With vintage furniture and a laidback atmosphere, Selinda Explorers aims to create the ambiance of those early days of European exploration. Helped, in part, by the remote location along the Selinda Spillway, in the beating heart of the 130,000-hectare Selinda Reserve - a stay here is a true expedition.
The Selinda Reserve has a reputation as one of the best safari destinations in the world and the land surrounding the camp can be explored by jeep, on foot and canoe (seasonal, when water levels are high enough), allowing you to pace yourself, soak up the landscape and encounter its native inhabitants in their natural habitats.
You’ll be sure to meet herds of elephant and buffalo, which are numbered in their thousands at Selinda. Other notable species to look out for include leopard, sable and roan antelope, as well as the rare and critically endangered African wild dog – one of the best predators on the continent.
You may also encounter the local lion prides: Wakupa Pride (four females, plus cubs) and the Selinda Pride (six female, plus cubs), both wander between the Selinda Reserve and the Kwara Concession. Keen birders may be able to spot the wings of a saddle-billed stork, or a fish eagle.
Between safari excursions, you’ll relax hammock-style under the shade of jackalberry and mangosteen trees. Explorers is a simple and luxurious camp that feels almost like a mobile camp, where you’ll be treated to the utmost comfort, whilst also feeling the spark of adventure.
In the evening, relax on floor cushions in the bar area, then take your dinner in the dining area or out under the celestial canopy of the Botswanan night sky.
