Review Summary


  • Great wildlife spotting
  • Intimate setting -- on the Selinda Spillway, with no more than 8 guests
  • Delicious food and beverages
  • Experienced and knowledgeable guide

  • Secluded area means no modern conveniences
  • Wild animals can occasionally be dangerous

Bottom Line

The Selinda Explorers Camp is a wildlife adventure that takes place along the Selinda Spillway, offered from May to October. Camp is set up with tents 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. The trip's highlight comes during the day, when wildlife such as elephants, hippos, and giraffes can be spotted. But winding down under the stars, cocktail in hand, with the sound of Africa all around you, is pretty hard to beat as well.
