Selinda Camp

Linyanti Wetlands, Botswana

Platinum price level

Mango Opinion

We love the Linyanti Wetlands, and Selinda is a gem for location. The game viewing is spectacular and the private reserve offers the ultimate in flexibility of exclusive activities. This is a top spot for the rare wild dogs. With the most recent renovations, they halved the number of rooms and really upped the style with rates to match, so now Selinda is competing in the luxury space. 

Set in one of the most pristine wilderness areas left on our planet, the brand new Selinda Camp rests on the banks of the Selinda Spillway, as it enters the Linyanti River. The private 130,000-hectare Selinda Reserve boasts elephants by the thousands, regular sightings of the Selinda pack of African wild dogs as well as the famous Selinda Lion Pride recently feature in the National Geographic film “Birth of a Pride” by Dereck and Beverly Joubert. The area has a sense of remoteness, a true spirit of Africa, and is a great example of Botswana bush embodying a variety of species and rare animals. 

The camp has three expansive guest tents, each covered under thatch and with large en-suite bathrooms, large private veranda and private swimming pool. Each guest tents is unique, designed with its own color palette and theme. In addition to the three main tents, the Selinda Suite, consists of a two-bedroom tented villa. The Selinda Suite operates exclusively, as guests enjoy their own private vehicle, safari guide, chef, manager/butler and entrance to their residence.

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 for a unique one on one life changing experience, from leopards to elephants and hippos and aim to tick off as many as the 200 or more bird species in the area.
