Built on the banks of the Selinda Spillway, Selinda Explorers Camp provides an authentic tent camp experience.
Small and intimate, accommodations at the camp consist of four luxury custom-designed canvas tents for up to eight people with an optional guide’s tent available as well. With an emphasis on a clean and classic look the tents are decorated with beautifully detailed campaign style furniture made from recycled hard woods and soft furnishings from Zanzibar and the East. Each tent is made up of two rooms including a relaxing lounge area. The private bustani bathroom features hot water bucket showers and flush toilets. The private veranda is the perfect spot to unwind and watch nature amble by. An even more romantic way to bathe is in a brass hipbath set up on a nearby sandbank on the edge of the Selinda Spillway under the stars. Other amenities include a fan, in-room safe, dressing gowns, and tea and coffee.
The camp is situated in the 320,000 acre Selinda Reserve of northern Botswana and is built on the banks of the Selinda Spillway, about one hour west of its sister camp, Selinda. The campsite sits in prime predator habitat. Lions, leopards, cheetahs, and packs of African wild dogs hunt these parts regularly. The reserve also plays home to giraffe, buffalo, and wide variety of antelope. At the peak of the dry season, Selinda Reserve has been known to have over 9,000 elephants. In addition to which, the spillway’s banks are a bird-watchers’ heaven.
