Selinda Concession, Botswana

The Selinda Concession covers 1,350km2 of wilderness, which stretches southeast from the Linyanti River towards the Okavango Delta and encompasses vast floodplains fragrant with wild sage and seasonal wetlands with tall reeds and papyrus.

There are tiny palm islands where baboons sit on termite mounds, and the sparkling Linyanti Lagoon with resident hippo and flocks of pinkbacked pelicans.

Wildlife of Selinda

Selinda has excellent resident game, including many antelope (roan, sable, giraffe, reedbuck and red lechwe) which are joined in June by large herds of zebra and wildebeest. It’s an excellent reserve for cheetah, spotted hyena and large prides of lion. Selinda has several resident prides, many of which number twenty or more and are frequently found hunting hippo. With two packs of wild dog in the area it is one of Botswana’s best reserves for viewing this rare animal. Finally, from June onwards buffalo and breeding herds of elephant frequent the reserve, attracted by the water.

There are two permanent camps in the reserve, Selinda Camp and Zibalianja Camp and two walking camps. All are privately owned and have friendly and excellent guides.

Selinda Walking Trails

The Selinda Reserve has expert walking guides and is Botswana’s best reserve for walking safaris. There are two small mobile camps, Mokoba and Tshwene, which have three tents each, hot bucket showers and open air dining rooms under trees.

The camps are about eight kilometres apart and guests can walk from one to the other, as well as to Selinda or Zibalianja Camp.

On a morning’s walk you might track elephant and have tea and biscuits on a termite mound. Accompanied by both guides and trackers, the walking safaris are well organised and rewarding.
