This is a fantastic camp! The staff are very welcoming and well trained. The rooms are amazing with wildlife right outside and have everything you need and more. The guides are expert trackers and we never had a slow day. Predators in particular are in abundance. We were made to feel very special during our stay there.

Arrival by boat heightens the initial impact of any camp, and Selinda is no exception. Then, to be met on the steps to the camp by such a warm and smiling team, waving and welcoming us in to this beautiful haven, made it such a visceral, emotional moment. Like coming home. From beginning to end, the team, the camp, the... More

My husband and I visited Selinda last week on our second trip to Southern Africa for safari. Our guide was Stanley and he was amazing. We absolutely loved our experience with him, he was knowledgeable, informative, hilarious, and made every moment interesting, exciting, or informative. We saw so much wildlife with Stanley, and also learned so much about Botswana, the... More

We were delighted with our Selinda experience. Our guide, OB, was outstanding, and the entire staff was very friendly and efficient and accommodating!! Game sightings were abundant and our boating excursions were great fun. Our tent was commodious & well appointed, and our meals were delicious and the wine was quite nice! We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Selinda!!!

The staff went above and beyond to take care of our every need. Our guide Stanley was funny, friendly and incredibly knowledgeable, he offered to take us out for a full day game drive instead of returning to camp in the middle of the day and he even served us lunch "in the bush" under a tree and allowed. Our... More

We spent 3 nights in Selinda as part of our honeymoon in July. We had a fantastic time, animal viewing was very good - numerous lions, honey badger during the day, wild dog, 20 giraffe in one setting, etc, etc. I was slightly surprised, however, that there wasn't more game in greater volume. Joseph, our guide, was excellent. A real... More

Selinda is a great camp - and the fact that it was a hunting reserve turned safari camp intrigued me. I have followed Beverly and Derek Joubert's work, and I was really looking forward to spending time at Selinda. That said, the guide that I had (Stanley) was completely unable to emotionally connect with the three guests (all of us... More

We visited 3 camps while in Botswana and am happy that we saved the best, Selinda, for last. Everyone was professional yet friendly. The setting was exquisite. Our guide, Joseph, was great! I only wish we had stayed longer than our 3 nights so we could have taken a day to just relax around the camp.
