Highlights

Accommodation

Selinda Camp is unique in its 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.

In addition to the three main suites, the separate 2-bedroomed Selinda Suite (like its fellow Dhow Suite at Zarafa and the Duba Plains Suite) consists of a two-bedroom tented suite. The Selinda Suite operates exclusively, as guests enjoy their private vehicle, safari guide, chef, manager/butler, and entrance to their residence.

 

Game Drives

While at Selinda Camp there is no set routine, the wildlife knows the most forgiving times of day, and we take its lead. Early morning, late afternoon and evenings are the prime game viewing times – it’s when the colors are vibrant, the sun is low and spirits are up. Setting out at dawn, when predators are active, our guides are as keen as the guests to discover the riches of each day in Selinda Camp Reserve.

Usually, once the sun is high and strong, we retreat with the herds to our midday resting post, Selinda Camp. Then, as the sun begins to wane again, we head out for the late afternoon to evening, searching for nocturnal wildlife and the action that comes with sunset. But nothing is regimented.

Guided Walks

Another huge benefit of staying within the Selinda Camp conservancies is that here guests are allowed to appreciate the stunning landscape on foot, peacefully, without the noise of engines. We highly recommend this unforgettable experience.

Talk to the managers to arrange a good time and location for a walk. Usually early morning or evening is the best time, as the middle of the day is too hot to venture out of the shade. Wear good walking shoes, a hat, and neutral coloured clothing so as not to alarm the wildlife, and take binoculars. Your guide will have water for you.

Young Explorers Program

This is a full syllabus of bush craft skills for young explorers. This is a complimentary program that follows in the footsteps of National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence, Dereck and Beverly Joubert. An extensive pack will be provided to eager children on arrival, so they can learn about animal calls, how to track wildlife, and other facts and figures about the wild.

At the end of a child’s stay, he/she will become a Young Explorer and Conservation Ambassador – ready to go out and tell the world about what they have learned and what they too can do to help protect this beautiful environment.
