Open: Selinda Explorers Camp is open from March to the end of November, closing between December and February for the seasonal rains.  

Location: Selinda Explorers Camp is on the spillway in Selinda Reserve. It is a 45-minute drive from the Selinda airstrip. Flying times from Maun and Kasane are around 50 minutes.  

Rooms: There are 4 walk-in guest tents. Each has an attached, enclosed shower and flush toilet which are un-roofed. Hot water is provided on request. Inside the tent there is a dressing area with twin hand basins and hanging and shelf space for clothes. There is limited solar-powered lighting. The private shaded veranda has chairs and a hammock for relaxing in style. There are brass hipbaths which staff can set up by the water’s edge if you desire a romantic al fresco bath. 

Activities: The focus is on non-motorised safaris, so you’ll be going on guided walks and canoe rides in the spillway, though game drives by day and night are also possible. 

Facilities: The main area is made up of two large canvas-roofed tents - one for dining and the other a lounge/bar. They are open-sided, with a bright rugs underfoot, campaign furniture and large floor cushions to recline on. Dinner is often served out in the open and is followed by drinks round the campfire. On a hot day you can cool off with a swim in the clean waters of the spillway. The camp has a small generator to power batteries in emergency but it is recommended you bring a spare set to the camp. 

Meals are eaten together. 

Children: Children aged 10 years and over are welcome. 

This is a malaria area. 

There is no internet access or mobile coverage.
