Selinda Camp Location
Selinda Camp is is a comfortable tented safari camp in The
Selinda Reserve and situated on the banks of the eastern Selinda Spillway
between the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park. The Selinda Reserve
joins the Okavango Delta with the Linyanti/Kwando waterways, the river
systems close to the eastern boundary of Chobe National Park. The
Reserve follows the Selinda Spillway, a dry river that connects the
Okavango to the Chobe River. The Spillway flows only in years of high
floods and high rainfall. The Selinda, covers some 1350 square kilometres.
The camps are small and personal, where only a handful of guests can
experience a big game safari in the finest African tradition. Selinda
Camp is owned and operated by Linyanti Explorations and is the sister
camp to Zibalianja Camp, also located nearby in The Selinda. Selinda
is a derivative meaning "many small pools of water" in the
Khoesan language of northern Botswana.
