Selinda Camp, Linyanti, Botswana

Set in one of the most pristine wilderness areas left on our planet, Selinda Camp rests on the banks of Botswana’s Selinda Spillway as it enters the Linyanti River. The area has a sense of remoteness, a true spirit of Africa. It is an excellent example of a perfect safari in Botswana, with the bush embodying various species and rare animals. The private 130,000-hectare Selinda Reserve boasts large elephant herds, regular sightings of the Selinda pack of African wild dogs, and the famous Selinda lion pride.

Unique in their design, the three expansive guest suites each feature an indoor en-suite bathroom, a large private veranda with outdoor seating, and a private swimming pool. Every space enhances what Livingstone would have had, what he would have travelled with and found along with his expeditions. But beyond that, we go back to the Robinson Crusoe feel, including rope textures, suites under thatch, hammocks, lots of space, nautical elements, and salvaged wood.

The open vehicle safari drives, guided bush walks, boating, tracking, birding, and other bespoke viewing activities are designed to place you in front of the best wildlife the area offers. The unique one-on-one life-changing experiences include sightings of leopards, elephants and hippos. Guests can also expect to tick off as many of the 200 or more bird species when on safari in Botswana.

The Great Plains Foundation’s Solar Mamas developed the initiative to address the lack of economic opportunities and electricity deficit in remote villages bordering Botswana’s Okavango Delta. Nine Solar Mamas left their villages in Botswana to attend a six-month solar power training program in India through Barefoot College International. They each returned home with the skills to build, install and maintain solar home lighting systems. These Solar Mamas are empowered to establish and run a business and provide sustainable energy for their community.
