A Lavish New Safari Camp in Botswana

August 16, 2019

The Selinda Spillway is a legendary channel linking the Okavango Delta and the Linyanti Swamps in northern Botswana, the water of which sustains one of the highest and most spectacular concentrations of big game animals in Africa. This remote and unspoiled area has also achieved fame through the acclaimed wildlife documentaries of Dereck and Beverly Joubert, filmmakers and explorers-at-large for National Geographic, most recently in “Birth of a Pride,” which premiered in December 2018. The Jouberts were also among the founders of Great Plains Conservation, an admirable safari company with upscale camps in Kenya and Zimbabwe, as well as Botswana.

Their latest venture, Selinda Camp, made its debut in June and is located on the 500-square-mile Selinda Reserve, in a region famous for huge elephant herds and packs of wild dog, as well as lion. Its three lavish tents come with expansive verandas and private plunge pools. Wildlife viewing is by vehicle, boat and on foot. In addition, the nearby Selinda Suite is a two-bedroom private tented villa, with its own dedicated guide, driver, chef and butler, which represents the ultimate in safari luxury (and is consequently not inexpensive at $12,528 a night for a maximum of four people).
