Selinda Explorers Camp

An authentic, exclusive tented camp in a prime spot for big game

Selinda Explorers Camp

Selinda Explorers is the perfect destination for a luxury family safari in Botswana, with its understated, elegant camp design and impeccable service. 

Housing only ten guests and located in a prime game spot, this camp is ideal for families wanting to get off the tourist trail and into the wild. 

Camp life centres around the Bedouin-style main living area, furnished with campaign-style furniture and traditional Zanzibari soft furnishings. Guests can sit back around the traditional fire pit, feet in the sand, sharing stories of their day’s adventures.

Every tent has its own rustic charm, combining the canvas canopy with luxurious Persian carpets, hot showers and private verandas. The conjoining family room means that kids are reassuringly close, but have their own bathroom, dressing room and washbasin. 

As well as day and night game drives, guided walks, and fishing, guests can try something different at Selinda Explorers. The whole family can enjoy the unique experience of canoeing along the nearby Selinda Spillway, and kids can partake in the Young Explorers Programme – learning about animal calls, tracking wildlife and becoming a Young Explorer and Conservation Ambassador.
