ABOUT SELINDA CAMP
Selinda Camp is set on the banks of the eastern Selinda Spillway - the waterway linking Botswana's Okavango Delta and its Linyanti and Kwando systems. A relaxed, yet luxury tented safari camp, Selinda Camp was completely rebuilt in 2007. It re-opened to much acclaim, due in part to its harmonious blend of classic tented bush camp style and contemporary amenities. The shaded camp is raised a metre off the ground affording extraordinary views over the Selinda Reserve's prolific floodplains and savannas. Dotting the landscape is the ubiquitous borassus palm, where nesting birds roost and baboons spy. The extensive raised decks, surrounding both in the main lounge and the tents, allow guests to enjoy a meal or a relaxing afternoon while still enjoying wildlife viewing. There is a hardly a moment in camp where there isn't an animal in sight.
Game drives are fruitful with a variety of antelope, hippo, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, elephant and buffalo to be seen. Predator viewing is exceptional including lion, leopard, wild dog and cheetah.
