Selinda Adventure Trail
Linyanti and Selinda

For the adventure lover, the Selinda Adventure Trail is a chance to experience Botswana's remote wilderness through the eyes of its first and enterprising explorers. The trip charts the course of the ancient Selinda Spillway over five exhilarating days either on foot or by canoe or on foot. This all depends on the water levels at the time of travel. The canoeing experience entails a combination of canoe and walking safari exploring this pristine area. The pure-walking experience is an amazing, exclusively guided walking safari along exciting sections of the Spillway and inland portions of the famous Selinda Reserve.

All four nights are spent in mobile ‘fly’ camps along the Selinda Spillway. At night, your tented mobile camp is set up for you and although rustic, the tents are airy and comfortable and plenty large enough for two. There are safari ‘bucket’ showers with hot cold water and ‘long drop’ loos. The trail ‘chef’ prepares delicious meals over the open fire and a cold beer is always on hand! The days are spent paddling or walking along the Spillway and into the woodlands of the reserve, depending on which option is available at that time, with regular stops whenever there is something of interest to be seen. The Selinda Reserve is well known for some of Botswana’s largest herds of buffalo and elephant, roan antelope and African wild dog. Other possible sightings include cheetah, lion, leopard and variety of other species. It is also a birder’s paradise with over 300 resident species.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there.
Lewis Carrol

Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
