Great Plains opens safari camp in Botswana's Selinda Reserve: Travel Weekly

Great Plains has opened the six-bedroom Okavango Explorers Camp in the roughly 400-acre private Selinda Reserve in northern Botswana.

Located at the intersection of two iconic ecosystems, the upper Okavango Delta water system and the ancient Selinda Spillway, this area is teeming with wildlife.

The Okavango Explorers Camp features tented accommodations in the Selinda Reserve in northern Botswana.

“We are proud to introduce the latest camp in our Explorer Collection, set within what might just be Great Plains’ best-kept secret, the Selinda Reserve” said Great Plains co-founder Dereck Joubert. “Offering some of the highest concentrations of wildlife in the region, our guests can expect to spot lion, leopard and wild dogs, all of which hunt regularly in the area, along with elephants, giraffe and rare antelope.”

Okavango Explorers Camp sleeps a maximum of 12 guests, sharing, and provides a 1920s-style safari experience, including elephant-spotting canoe trips along the Selinda Spillway and exploring the area on foot like the explorers of a century ago. For a true bucket list-in-the-bush experience, guests can even opt to dine with their toes in the water, as the camp’s dedicated team arranges a lantern-lit, “floating” gourmet meal on the spillway.

Okavango Explorers Camp is the latest to join Great Plains’ Explorer Collection across Botswana and Kenya that emphasize the classic safari experience that leave a light footprint.

Nightly rates at Great Plains Okavango Explorers Camp start from $1,165 per person, per night. For more information or to book, visit
