Nestled on the banks of the Selinda Spillway, as it merges with the Linyanti River, Selinda Camp offers a remarkable retreat in one of our planet's last pristine wilderness areas. Set within the private 130,000-hectare Selinda Reserve, this enchanting camp is renowned for its abundant wildlife, including some of Africa's largest elephant populations. Immerse yourself in the true spirit of Africa as you explore the remote and captivating surroundings teeming with a diverse range of species and rare animals.

As a proud member of Relais and Chateaux, Selinda Camp embodies the convergence of three cultures: European, Mokololo, and Bayei. The camp's design draws inspiration from the thatched village of Sangwali, creating a captivating ambience that reflects the enduring themes of spears, shields, and an African version of Robinson Crusoe.

At Selinda Camp, immerse yourself in the natural wonders of Botswana, creating lifelong memories as you explore the wilderness and indulge in the finest accommodations and hospitality.

Step into Selinda Camp and embark on a sensory journey that celebrates the elements of water, air, earth, and fire. The architectural design elements harmoniously blend with nature, showcasing the beauty of the surroundings.

The camp pays homage to water, with crystal-clear swimming pools and breathtaking views of the Selinda Spillway, often accessed by boat. Air is represented by billowing silks that adorn the ceilings of the lounge area, inspired by the gentle afternoon breezes that rustle through the nearby grasses. Earth is celebrated through the mouthwatering home-grown meals prepared in the camp's kitchens, using fresh and locally sourced ingredients. The vibrant flames of the evening fire complete the connection to nature's natural elements. Additionally, the design incorporates the fifth element, 'metal,' seamlessly blending into the camp's aesthetic.

Selinda Camp offers three expansive guest suites and a separate two-bedroom tented villa called the Selinda Suite. Each accommodation provides a comfortable and luxurious retreat, allowing you to relax and rejuvenate after a day of exploration. Immerse yourself in the wonders of nature through safari drives, guided walks, boating excursions, tracking experiences, birding expeditions, and other bespoke activities tailored to provide you with extraordinary wildlife encounters.
