Activities at Motswiri Camp
The waterways and lagoons of Selinda are ruled by hippos, while elephant, buffalo, lechwe, and many more herbivorous species flock to the banks to drink and feed on the lush vegetation. Boating safaris make for incredible sunset cruises and offer views from the water, unique to this area.
Motswiri operates on 120 000 acres of pristine Selinda Reserve. Game drives offer the opportunity to encounter big game and explore this unique and diverse area, but during the wet season the area available to drive is limited.
Riding safaris are fine-tuned and highly professional with specially acclimatised horses and guides. There are not more than 6 guests to a group, accompanied by a lead and back-up guide. Riding competency is a requirement, and riders must be older than 12. Up to 6 hours are spent in the saddle per day, broken up by refreshment stops.
A mekoro is a traditional dug-out canoe, steered by a practiced poller. This is one of the most famous Okavango Delta activities, and truly an experience close to nature. Cruises take place in the lagoons and waterways in the Selinda Reserve and offer an opportunity to unwind, bird watch, and watch elephants and other game on the banks.
Walking trails are for groups no bigger than 6 guests, led by an armed guide. This is about tracking, searching for specific game, bird watching, detailed study of flora and fauna, or can be interspersed with fishing and swimming. Guides will tailor the walking trails to suit guests’ interest.
