Luxury Safari Camps in the Selinda Reserve
About the Selinda Reserve
There are few places left on Earth where you can be free, truly free, where your soul can see open spaces and hear each and every sound of nature. The Selinda Spillway is one of those places.
At Selinda there are places so wild that no man has ever walked there. It is a place where elephants roam free and huge herds of buffalo wander without boundaries. Birds abound here and against this backdrop of wilderness, all kinds of animals from silent stalking leopards to aardwolves play out their lives This is the place where wildlife can breathe freely, unmolested and unrestrained. So can you.
The Selinda Reserve is one of Botswana’s most famous private reserves that offers all the intimacy and exclusive, eco-friendly tourism experiences that Botswana has becomeÝknown for. It is a 300,000 acre private wildlife sanctuary in the Northern part of Botswana, and what makes it unique is that it is shared by a maximum of 28 guests at any time.
Accommodation is in a selection of intimately sized camps.
The area is centred around the famous Selinda Spillway which snakes its way through the reserve, linking the outer reaches of the Okavango Delta in the west with the Linyanti Swamps in the east – a truly spectacular and unique landscape.
Selinda is upstream of the old Savuti system and west of the Chobe, so it has all the advantages of both of those famous areas but with the tremendous advantage of exclusivity.
You will be able to venture out on safari and see anything from lions, or elephants, cheetah and wild dogs to the smaller animals that are typical of the wild in Botswana. You will drive in the bush, dine under the stars and sleep under canvas, but you may also want to walk, watch birds or learn about plants. This is what you always dreamed a safari experience might be.
