fellow travellers around the campfire to sip on sundowners before tucking into the remarkable feast prepared in a rugged, wood-fired kitchen. Before the satisfied fatigue of a day well seized takes you off to bed, gather around the campfire to toast marshmallows and trade stories with your companions.
You are also able to opt for a walking-only adventure over a 20km / 12.5mi course (the canoeing route covers about 40km / 25mi.
