Overview of Selinda Camp

The Selinda Spillway is an ephemeral waterway that ribbons through the Selinda Reserve in northern Botswana, flowing eastward from the Okavango Delta before splitting into the Linyanti and Chobe rivers. After years without revitalising water, this mysterious waterway began running freely from the Okavango Delta – thanks to increased rainfall levels and geological shifts.

Selinda Camp rests elegantly on the banks of the Selinda Spillway, as it enters the Linyanti River. It is situated in the private Selinda Reserve, a remote wilderness area that’s home to thousands of elephants, endangered wild dog, and the famous Selinda Lion Pride – the stars of the National Geographic film, Birth of a Pride.

The camp’s décor is centred around the four elements of earth, fire, air and water, and radiates a very careful blend of safari authenticity and luxurious bells ‘n whistles. Spacious and sturdy canvas tents are shaded with thatch roofing and raised on wooden decks, featuring private verandas for your own slice of Africa.

The Selinda Reserve harbours a staggering diversity of wildlife which you will discover on game drives in vehicles specially designed for photography – equipped with fold-down screens, raised roofs, photographic bars and multi-plug invertors. Walking safaris are also offered, as well as boating excursions on the Spillway (water-level dependent). Selinda’s open plains are ideal for cheetah, while the thicker woodlands provide refuge for leopard. The area is most famous for elephant, lion, wild dog, hippo, buffalo and giraffe.
