On the banks of the fabled Selinda Spillway, a seasonal waterway connecting the Okavango Delta to the Linyanti Swamps, Selinda Camp has access to a 130,000-hectare private game reserve.
Recently completely re-built, this luxurious small camp is surrounded by game-rich floodplains, waterways and open savannah in the massive Selinda Reserve. This is one of Africa’s most spectacular wilderness, a remote, untamed expanse roamed by thousands of elephants, scores of African wild dogs and magnificent lions of National Geographic fame.
There are just three beautifully appointed and very comfortable raised guest tents under thatch, each with a large private veranda, four-poster bed and swimming pool. As well as the three main tents, there’s also the Selinda Suite, a two-bedroom tented villa which operates separately for a more exclusive stay complete with your own private safari vehicle, guide and chef.
The new main living area has a lounge furnished with artworks and a raised thatched dining area that overlooks the floodplains and Spillway. Home-cooked meals are lovingly prepared and served on the camp’s star deck or in the main lodge. Other amenities include a shaded plunge pool, whilst activities feature bush walks in the immediate vicinity of camp and day and night 4x4 game drives further afield.
