A swish safari retreat, Selinda Camp is the epitome of refined elegance and bushveld indulgence. Lavish tents with beautiful wooden furniture and large comfortable beds promise charming, inviting interiors. Absorb the panoramic views from your private deck or opt for the company of other guests in the cosy communal areas. Relish the friendly service and soak up the laid-back ambiance of the camp. Tuck into delectable cuisine complemented by some of the fine wines from the cellar.

Selinda Camp is located in the 320,000 acre Selinda Reserve of northern Botswana along the eastern banks of the Selinda Spillway, near the confluence of the Linyanti, Savute and Kwando Rivers. At the peak of dry season, this concession boasts elephants by the thousands and regular sightings of the Selinda pack of African wild dogs. The Selinda Reserve is west (upstream) from Savute Channel and Chobe, so it has all the advantages of both of those famous areas but with the tremendous advantage of exclusivity. It is a truly spectacular and unique landscape. Each of Selinda Camp's eight spacious, sturdy canvas tents is shaded with thatch roofing and raised on wooden decks with a large private verandah for a slice of one’s own private Africa. Each tent has a small seating area and desk. One of the tents is a family unit, consisting of two bedrooms and two bathrooms connected by a wrap-around deck. Selinda’s commanding main lounge and dining area is raised with views of the Spillway. Nearby is the large walk-in wine cellar and art gallery as well as the curio shop. After the day’s events, the pool is a welcome respite, and then a drink around the fire pit rounds out the day.

At the peak of dry season, this concession boasts elephants by the thousands and regular sightings of the Selinda pack of African wild dogs. Set under an impressive thatch structure, Selinda’s décor is centered on the four elements of air, water, fire and earth with art by Keith Joubert. It is a careful blend of humble bush camp with some extra bells ‘n’ whistles, making for a home away from home atmosphere.

Great Plains Conservation came to Selinda Reserve in 2007, reclaiming this magnificent area from the shadows of hunting, and placing all the acreage under photographic tourism. Recent census (2012) shows an overall increase in wildlife, of considerable amount, and Selinda and its guests are a key component of this conservation success. A patchwork of microhabitats, Selinda Reserve hosts a staggering diversity of wildlife. The open plains are an ideal habitat for cheetah and the thicker woodlands are refuge for leopard. It is famous for elephant and lion, wild dog and hippo, buffalo and giraffe and the more rarely seen roan and sable. Some days we will spend hours with a single herd of elephants; other days we may track predators, or wait in a hide for Slaty egrets to arrive and fish. Each winter we wait hopefully for the Selinda pack of African wild dogs to pick their den, which is often near camp. The Selinda Reserve is west (upstream) from Savute Channel and Chobe, so it has all the advantages of both of those famous areas but with the tremendous advantage of exclusivity. It is a truly spectacular and unique landscape.

Selinda Camp Botswana Africa

Selinda Camp is situated in the Selinda Private Reserve in the Linyanti region of northern Botswana. Here you will find game-rich floodplains and the famous Zibalianja Lagoon. Nestled quietly in small island with very little impression on the environment, the camp is part owned by Dereck and Beverly Joubert who filmed the famous Eye of the Leopard, so you can imagine the care taken in designing it.
