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.

Set in one of the most pristine wilderness areas left on the planet, the Selinda Reserve, Selinda Camp sits on the Selinda Spillway connecting the Okavango Delta to the Linyanti and Kwando River systems. The private 130,000 hectare Selinda Reserve boasts elephants by the thousands, regular sightings of African wild dogs, and the famous Selinda Lion Pride, featured in the National Geographic film “Birth of a Pride” by Dereck and Beverly Joubert.

Selinda Camp represents the meeting place of three cultures, European, Mokololo, and Bayei. Spears, shields, and an African version of Robinson Crusoe is the enduring theme through the camp. Its architectural design elements centre around Water, Air, Earth, and Fire, all of which ground the design. Selinda Camp’s design pays homage first and foremost to water, with splashes of blue and crystal-clear swimming pools offering views over the equally immaculate Selinda Spillway to ease your arrival, usually by boat.

Experience & Activities

The safari drives, walks, boating, tracking, birding and other bespoke viewing activities are 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.


  • Suite: The camp has three expansive guest suites, each covered under thatch and large en-suite bathrooms, a large private veranda, and a private swimming pool. Each suite is unique, designed with its own colour palette and theme, including textures of rope, rooms under thatch, hammocks, lots of space, nautical elements, and salvaged wood.
  • 2-Bedroomed Suite: In addition to the three main tents, the Selinda Suite (like its fellow Zarafa Dhow Suite and the Duba Plains Suite), consists of a two-bedroom tented villa with expansive shared lounge, deck and plunge pool. The Selinda Suite operates exclusively and guests enjoy their own private vehicle, safari guide, chef, manager/butler and entrance to their residence.
