Tucked away in a prime postition within the inimitable Selinda Reserve, Selinda Camp is a mere stone’s throw from the floodplains of the Linyanti Swamps – a veritable hotspot of activity when it comes to wildlife. This premier location is also the kind of place where adventurous travellers can truly soak up the natural charm of the area, while basking in the lap of luxury after a day of wildlife thrills. Boasting nine plush tents, all under thatched canopies, Selinda Camp provides spacious and elegantly decorated accommodation with an African feel – and each unit also comes with magnificent views of plains.
The luxurious en suite bathrooms comprise all the luxury amenities expected, as well as lavish stone baths to relax in, while the tents are furnished with soft linen, mosquito nets and cooling ceiling fans. In the elaborate main area, an array of wooden decks provide a comfortable space where visitors can unwind and enjoy delicious dinners and drinks with an undisturbed view of the breathtaking surrounds and stunning sunsets. There’s also a refreshing plunge pool, while relaxing massages and crackling campfires under starlit African skies complete the picture.
A plethora of game and rich birdlife can be explored on regular game drives – both at day and at night – along the floodplains and savannas. These trips are lead by friendly, experienced guides in open 4×4 vehicles and guests may very well expect to enjoy sightings of antelope, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, baboon, elephant and hippo, as well as predators like lion, leopard, cheetah and wild dog. Conditions permitting, the area can also be explored on foot or water – aided by Selinda Camp’s wonderfully knowledgeable guides.
A real treat around here is that it’s not uncommon for elephants to meander into the campsite – giving guests the chance to experience these gentle giants up close and personal. And when it comes to the abundant bird life around Selinda Camp, keen birders will not be disappointed. In a nutshell: Thanks to the friendly and helpful staff, immaculate accommodation, delicious food and stunning surrounds, Selinda Camp is all about treating guests to an unforgettable African safari.
