Selinda Reserve

Owned by conservationists, Selinda Reserve is northern Botswana’s top wildlife sanctuary. The reserve borders Kwando to the north, and Linyanti to the east. Selinda Reserve used to be a hunting ground but has been transformed into a conservation success story as part of the Great Plains Conservation project.

The Selinda Spillway, a usually dry channel, lies in the middle of the reserve, connecting the Linyanti river system to the Okavango. Selinda is a game rich area and offers guests an exclusive safari experience.
