About Motswiri Camp

Motswiri stands on the banks of the Selinda Spillway in the far western corner of Northern Botswana's Selinda Reserve. This beautiful and remote area combines the open flood plains of the Okavango Delta with the thick riverine forests lining the Selinda Spillway.

Motswiri Camp is located in the world renowned Selinda Reserve and operates safaris exclusively on over 120,000 acres of pristine, African bush. Due to the diversity of the vegetation, the birding is superb. The reserve is also home to giraffe, zebra, tsesebe, roan antelope, sable, lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and many elephant.

Wishing to get away from the conventional; Motswiri offers a unique, charming and comfortable base from which to explore some of Africa's remotest areas.

Motswiri offers five, large and tastefully appointed en-suite, classic meru tents all on raised decking. Each tent overlooks the Selinda Spillway where the elephants regularly come to bath in the afternoons. The tents are 5 metres x 7 metres in size and are positioned well apart from one another. Each tent has its own private bathroom, and large decked veranda. Families are welcome and there is a specially designed family unit. The main area of the camp offers a large, comfortable sitting area with separate dining. There is also a small plunge pool for those hot October afternoons.

Location

The reserve's diverse vegetation results in superb birding, and it is home to giraffe, zebra, tsessebe, lion, leopard, cheetah and the rare roan antelope, sable and wild dog. Many large herds of elephant and buffalo migrate through the reserve during the year.

The reserve is unusual in its clear definition between floodplains and permanently dry areas, making it uniquely suited to both riding and walking safaris. Whether you wish to spend your whole safari on a horse or on foot, or to mix the two, look forward to experiencing this unique and majestic part of Botswana.
