Selinda Explorers Camp is part of the Great Plains Conservation stable. The company is owned by Derek & Beverly Joubert, both National Geographic filmmakers, with a deep passion for Botswana and the conservation of its wildlife. Their commitment really shines through in the attention to detail here, whether it be the classic Persian rugs or the beautiful antique furniture collected during their travels.
The camp was originally erected in Tanzania’s Selous Game Reserve before finding its final resting place in Selinda. The fact that there are only 4 mobile-style tents in camp assures you of an exclusive experience. With bucket showers and no running water, there is certainly an air of adventure but the staff are experts at creating an ambiance of luxury around you. This is one of the most faithful representations of an old pioneer safari that you will find anywhere – a genuinely authentic little camp.
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. The camp is situated on the Selinda Spillway, which has been flowing consistently for the last decade and is therefore able to offer the best canoe safaris in Botswana. 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 Explorers with Duba Plains in the Okavango Delta for a more luxurious experience at the end of your safari.
