This trip is perfect for groups of safarists who are keen on observing high densities of game! Featuring two superb properties, it takes you to the spectacular Selinda area followed by the beautiful Okavango Delta. It’s great for couples too.

The adventure begins at Selinda Explorers Camp, an expedition-style property in a remote location next to the Selinda Spillway within North Botswana’s Selinda Reserve. Next, you’ll stay at Shinde Camp, a classic camp in the Okavango Delta’s northern region. Both properties offer exclusive-use options, so please contact us for further information if this appeals.

During your stay at Selinda Explorers, you’ll enjoy vehicle and walking safaris, in addition to canoeing trips if you visit the camp during the months from May to September. Shinde offers expertly guided game drives, night drives, walking safaris, motorboat trips, mokoro excursions, and, from March to December, fishing too! In both the Selinda Reserve and the Okavango Delta, wildlife concentrations are outstanding from April until November, so do get in touch if you’d like to discuss taking this trip earlier than our recommended months.

On Day 1 of your group trip, you’ll touch down at Maun Airport and fly from here to Selinda Airstrip, before travelling to Selinda Explorers Camp via shared road transfer.

This property is located on a remote stretch of the Spillway. It has an adventurous feel, resembling a mobile camp yet boasting the style and luxury we associate with permanent lodges. The communal lounge and dining room occupy one tent each. Their interiors include immense floor cushions, brass lamps, and furnishings that recall the explorer era! This theme continues into the camp’s guest accommodation. Each of the four Meru-style tents is also very sumptuous, with furnishings that really take you back to the campaign days. We love the antique-y fans, classic writing desk, and twin brass sinks in the changing area! Every tent has open-air canvas-walled washing facilities too, comprising flush toilet and bucket shower. Activities from Selinda Explorers consist of morning and afternoon/evening game drives, guided walking safaris, and canoe trips (May–September). There’s plenty of wildlife to see here, such as lion, cheetah, buffalo, wild dog, lots of plains game, and more than 300 bird species!

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.

Each features a comfortable double or twin bedroom, a seating area, a smart en-suite shower room, and a private deck with spectacular views over open plains! Shinde provides a high-quality base camp from which to explore the North Delta. Activities include vehicle and walking safaris, motorboat trips, mokoro excursions, and fishing (March–December). Wildlife highlights comprise four of the Big Five, numerous smaller predators and herbivores, and hundreds of birds.
