Selinda Tented bush camp located along the Selinda Spillway in the Linyanti Concession of Botswana Set in the old African tradition, Selinda Camp is a small 12 bed camp under canvas, set in the natural splendour of the Selinda Spillway.

The double tier, thatched lounge area, with traditional campfire, offers excellent views of passing herds of game on their way to the water. Each spacious Meru tent is tastefully fitted with handmade furnishings and has en suite facilities with the showers fashioned into the natural surroundings. Superb cuisine and African hospitality make this camp an essential part of any safari.

The Selinda reserve offers a choice of exclusive safari experiences. In each camp, drives take place at dawn, afternoon and evening in seven seater open viewing 4X4 vehicles with professional guides. Roam the open floodplains of the Selinda reserve, both on and off road searching out the big game, sometimes stopping for short walks and a more detailed inspection of the surroundings. The Selinda is well-known for its hippo-killing lions, cheetah, wild dog and if you're lucky - a leopard on your night drive.
