About Selinda Camp
Selinda Camp is built on a shady island overlooking the waters of the Selinda Spillway, an ancient waterway which is the focal point in a vast private concession in northern Botswana. With its large, game-rich floodplains, Selinda Camp offers a unique wildlife experience.
The nine large, luxury tents on extensive raised decks have exceptional views across endless floodplains. The en-suite bathrooms are uniquely "open air" with lots of natural light, yet screened and virtually bug-proof. Four-poster beds with mosquito nets and overhead fans form the center piece of each room, surrounded by furniture and artifacts collected from around Africa. The main areas comprise a series of expansive decks, and set apart is the photo/art gallery built above a temperature-controlled wine cellar. The Selinda is host to a wide variety of bird species (300+) and wildlife, including hippo, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, cheetah, wild dog, lion, plenty of elephant and several species of antelope. Night drives allow guests to see nocturnal species such as porcupine, spring hare, hyena and perhaps even the elusive leopard.

How to get there
Fly into Johannesburg, followed by a 2-hour international flight to Maun. Flying times from Maun to Selinda Airfield is a 45-minutes. The road transfer to camp from the airstrip is approximately 45-minutes, with time for game viewing en route. When water levels rise, boat for transfers may be used. This transfer is a combination of a 15-minute drive to the boat dock and then a 15-minute boat ride to camp.
When to go
Botswanaâs winter is during the British summer, and the weather is hot during the day, but it isn't a stifling heat, and can get cold at night. The summer months can be hot and humid and there is a chance of rain. Botswana has one rainy season which runs between mid-December and runs through to mid-March.
