Wow! We really can't say enough good things about our three night stay here. Selinda was by far our favorite camp of the three we stayed at during our time in Botswana. The camp itself, set on the spillway, is lovely and our tent was beautifully appointed. We loved the giant tub! Selinda's staff is top notch, with everything running... More

What a wonderful experience! We stayed 3 nights at Selinda, and we enjoyed meeting our diverse fellow travelers, who were serious photographers and interested in wildlife. Our guide, O.B. was fantastic - skilled, patient, teaching us so much and leading us to wonderful game-viewing experiences. He really IS "OB-wan." We wanted to stay longer and can't wait to return!

The accommodation borders on luxurious, the staff are professional & very welcoming & accommodating to ones needs. The meals are excellent, from pre-dawn continental stye breakfast to full after game breakfast, to buffet lunch & dinner in the open. The drinks are included. Our guide was magnificent & the game viewing outstanding.

We absolutely LOVED Selinda. The hosts Melanie and Grant are awesome. The food was terrific and every need was met. We were treated like royalty and our "tent" was luxurious and cozy in the Southern hemisphere winter. Our guide, OB, was superb. We saw a plethora of wildlife, including animals that are often hard to view like cheetah and wild... More

I don't recall having to ask for anything at Selinda. The camp is so well run that the friendly staff seems to anticipate what you want. Accommodations are first class, and of course the wildlife drives are wonderful. Health note: the roads at this camp and others are "off road". Lots of bumps, twisting and turning. It's inevitable.
