12 of us visited Selinda Camp and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. All of the staff were warm and welcoming - Noxy, Bessie, Maggie, Gerard, Michele, and I'm forgetting them all. It was a different experience than at Duba and so was nice for comparison. The food was excellent! Our guides were fantastic. Obie was so friendly and we rode with...

Selinda was the second camp we visited after our four nights at Duba. The differences in the site as well as the game were interesting. The entire staff welcomed us as we pulled into the camp, making us feel special. As a group of 12, we had the entire camp to ourselves. It was like our own little world. Spike...

My wife and I spent 2 nights at Selinda camp during our honeymoon. What an amazing time!! I don't know if Selinda considers itself a luxury camp (I know they share a space with a more luxurious Zarafa camp), but it sure felt like it! The camp itself was beautiful. Each common area was better than the last. It had...

The staff, service, rooms and guides were all very good at this lodge. Hobo from management and our guide Spike need special mention.

We started our adventure at Selinda Camp with a flight on Mack Air and a stop at Duba Plains en route. The plane was quite hot with not much leg room, and we arrived at the Selinda airstrip somewhat late. So it was good to get out of the plane and into our Range Rover with our guide, Spike, and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Selinda Camp looks out onto the Selinda Spillway, a unique seasonal waterway that links the Okavango Delta with the wildlife-rich floodplains of the Linyanti marshes. Selinda Camp's nine spacious tents (including a family unit) are tucked away into the natural vegetation with wonderful views of palm-studded floodplains. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom and veranda. The main area is attractive, cool and under thatch and comprises dining, lounge and bar areas with spectacular views. Set apart from the main area is the photo and art gallery next to the camp's 500-bottle wine cellar, open-air deck, plunge pool and traditional campfire area. The Selinda Spillway winds its way through the Selinda Reserve and forms a magnet for the wildlife of the region. The area is thus an all-year-round wildlife viewing destination with large concentrations of elephant, buffalo, antelope, lechwe, giraffe, zebra, kudu, cheetah, wild dog, lion and leopard, with excellent birding of over 300 species in both the marshes and the dry country. Morning and afternoon-into-night game drives in custom-built 4x4 Land Cruisers with Guided nature walks, boating and seasonal fly-fishing ... more   less
