This is one of Africa’s finest private reserves and home to only two camps (Selinda and Zarafa), which ensures that guests have large areas for game driving all to themselves. Selinda is a very high quality camp and good value for money compared to the other similarly priced camps in the Linyanti.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Selinda is located within the 320,000-acre Selinda Reserve of the Linyanti region in northern Botswana.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
The nine tents are made of canvas with thatched roofing. Each is a generous size, offering an ensuite dressing area with two basins and a bathroom complete with a deep stone bath and antique shower. Each tent is raised on a deck that extends into the bush, enabling guests to sit outside in complete privacy and watch animals wander by.
Game drives early in the morning and in the late afternoon are supplemented by boating safari and some fantastic walking. Lions, large herds of elephant and packs of wild dog may be seen by day, while aardvark and civet emerge at night. There’s a focus on photography in camp, as Selinda is owned by Dereck and Beverley Joubert, the famous filmmakers responsible for some of the finest wildlife films ever made.
Its previous owners ensured that this camp was regarded as the best walking operation in Botswana, and standards have not dropped. In summary, Selinda is well worth a visit!
