Selinda safaris, tours & holiday packages
Unique wildlife experiences, exploration and exclusivity in northern Botswana
Selinda is a unique and moody wilderness, where constantly changing waterways and wild savanna play host to some of Africa's most dramatic animal interactions
Lions and hippos (even lions hunting hippos), a great concentration of elephants, a stable population of African wild dogs, wide untouched wilderness and a selection of unique camps ensure that your Selinda safari is really special. Dereck and Beverly Joubert are renowned National Geographic filmmakers who know this 130,000-hectare landscape intimately. They have combined their talents with like-minded people in the tourism industry to create ecologically sensitive camps that are run according to a strict code of ethics, providing conscience-free yet superbly comfortable places to stay.
"Having guided and travelled in Botswana for 10 years and seen very special places and dramatic animal interactions, I rate Selinda among the top of all my experiences. I experienced it when it was still a hunting concession and the animals were scarce and very skittish, a far cry from the pristine wilderness area and wildlife refuge it is today.
More on Selinda holidays
Selinda is a private reserve that is centered on the famous Selinda Spillway, which flows through the concession from east to west, linking the far reaches of the Okavango Delta in the south with the Linyanti systems in the east and disappearing into the Savute Marsh. The reserve is a place of rising and falling water and wild savanna, a place where it feels as though you've returned to a far more ancient time. The landscape is pristine. Once the haunt of trophy hunters, Selinda was unknown to the safari tourism trade until a few years ago, when hunting in the area was stopped. Now managed by passionate conservationists, Selinda has quickly become one of the most sought-after destinations in Africa. And as the reserve is privately owned, exclusive viewings are almost guaranteed. You can explore the land and waterway attractions on game drives and wilderness walks and in canoes – all in the capable hands of knowledgeable guides.
