Selinda Explorers Camp is poised in a remote, treasured location on the famous Selinda Spillway, under canopies of jackelberry and mangosteen trees. As the lifeline of the Selinda Reserve, the Selinda Spillway is a crucial gathering point for the wildlife of this pristine 320,000-acre Reserve. This classic camp, consisting of four custom-designed tents, transports guests back to authentic safaris, but with a modern twist and hospitality. Each of the four walk-in tents is expansive; however, in keeping with a bit of traditional safari, the en-suite flush loo and shower are attached and enclosed, but under the stars. Hot/cold water is provided by jug on demand. The double-vanity copper vanities and dressing make for spacious accommodation. Stylishly decorated with campaign-style furniture, decanters of cognac, Persian rugs brass hipbaths and persona hammocks adorn each verandah, the décor pays homage to the roots of safari.
The Selinda Reserve is centred on the famous (seasonal) Selinda Spillway, which connects the Okavango Delta in the south with the Linyanti systems in the east. In years of abundant water, It flows into the Zibadianja lagoon, then through the Savute channel and eventually ends at the Savute marsh.In balance with the wild location of Selinda Explorer’s, the camp is ecologically sensitive with 100% solar power, greywater treatment and bore-hole water for drinking. Activities concentrate on getting back to nature with an emphasis on guided walking, with day and night game drives also available. It is a wildlife hot spot, with huge herds of elephants and buffalo, lion, wild dog, sable and roan antelope all frequently spotted. On safari it is possible to see a tremendous diversity of species, with particular emphasis on the smaller things only seen outside of a vehicle.It is closed from December to February and access via light aircraft to Selinda airstrip. Activities are focused on game drives. During periods of high water levels, canoeing may be possible but not guaranteed.
