WELCOME TO SELINDA ADVENTURE TRAIL
The Selinda Adventure Trail is an exploration safari charting a 4-day / 3-night course along the Selinda Spillway, an ancient waterway that links the Okavango Delta with the Linyanti wetlands, flowing through the remote woodlands of the 130,000 hectare Selinda Reserve. Along the route expect to come across the diverse species that inhabit the reserve from some of Botswana’s largest herds of buffalo and elephant to wildebeest, zebra, roan antelope and maybe even a lion, leopard or African wild dog. It is also a birder’s paradise with over 300 species possibly seen.
The Adventure Trail is a combination of canoeing and walking or, as water levels can vary annually, a pure walking safari. No previous canoeing or walking safari experience required but participants must be fit enough to paddle their own canoes and walk for several hours at a time. Even when on a canoe safari, each day includes at least a short walk.
The three nights are spent in fly-camps along the Spillway. Staff move the camp ahead of guests so you can expect to end each day by walking or paddling into camp to find that a roaring fire and your gin and tonic await. Accommodation includes Kodiak tents large enough for two people and complete with cots and comfortable bedding. Screened bucket showers with hot and cold water are also supplied.
All trips are led by an expert guide with an intimate knowledge of the area and have a maximum of 8 guests. The Selinda Adventure Trail is perfect for active travelers, groups of family or friends truly and defines adventure, bringing you close to nature and immersing you in the wilderness.
