Selinda Camp Game Viewing and Wildlife Activities
The Selinda Reserve is characterized by its game-rich floodplains which are host to a variety of antelope, zebra, giraffe, cheetah, wild dog, lion and plenty of elephant. Game drives are fruitful with a variety of antelope, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe and buffalo to be seen. Predator viewing is exceptional including the hippo-killing lions of Selinda, leopard, wild dog and cheetah.
The Selinda Reserve is blessed with a variety of habitats – wide open savannah dotted with attractive palm trees; thirst-quenching waterways surrounded by dry woodland and then the river systems and floodplains themselves that draw thousands of animals to it, as they are forced to quench their thirst in the dry season along these waterways.
The activities at Selinda Camp are centred on game-rich floodplains of the savannahs and the Linyanti marshes as well as the Zibadianja Lagoon, which in turn becomes the source of the Savuti Channel. Activities revolve around morning, afternoon and night game drives with experienced professional guides in custom built 4×4 Land Cruisers. Short walks from camp are encouraged. Accompanied by an armed professional guide (all walking guides are in possession of a Botswana “Full Professional Guide” license), these walks give guests the chance to “touch the Earth” and be introduced to some of Africa’s less prominent. The Selinda is host to a wide variety bird species (300+) and wildlife, including several species of antelope, hippo, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, cheetah, wild dog, lion and plenty of elephant. Night drives allow guests to see such nocturnal species as the small cats, porcupine, springhare, hyena and perhaps even the elusive leopard.
