STOP PRESS: The Selinda Adventure Trail stopped operating in 2019, however if this sort of experience appeals to you, please do get in touch and we can discuss other adventurous options.
A safari adventure with a big difference, this four-day/three-night Selinda Adventure Trail will see you navigate the ancient pathways of the Selinda Slipway; the channel that links the Okavango Delta with the Linyanti wetlands.
You’ll trek through remote Selinda Reserve woodlands on foot, leaving the comfort and safety of a safari jeep behind, your senses heightened as you become exposed to the wild. When you reach the water’s edge, you’ll jump into a canoe to paddle your way along the remaining flows of Selinda.
Along the way, you’ll be sharing the space with some of the country’s largest herds of elephant and buffalo, big game favourites such as roan antelope, zebra and wildebeest, as well as over 300 colourful and diverse bird species.
Keep your eyes peeled, though, as where there is an abundance of herbivores, carnivores are never too far behind. Predators in this region include lion, leopard and African wild dog, the latter being one of the rarest and most endangered species on the continent.
Depending on the time of year and the Delta’s water levels, the trail will be land-only, or a combination of canoeing and walking, so a level of fitness for several hours of walking a day, as well as paddling your own canoe, is required.
With space for a maximum of eight participants and intrepid fly-camp stops along the way, a Selinda Adventure Trail experience is a true immersion in nature.
Traverse the bush and Delta water channels by day, then rest by the campfire each night, listening to the sounds of Selinda’s native nocturnal inhabitants as you fall asleep under the stars.
