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.
