Welcome to Selinda Camp

  • 9 beautifully appointed tented suites including one family room 
  • Located within the rich and diverse 320,000 acre Selinda concession 
  • Beautiful views overlooking the Selinda Spillway 
  • Great variety of activities led by some of the best guides in Botswana 
  • Huge herds of elephant and buffalo with good sightings of wild dog 

Selinda Camp is the most classic offering of the Great Plains Conservation stable. The company is owned by Derek & Beverly Joubert, both National Geographic filmmakers, with a passion for Botswana and the conservation of its wildlife. Their commitment to authentic safaris really shines through in the attention to detail here, whether it be the elegant Persian rugs or the beautiful artefacts collected during their travels. 

The camp was designed with the elements in mind. Splashes of blue and the crystal-clear pool look out over the waterways of the Selinda Spillway. The billowing silks pay homage to the air and the breezes which ripple the endless sea of grasses. Earth is represented by the lovingly cooked meals and the evening camp fire completes the ethos of being in harmony with nature. 

The 320,000 Selinda concession on which it is located is absolutely teaming with life. During the dry season in particular huge numbers of elephant and buffalo are commonplace as are the predators which share their domain. Wild dog sightings are especially good here. 

Being situated on a private concession means that game drives and night drives are both possible here as well as good walking safaris. The camp is situated on the Selinda Spillway, which has been flowing consistently for the last decade and is therefore able to offer boating safaris when water levels permit. All activities are expertly led by the Great Plains guides, who we believe to be the best Botswana has to offer.

We recommend combining Selinda Camp with Duba Plains or another classic camp in the Okavango Delta for a complete Botswana safari.
