Selinda Camp overlooks the Selinda Spillway, a unique seasonal waterway which links the Okavango Delta with the game-rich floodplains of the Linyanti Swamps.
Selinda Camp’s 9 spacious, luxury tents are erected under cool thatch canopies, with all units having panoramic views across palm-studded floodplains. Each tent has en-suite facilities, a stone bath being the highlight. The bathroom is uniquely “open air” with lots of natural light, yet is screened and virtually insect-proof. The tents are spacious and beautifully appointed with furniture and features that have been collected from around Africa. Four-poster mosquito nets and overhead fans are standard at Selinda Camp.
The main area comprises a series of expansive decks that invite guests to simply sit and soak up the spectacular views and wildlife surrounding Selinda Camp. The design of the main area is such that there is never a barrier to these breathtaking views of the Selinda Spillway: whether guests are relaxing in the lounge, having brunch under the cool shade of the uniquely designed thatched roof, or sampling the fine cuisine of a three-course dinner on the open “star deck”. Set apart from the main area is the photo/art gallery built above a temperature-controlled wine cellar and curio shop. Guests can also enjoy a small plunge pool and the traditional campfire.
Selinda Camp is characterised by its game-rich floodplains which are host to a variety of bird life (300+), antelope, zebra, cheetah, wild dog, lion and dry season elephant concentrations. Nocturnal species include serval, porcupine, springhare and possibly leopard. Daily activities at Selinda Camp revolve around morning, afternoon and night game drives with experienced, professional guides in custom-built 4×4 Land Cruisers. Short walks from camp accompanied by a guide are encouraged to get to know some of Selinda’s smaller creatures.
