Selinda Camp

Taking advantage of its prime location overlooking the spillway for which it is named, Selinda Camp offers a list of thrilling activities perfectly suited for this area.  Selinda Camp is characterized by its game-rich floodplains which are host to a variety of bird life (300+), antelope, zebra, cheetah, wild dog, lion and dry season elephant concentrations.   It is also home to some of the largest herds of elephant and buffalo left in Southern Africa, this powerful place is one of the last great bastions of the endangered African wild dog – lycaon pictus – the “painted wolf”.  Whether you’re interested in world-renowned fly fishing, casually cruising down the serene channels of the Delta or simply falling under the spell of this timeless wilderness while lounging on your deck, the camp creates both adventure and relaxation. Of course, game viewing is paramount here, and it seems everywhere you look in this remote paradise, the landscape is peppered with wildlife. In the morning, there are zebra, wild dog, cheetah, antelope, lion and elephants and over 300 species of birds, while during night drives the nocturnal creatures come in droves: serval, porcupine, springhare and possibly leopard. It’s no surprise, in this treasure trove of wildlife viewing, that the camp is owned by renowned wildlife documentarians Dereck and Beverley Joubert. With capacity for only a handful of guests (only nine tents ensure an intimate atmosphere), tranquility is a standard amenity at Selinda. The carefully considered details of the camp—en-suite tents include stone baths, authentic African décor, art gallery, wine cellar, spa and plunge pool, for a start—simply add to the alluring aura of this camp.   Early morning and late afternoon/early evening game drives in an open 4×4 vehicle, guided bush walks, boat-based activities when water levels permit and in-room massages.
