The rains have been heavy allowing access to huge areas deep in the Selinda Reserve. This offer is unique in that it hosts a mere eight guests on each departure. The Trail reminisces the spirit of safaris of old, when days were spent on impromptu exploration and each night was spent camping along the banks of a river. Today, this adventure can be enjoyed on the Selinda Canoe Trail. For more information click here!

Historic Opening of the Selinda/Zarafa Waterway in Botswana

a

The Selinda Reserve is situated in the Linyanti Region of Northern Botswana and forms a vital conservation link between the Okavango Delta in the North West and Savuti / Chobe areas in the East. A river channel, known as the Selinda Spillway, ribbons through the reserve flowing eastward from the Okavango Delta into the Zibidianja Lagoon before splitting into the Linyanti and Chobe Rivers to feed the Savute Channel.

Up until two years ago, the Selinda Spillway was an interrupted waterway. Through increased rainfall levels in Angola, and theories of substrata seismic activity in 2008, the spillway now runs freely from the Okavango through to the Zibidianja Lagoon.

This incredible change has already had a marked impact on the activities of the Selinda Reserve. Fishing and boat cruises are expanded on the spillway and guests can arrive in camp by boat from the airstrip. Increased water levels have eliminated the two hour drive between Selinda Camp and Zarafa Camp. Guests can now find themselves in either the northern or southern parts of the reserve in less than thirty minutes.
