**As of December 2019 this lodge has now permanently closed** Motswiri translates to leadwood in Setswana, and these silvery-green leaved trees line the banks of the Selinda Spillway on which the camp is located. The landscape in this far western corner of Botswana's Selinda Reserve varies from woodland to open floodplains; it feels part of the Okavango Delta system. The camp was taken over in 2010 by a small team who has enormous experience in Botswana's safari industry. They switched its focus from hunting (which stopped here some years previously) to walking, horseriding and water-based activities.

Our view of Motswiri Camp

Motswiri Camp is a remote and secluded little camp with a laid-back approach and great guiding. A diverse range of environments leads to a very good range of game species – although its game densities aren't as high as in some of the neighbouring areas to the south and east. That said, Motswiri's focus on walking and riding, with perhaps the occasional canoe trip, do lend themselves to a safari that's a refreshingly different from Botswana's norm. We loved it!
