Ultimate Luxury

Selinda Camp

Newly reopened in June 2019 after an extensive rebuild, Selinda Camp is a luxurious camp located on the private 130,000 hectare Selinda Reserve. This area of the Linyanti boasts wonderful views over the floodplains and elephants by the thousands.

Selinda Camp is built on a shady island overlooking the waters of the dramatic Selinda Spillway, an ephemeral waterway which is the focal point in a vast private concession in northern Botswana. With its large, game-rich floodplains, Selinda Camp offers a unique wildlife experience.

The new camp comprises three expansive guest tents, each under thatch with large en-suite bathrooms, a private veranda and swimming pool. Each room has been individually decorated in its own colour palette and theme. The overall design of the camp pays homage to the watery surrounds, with blue hues throughout and billowing silks and natural materials to bring a unique sense of the African wilderness within. In addition to the three main tents, there is a Selinda Suite which consists of a two-bedroom tented villa, and operates separately to provide guests with a completely exclusive safari experience.

The Selinda is host to a wide variety of bird species (300+) and wildlife, including hippo, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, cheetah, wild dog, lion, plenty of elephant and several species of antelope. Night drives allow guests to see nocturnal species such as porcupine, spring hare, hyena and perhaps even the elusive leopard. The camp is partly owned by the renowned wildlife documentary film makers Dereck and Beverley Joubert - examples of their work, particularly Beverley's photographs, dot the walls of the lodge, and the game drives are very tailored to those who have a photographic bent. The Selinda Reserve is noted for its large population of wild dog, with many documentaries being made here, charting the lives of these fascinating animals.
