Selinda Walking Trail
An excellent way to experience the remote wilds of northern Botswana on foot, this Trails Exploration enables exposure to the pristine Selinda ecosystem, the unique features of the floodplains of the Kwando and Linyanti waterways, and the Selinda Spillway (an ephemeral waterway, linking the Okavango Delta with the game rich floodplains of the Linyanti Swamps) and its flanking woodlands. The 135 000-hectare concession harbours one of the densest dry season concentrations of elephants in Africa and is a superb escape from the hustle and bustle of city life - a chance to reconnect with nature in a sustainable and environmentally sensitive way. The Trail is for reasonably fit guests over the age of 16 years.
Typically, guests undertaking a Selinda Walking Trail often start at of one of the reserve's permanent camps (Selinda or Zibadianja) and then they walk to either Mokoba or Tshwene trails camps. These semi-permanent camps are situated in two completely different habitat types. Tshwene is heavily wooded and overlooks a dry channel close to the Spillway, while Mokoba looks out over an expansive floodplain.
The adventure begins and ends at the Selinda airstrip with the optional extension either before or after the trail at one of Selinda or Zibadianja Camps. Over the three-night trail, guests walk under the guidance of an experienced, armed professional guide and a bushman tracker. With only about 7km walking between camps, the emphasis is on exploring Africa and its wonders at a pace set by the guests. A wildlife walk of about 3km is enjoyed each afternoon, returning before dark to enjoy sundowners around the camp fire.
