Why visit the Selinda Game Reserve?

A safari from a different perspective, this 3-night guided canoe journey explores the north-eastern fringes of the Okavango Delta and moves into the pristine Selinda Reserve. The ultimate in carefree exploration, the canoes carry everything necessary for a comfortable camp, stopping wherever the fancy takes you to spend the night in a fly camp. Feast on fresh meals eaten around a blazing campfire and slip into peaceful slumber beneath a bright blanket of stars.

Enjoy languid days on the water, stopping to watch wildlife coming down to drink as you glide serenely downstream, or hopping out for a quick exploration whenever an interesting animal or plant catches the guide’s eagle eye. Please note that guests paddle their own canoes, so a reasonable amount of fitness is required. Due to water levels, this safari is only available between August and October.

Why Visit?

  • The Selinda Reserve is one of Africa’s great wildlife reserves. Part of the Great Plains Conservation project, spearheaded by National Geographic photographers and filmmakers Derek and Beverley Joubert.
  • Selinda borders Linyanti to the East and the Kwando reserve to the North.
  • The Selinda Spillway is a usually dry channel that connects the Linyanti river system to the Okavango. On the rare occasion that these channels connect, Selinda springs to life with a game density that is hard to beat anywhere.
