This safari involves the Linyanti, Khwai Private Reserve, and the Okavango Delta, and it uses some of our favourite camps in the country! You’ll enjoy day and night game drives, walks, boating, and mokoro rides – Botswana’s full range of activities.

The first property you’ll visit is Selinda Explorers Camp, in the Linyanti region. A top camp at YZ, one reason why we love it is the setting, amidst lovely riverine woods! Next up is Khwai Private Reserve’s Machaba Camp, which overlooks the Khwai river and is close to the predator-rich Moremi Game Reserve. Finally, you’ll head to Shinde Camp. This property has a wonderful location in the northern region of the Okavango Delta area, on an island on the edge of a lagoon. Together, these three camps provide a super safari with a great social feel!

Selinda Explorers offers expertly guided game drives, walking safaris, and weather-dependent canoeing trips. Machaba also provides guided drives and walks, as well as mokoro excursions and community visits. And once you’ve arrived at Shinde, you’ll enjoy day and night game drives, walks, motorboat trips, mokoro rides, and even fishing! (Please note, fishing is available from March to December every year.)

On Day 1 of your trip, you’ll touch down at Maun Airport and fly out to Selinda Airstrip. From here, you’ll have a shared road transfer to Selinda Explorers Camp, which has a fabulously remote location within the Selinda Reserve. Positioned in the shade of trees, the camp’s two communal tents have amazing views of open plains and the Selinda Spillway. As there are just four Meru-style guest tents, this property has a very exclusive feel. The décor brings to mind the explorers era, and the camp’s broad range of activities guarantees that you will get to know the Linyanti really well during your time here. Day and night game drives, walking, canoeing… when it comes to classic safari, Explorers is one of the best! Common sightings include lion, wild dog, numerous antelope species, and immense herds of elephant and buffalo.

Board basis and activities:
All-inclusive accommodation, featuring all meals, a selection of alcoholic and soft drinks, all scheduled wildlife activities, transfers between the camp and Selinda Airstrip, and a laundry service.

There are ten tents, all very comfortable and benefiting from a private veranda. Activities focus on morning and evening game drives, but you can also enjoy walking safaris and mokoro excursions. As the camp has access to both the Khwai reserve and Moremi, guests can expect to see a real wealth of wildlife, not least four of the Big Five, numerous smaller mammals, and ample birdlife! Community visits are also possible here.
