Ideal for friends or families seeking an intimate and exclusive safari experience, Okavango Explorers Camp invites you to make this wilderness retreat your own.

Spanning 130,000 hectares, the Selinda Reserve is renowned for its abundant predator and elephant populations. Okavango Explorers Camp is strategically located along the southernmost stretch of the Selinda Spillway, boasting access to some of the region's highest concentrations of wildlife.

Lions, leopards, and wild dogs roam these lands, while giraffes, buffaloes, and rare antelopes such as roan, sable, and eland add to the diversity. During the dry season, the reserve becomes a haven for elephants, with over 9,000 congregating along the river system in late September. Bird enthusiasts will also be delighted by the phenomenal birdlife that thrives in this area.
