Selinda Adventure Trail

Itinerary Overview

This itinerary incorporates the Selinda Adventure Trail, an exhilarating journey exploring the Selinda spillway and surrounding riverine forests, floodplains and open savannah. Depending on water levels you will either travel by foot or a combination of walking and canoeing.  Nights are spent camping in dome tents, which are rustic by nature, but are furnished with comfortable bedrools and quality linen and towels.

This trail operates from April to September for a maximum of eight people.

Morning arrival and connecting flight to Maun and continue by light aircraft to Selinda Explorers Camp for a one night stay on full board basis with local drinks, park fees and game activities included.

Located on the banks of the Selinda Spillway in the Selinda Reserve, this classic camp, consists of four custom- designed tents and transports us back to authentic safaris, but with a modern twist and hospitality. The custom- designed semi-permanent tents consist of two rooms plus verandah, as well as a private open air ‘bustani bathroom’ with hot water bucket showers and flush loo. All tents are at ground level, including the main lounge and dining area. This is an unassuming camp, light on its footprint but heavy on its experiential luxury. The atmosphere of the lodge is one of bush elegance with relaxed bohemian style, complemented by attentive staff, private professional service and fabulous food.
