Guide at the Selinda Canoe Trail -- Botswana

The Selinda Canoe Trail is a four-day, three-night trip that takes place along the Selinda Spillway in Botswana, offered from May to October. Camp is set up each night in secluded spots along the water -- far from modern conveniences such as electricity and flushing toilets, but as luxe as camping can get, with great meals and an attentive staff that does all of the setting up and packing up for you. Plus, our guide Cliffy was top-notch; he does an excellent job leading this "safari-on-water." The trip's highlights happen during the day, when you'll be able to spot incredible animals including elephants, hippos, and giraffes. But winding down under the stars, cocktail in hand, with the sound of Africa all around you, is pretty hard to beat as well. To schedule a trip, e-mail Cliffy at clintonphillips@live.com.
