Selinda Explorers Camp is located on a remote stretch of the Selinda Spillway, close to the heart of the pristine 320,000-acre private Selinda Reserve. It used to have another home – the Selous game reserve in Tanzania – but was moved here in its entirety a few years ago and has never looked back since opening in 2012.
Under a canopy of towering jackalberry and mangosteen trees, the four custom-designed tents embody the philosophy of exploration, sitting squarely on the earth, connecting guests directly with the pulse of the wild. They’re spacious and stay true to the classic age of safari, when the journey was more important than the destination.
With the wildlife viewing activities mainly focused on guided walks and canoe trips followed by open vehicle game drives, this area is a wildlife hotspot which is home to huge herds of elephant and buffalo. It is here that lion, wild dog, sable and roan antelope are all spotted on a regular basis.
And because at Selinda Explorers Camp the focus is on walking, you will be seeing the small, incredibly interesting things often missed in vehicles.
