Selinda Camp

A harmonious blend of classic and contemporary

Selinda Camp rests on the banks of the eastern Selinda Spillway in the 320,00-acre Selinda Reserve of northern Botswana. This prime location is deep with in rich wildlife territory. Selinda Camp is a relaxed, yet luxurious tented safari camp and has established itself as one of the gems in the region with a harmonious blend of a classic tented bush camp interwoven with contemporary amenities.

The shaded camp affords extraordinary views over the Selinda Reserve’s prolific floodplains and savannas. Dotting the landscape is commanding borassus palms, where nesting birds roost and baboon spy. The extensive raised decks, surrounding both the main lounge and guest 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.

Each of Selinda Camp’s nine spacious, sturdy canvas tents are shaded with thatch roofing and are raised on wooden decks. Comfortable three-quarter sized beds dressed in fine linen are draped with flowing mosquito nets to complete the romantic atmosphere. Each bed can be joined seamlessly to create a grand extra-large double bed. Ceiling fans, combined with roof vents, bring the African breeze in, cooling the surrounds. For moments of reflection, a writing desk and lounge furniture provide a private respite. A large private verandah, extends into the bush and provides each tent with a slice of it’s own private Africa. Selinda‚Äôs little surprise is the extended en-suite dressing and dual basin vanity area and bathroom complete with a deep stone bath and antique shower – accessible via sliding wood doors, for privacy or an open-air feel and guaranteed luxury.

If the cool shade of the thatch simply isn’t enough to quell the midday heat, then a plunge pool is tucked away from the main area. Offering privacy and lush surrounds, it is a fabulous afternoon retreat. In-room massages are available (at additional cost).
