Selinda Explorers Camp is an ideal location for those guests that want to experience the wildlife offering of Botswana in a very private setting. Just one and a half hours west of Selinda main camp, Selinda Explorers Camp is poised in a remote, treasured location on the famous Selinda Spillway. As the lifeline of the Selinda Reserve, the Selinda Spillway is a crucial gathering point for the wildlife of this pristine 320,000-acre Reserve. The intention of Selinda Explorers Camp is to offer the same quality of wildlife experience, while allowing guests to explore outside of the vehicle, by foot and canoe. This classic camp, consisting of four custom-designed tents, transports you back to authentic safaris, but with a modern twist and hospitality. Accommodating a maximum of 8 guests, each of the tents are designed in the style of the early explorers, with campaign–style furniture, glass decanters, Persian rugs, flush toilets, copper sinks and bucket showers. Subtly placed under the shade of the riverine forest, the camp is designed in the style of the early explorers both in philosophy and practice. As a romantic touch, brass hipbaths can be portered to a nearby sand bank on the banks of the Spillway. And personal hammocks adorn each verandah. Whiling away afternoons under the canopy of jackelberry and mangosteen trees, interspersed with walks and canoeing, make this a respite from the ‘daily grind’ of a traditional safari. Activities concentrate on getting closer to nature: guided walking and canoeing, and both day and night game drives. Most importantly, this is a place of impromptu, where you will act on a whim and let the wildlife take the lead. Typically, early morning and late afternoon to evening are prime times, but a full day out on canoe or walks are also an option for those wanting to explore further. No two experiences are the same and Selinda Explorers Camp is designed around the concept of camaraderie coupled with exceptional wildlife viewing and the freedom to explore. Its small size, prime location and flexibility make it a notable addition to more traditional itineraries.
