Selinda Explorers Camp

Selinda Explorers is an intimate tented camp overlooking the Selinda Spillway in the exclusive Selinda Reserve in the Greater Linyanti region.

Selinda Explorers is a real gem offering a very exclusive and authentic bush experience. Whilst the tents are very comfortable and have an air of quiet sophistication, the emphasis of a visit is on the outdoor experience which includes game drives into the core big game areas of the wonderful Selinda concession, unlimited walking, night drives and canoeing on the Selinda Spillway (when water levels allow – usually June to September). The camp has a lovely and very exclusive location, though please note that as the camp was originally designed as a walking camp, the location is not totally perfect if you only wish to game drive (30 minute drive through mopane woodland to and from the core game viewing areas of the reserve). Whilst the camp has gradually changed into a game viewing camp to suit market requirements, and game drives can be very productive, in our opinion Explorers is still most suitable to travellers who love the wilderness, enjoy walking (and canoeing in season), appreciate good guiding and are looking for a very quiet and intimate camp environment.
