“Virtually alone in the world, with animals all around”
Maître de Maison - Daphne Kadiwa
Extending over 32,000 acres and linking the Okavango Delta to the Linyanti and Savute river systems, the private Selinda Reserve embodies Africa’s true spirit and, more specifically, that of Botswana. Located within this remote wilderness are Great Plains Conservation’s Selinda and Zarafa. Designed in an ecologically friendly manner, Zarafa Camp consists of large, sumptuously appointed tents, recreating the atmosphere of the very first safaris in their traditional style. Selinda Camp brilliantly synthesises the meeting of cultures thanks to its luxurious suites. In this exciting region, you will be able to appreciate the countless wonders of Botswana’s wildlife; it’s a veritable breeding ground for rare animals where nature has so much to offer. You’ll have the great privilege of observing the famous lions featured in Birth of a Pride, the film directed by Derek and Beverley Joubert for National Geographic, as well as endangered African wild dogs, hippos bathing in the lagoons, and large herds of elephants grazing peacefully in the surrounding area. It is a magical show enriched by the most beautiful sunsets in the world.
Great Plains Selinda

Unique in the world: One of the most pristine wilderness areas on the planet, and one of the most exciting too.

Discover the hotel

As the heat of the day dissipates and the dust of the plains settles, a beautiful peace descends around Selinda Reserve.
A Verreaux’s eagle-owl calls softly in the canopy of a giant ebony tree and the hippos’ mocking laughter echoes across the water...
This is where Dereck and Beverly Joubert lay their weary heads many years ago. The tranquility they found under a magnificent ebony tree became the focal point of Selinda Reserve. “Selinda Reserve,” is Arabic for “the beloved one”. The camp’s beautiful design and “green” construction of just 4 rooms in the main camp and a exclusive use 2 bedroomed private villa, The Dhow Suite, which includes a private guide & vehicle, private chef, manager and butlers and a spectacular main area take advantage of views over the lagoon, reflecting the desire for safari exclusivity and privacy. Selinda Reserve is a safari camp like no other, and one that you will quickly fall in love with, wanting to return to, time and again.

Our commitments

Forming an air-bridge between South Africa and Botswana to save a herd of 100 rhinos under threat from poachers: Selinda Reserve is actively involved in the unbelievable Rhinos Without Borders project.

4 million euros: the budget needed for this modern day Noah’s ark in order to give this endangered species a haven in Botswana. Over seventy rhinos have already been transferred to Botswana, and anti-poaching teams watch over them and other animals. When this transfer is over, it will be the turn of the other African wildlife species, equally threatened. The property is also involved in education: five full time staff teach 2000 children how to take care of their health and environment. This includes raising awareness of aids, the basics of nutrition and waste recycling methods. All building materials and furnishings were sourced from local, sustainable farms as much as possible
