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 eachhroom, 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.
