What’s the difference: Selinda sits in a huge private concession, we believe freedom to explore the bush from different angles is absolutely crucial. One cannot get a true feeling of anything unless you’ve seen it from foot, 4×4 and boat, and here you can do that. Selinda is excellent value for money and has one of our favourite bathtubs in Africa.
Selinda Camp Botswana is set on the banks of the eastern Selinda Spillway – the waterway linking Botswana’s Okavango Delta and its Linyanti and Kwando systems. A relaxed, yet luxury tented safari camp, Selinda Camp was completely rebuilt in 2007. It re-opened to much acclaim, due in part to its harmonious blend of classic tented bush camp style and contemporary amenities. The shaded camp is raised a metre off the ground affording extraordinary views over the Selinda Reserve’s prolific floodplains and savannas. Dotting the landscape is the ubiquitous borassus palm, where nesting birds roost and baboons spy. The extensive raised decks, surrounding both in the main lounge and the 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 tents is constructed of sturdy canvas, thatch roofing and 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 king bed. Ceiling fans, combined with roof vents, bring the African breeze in, and cool the surrounds. For moments of reflection, a writing desk and lounge furniture provide a private respite. The large private verandah, extending into the bush, provides each tent with a slice of it’s own private Africa. The extended en-suite dressing area and bathroom, accessible via sliding wood doors, allows for privacy or an open-air feel. The dual basin vanity, deep stone bath and antique shower embody luxury. Hot and cold water are in ample supply.
