Set in one of the most pristine wilderness areas left on our planet, the new Selinda Camp rests on the banks of Botswana’s Selinda Spillway as it enters the Linyanti River. The private 130,000 hectare Selinda Reserve boasts large elephant herds, regular sightings of the Selinda pack of African wild dogs, and the famous Selinda lion pride recently featured in the National Geographic film “Birth of a Pride” by Dereck and Beverly Joubert. The area has a sense of remoteness, a true spirit of Africa, and an excellent example of Botswana bush embodying various species and rare animals, offering the perfect safari experience in Botswana.
Unique in its design, the three expansive guest suites each features an indoor en-suite bathroom, a large private veranda with outdoor seating, and a private swimming pool. Every space enhances what Livingstone would have had, what he would have travelled with and found along with his expeditions. But beyond that, we go back to the Robinson Crusoe feel, including rope textures, suites under thatch, hammocks, lots of space, nautical elements, and salvaged wood.
In addition to the three main suites, the separate 2-bedroomed Selinda Suite (like its fellow Zarafa Dhow Suite and the Duba Plains Suite) consists of a two-bedroom tented suite. The Selinda Suite operates exclusively, as guests enjoy their private vehicle, safari guide, chef, manager/butler, and entrance to their residence.
The open vehicle safari drives, guided bush walks, boating, tracking, birding and other bespoke viewing activities are all designed to place you in front of the best wildlife the area has to offer. The unique one-on-one life-changing experiences include sightings from leopards to elephants and hippos and aim to ensure you tick off as many of the 200 or more bird species in the area as possible.
