Selinda Camp
Linyanti and Selinda

Selinda Camp nestles discreetly in the impressive and pristine 320,000 acre Selinda Reserve of northern Botswana, perched on the eastern banks of the Selinda Spillway. Open grasslands as far as the eye can see are dotted with palm islands and water holes, attracting large numbers of plains game and predators alike. Loved for its terrific game viewing and great hospitality, Selinda is a set in a truly spectacular and unique landscape. Approaching the camp is an experience in itself. After a game drive to the boat terminal, guests are then picked up by speedboat and transported down river, and access to the camp is via a private walkway.

Each of Selinda Camp's eight spacious, canvas tented suites are shaded with thatched roofs and raised on wooden decks with a large private verandah for a slice of one’s own private Africa. More than 50% of each room is outside, maximising the safari experience. Each tent has a small seating area and desk. One of the tents is a family unit, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms connected by a wrap-around deck. Selinda’s commanding main lounge and dining area is raised with fabulous views of the Spillway. The décor is mix of cool Zanzibar and modern African safari style with soaring high ceilings and lots of outside space.  

Nearby is the large walk-in wine cellar and art gallery as well as the curio shop. After the day’s events, the pool is a welcome respite, and then a drink around the fire pit rounds out the day beautifully. Safaris excursions from Selinda are many and varied. With the dynamic surrounding area, game viewing, walking, boating and mekoro rides are all possible depending on water levels. Wild swimming in the crystal clear water is also an option for the brave amongst us. The Selinda Reserve, in the dry season, has the highest concentration of elephant in Botswana. It is also home to huge wild dog, lion and water buffalo populations. 

Selinda Explorers is the sister, entry level camp, still beautifully comfortable just without the trimmings of the premium property. Both camps are owned by Great Plains, whose staunch not-for-profit model mean that 100% of profits go into habitat expansion and community projects in which the safari camps are located.

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North 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
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
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
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
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
