Room types at Selinda Adventure Trail
Mobile Kodiak Tents
This safari is all about taking ourselves away from today’s world. The Selinda Spillway runs through a remote part of the private Selinda Reserve in northern Botswana, in areas where you will be completely removed from the modern world. We will be carrying all of the equipment on the canoes with us, or transporting them via vehicle when on the walking safari. Your camp sites will be of a rustic but comfortable nature. Walk in Kodiak tents are provided as they are comfortable and large enough for two
people. They are furnished with comfortable bedrolls and quality linen. There are safari ‘bucket showers’ with hot and cold water in the evenings and ‘long drop’ toilets.
Activities at Selinda Adventure Trail
Canoeing, Bush Walks, Game Drives (limited),
The Selinda Spillway is an ideal setting for this canoeing or walking adventure safari. The route begins downstream from the Selinda airstrip in the north-east of the Okavango Delta and migrates eastwards along the Selinda Spillway through the private 330 000-acre Selinda Reserve, ending near Selinda Explorers Camp.
DAY 1: On arrival at the starting point of the adventure trail along the spillway, your guide will brief the group, before taking guests on a short, late-afternoon walk or canoe paddle to aclimatise to
your surroundings before arriving at your first night in camp, where the evening is spent around the fire discussing the adventures that lie ahead.
DAY 2: After an early wake-up call, tea or coffee and a light breakfast is served, before we head off on foot or canoe along the Selinda Spillway enjoying the natural splendours of the Selinda Reserve as they appear before us. Dependant on water levels, most of the day will be spent canoeing, with a few stops before lunch is served en route to the fly camp for that night. A lunch stop is served en route and if the water levels are too low, the group will then head “inland”, exploring on foot, before arriving at our second camp which will be your base for the next two
DAY 3: An early breakfast fuels us for a morning of exploration as we head off on foot, to remote meanders of the complex Selinda Spillway. Expect to see antelope a plenty and large herds of elephant and buffalo; a truly humbling experience. The length of day is tailored around the wildlife in the areas, with cold refreshments and a lunch stop.
DAY 4: Our last morning is a final canoe or walk to the trail-end along the Selinda Spillway. From there we take a slow paced game drive allowing you to see as much wildlife as possible before you get to our airstrip. Once at the airstrip we share our highlights one final time and bid farewell to the adventure.
